I want to replace my rod tied to my Penn International 70vs. It will be my kite and trolling rod. Roller guides or no ??? I really like keeping it simple. Thanks.

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!


Tackle stores love me.
Fish fear me.

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.

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.
