Tony,
This is a "how much" moment, you don't see this statement being said, nor an answer given, when someone declares they have a better setup than everyone else, but it's relevent all the time.

Guide placement serves two purposes I can think of: (1) to evenly distribute the strain of a load along the blank's length (2) to minimize friction created by the line touching the blank and guides during the cast. It seems unlikely one configuration of guides best serves both requirements?
