Took an hour off this afternoon, to rest my eyes a bit, inbetween batches of reels ... and took my modded Poseidon HMG Lite 13'6" and MAG-IT Trini 16A out for a testcasting session ...
Grootvis, Tackleholic and Enigma, convinced me to rebuild the guide train, from the standard factory-build Pacbay flip up and standerd guides, to three fuji lowrder LC Alconites, followed by 8 KWAG runners and a BMNAT Alconite tip ... maybe one of these three gents,can tell us a bit more, about just WHY it makes all the difference, but .... I will just show you, what the totally filled reel, looks like, before the cast .... and thereafter... reel is set up with the MAG-IT Magnetic Cast Control System and a loose spool, so that you can wind it and launch, as hard as you like, without ever touching the spool, with sinker in flight, for max, safe casting distance, in practical fishing conditions, NOT SPECIFICALLY FOR DISTANCE CASTING, but boys, does she sing and that with straight braid as mainline !!!

Many meters of braid,down inthe line column, saw daylight today,for the first time ever on this reel !!!

Pic BEFORE THE CAST !

Nice stuff Wilhelm.

To my mind a couple of reasons (OTHER than your casting ability and reel tuning skills)

Multiplier reels might not throw coils like a spinner, but they DO throw waves (sine waves to be specific) and even with a relatively narrow reel like you are using the waves are not only going up and down but also oscillating from one side of the rod to the other.
As the line leaves the spool, these waves, like the coils on a spinner need to be brought under control, quickly and AWAY from the blank to avoid line slap (multi rods are NOT immune to line slap) Hence our collective suggestion of a small ring high frame butt guide to collect the waves and then with a further 2 guides get the line down to the rod flowing in a neat straight well behaved line..

Multi's are also not immune to line overshoot - line flows past the guide, gets under the main line and back up over the guide, especially the first 2 or three; you CAN get a wrap with a multiplier, the reduction you used train eliminates tangles.

Thereafter  a greater # of smaller guides (small is relative and dependent on line/leader and application) allow for better line tracking - they keep the line from misbehaving and slapping the blank, keep it "in line" as it were. (sorry very bad pun)

But the greater # of guides also benefits in other ways too:
You use more of the blank to generate not only pulling power against fish, but pulling power against the sinker.
Result: better blank loading on a cast.
Better EASIER distance.

More fun, at least equal distance  to  an "ordinary" set up with WAY less effort or same effort and staggeringly better distance.
Win Win.

Sorry for posting a partially "rod-topic" in the reel Dept, but the topic is fully connected ... like a rod&reel ! ;)

Note that on the actual build, the LC Lowrider, closest to the reel, is reversed, with the single leg, facing the reel, when compaired to the lay-ou pic and the 2nd and 3rd LC's, fitted in conventional way with double legs facing the reel ...

With rod & reel fine-tuned and matched perfectly with one another, as well as line & sinker, you end up with way more, than the sum of the components and a pure joy to cast and fish !!! :wfish
