All the other rods i tried to find out what this problem was do have a different guide setting..let's say...a good setting that prevents the line from hitting ( or making contact with) the blank.
Every fly rod I've ever owned with snake guides does this, so I doubt it's the guide spacing. It's likely that it's either your casting, or the rod is mislabeled and actually a heavier weight. (Assuming there is nothing sticky on your stick)
