Guides 1st or grips & reel seat

Building my 1st rod (have wrapped guides no issues )

was about to start wrapping then I realized this is a 1 piece rod its tapered.

Whats the easiest answer? Grips and reel seat 1st or last?


thanks

I have always done grips/seat before guides. Get the handle locked down, then guide placement and test casting.
