Finally got around to building the granddaughters their rods. Pretty much fun, as I let them pick all the components. Here's how they turned out.

And yes, the guides are spiral wrapped. Makes since to do it this way for little people. Reduces arm torque.

When spiral wrapping the guides like that do you use a spinning blank or a casting blank?

I've used both to build baitcasters. The guides, blanks nor fish know the difference.....
