Ah, you do know who Matagi is right? So what problems do you imagine would come that company? We have no idea how you treat your gear, so how could we comment on durability in your hands? Rules haven't changed, light stuff is more delicate than heavy stuff. You can lose everything you gained by putting the wrong components on the rod, the blank is only part of the equation. I wouldn't have s first guide larger than a high frame 10 mm as the first guide on that build.
