My buddy who wraps my rods says roller guides are important when a small area of line will rub the guides for a long period of time like when trolling. If it was a bait stick at least 1/3 of the line would rub the guides. With trolling it would be a few feet and could wear on it. Good luck!
The international 70v Reels have long been considered as the Gold Standard of big game fishing reels, it offers very advanced and reliable fish-fighting performances.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Harris625,
Check out the rail rods being built now and you will see mostly ringed guides. Some are going RS/RT (roller striper/roller tip) but with the use of spectra and shorter topshots/wind on's most people have come full circle and went back to ringged guides.
