Home Rod Building and Reel Repair

Which wat two footed guides?

A little advice please: the two footed guides I have to repair an old rod have a somewhat pointed foot with a bit of a beveled edge and the other foot is a vey small loop, extremely tight loop. Does it matter which foot points toward the tip! Thanks.

    Not sure about foot shapes, but are the guides with three posts? If so, then one post towards the tip of the rod, and the side of the guide with 2 posts from ring to the foot should be pointing towards the handle or reel seat or butt end of the rod.
