REC Guides

REC Logo

REC guides are made of a Nickel Titanium alloy. They are extremely hard but also flexible, and will recoil back into shape when impacted. The material will not corrode nor rust. With the lack of metal fatigue, these guides will last indefinitely. The guides are also lighter since they do not require additional plating, thus they contribute less mass to the rod. They are priced at about $2.50 each for the snake guides and $5.00 for the tip tops and stripping guides.

Fuji Guides

Fuji manufactures high quality stripping guides that are considered by some as the best on the market. These guides are available in a variety of frame and ring combinations. The Alconite ring Concept guides provide a rare combination of strength, lightness, and durability. The Silicon Carbide ring Concept guides use a polished SiC ring mounted directly to the frame, which reduces weight, increased heat dissipation and amplifies line sensitivity. The Hardloy guide is produced from a special blend of high-grade aluminum oxide. The ring is permanently mounted to the frame, which results in lighter weight, greater heat dissipation and decreased line wear. They are priced at about $2.50 for the Alconite guides, $4.50 for the Silicon Carbide, and $1.00 for the Hardloy guides.
