Blanks and guides are not tested to determine the optimum positioning (nor can they mate a particular reel and line combination to them); instead an average spacing is determined despite the fact that no two fishing rods (even within a production run) are exactly the same. A professional custom builder ensures that both static (for stress distribution) and dynamic (for best casting performance) testing occurs.
Lets walk through a brief example: Pick up the exact two casting rods from a local retailer place the same reel on each of the two rods and then place them into their respective "optimum" parabolic shapes by pulling the tips using the line. Now note where the fishing line touches the blank and note the tip twist (or torque). If they were the same the line will touch at the same points and the twist (or hopefully lack of twist) would be equivalent as well. Now cast. Distance and accuracy should be equivalent however in every case this will never happen with an "off-the-shelf" fishing rod because they are manufactured using guide placements in the exact same spot of every blank being constructed (i.e. they are not made of homogenous or equivalent materials and will never be the same). Currently I know of no company that mass-produces and also takes the time to individually tune every guide under both a static and dynamic load prior to wrapping guides... both of which are required to achieve optimum guide placement and ultimately rod performance (not to mention a few critical requirements that are never performed before guide placement... such as splining balancing of the handle system tuning guide systems etc.). Dont get me wrong there are companies that take the time to complete a step or two of the overall process but there are none that perform all of the required steps. A professional custom builder strives to ensure that component integration is accomplished to elicit the very best performance from each fishing rod. If a customer takes the time to identify and choose those premium components that compliment their angling style technique and specifications... then you can rest assured that the custom builder works to ensure their finished sport-fishing equipment performs the way they expected it to... and then some.
