Re: Modifying rods for Alvey reels


alvey reels generally work far better on a low mount, another option might be to see if you can find a sliding reel seat so you an cast in low position and move it up for fishing.
have a look here for details on how alvey recommends setting up rods, has a pretty good diagram of where each guide should be placed. Ross at new brighton sports can also help with info on alvey reels/rods and can rebuild existing rods.
