Alconite is Fuji's latest ceramic ring. The makeup of Alconite provides a rare combination of strength, lightness and durability not found in other rings. Alconite will only be available in Fuji's Concept guides and tops.
Fuji’s Engineers thought long and hard on how to make a guide lighter and stronger yet keep the cost down. After years of research they came up with Alconite, a special type of ceramic that offers strength, lightness, and durability. In fact Alconite offers 80% greater compression strength and is 20% lighter than aluminum oxide. Also through Fuji’s Diamond Polishing, Alconite boasts a finish that is smoother than that of Hardloy®. Fuji engineers were also able to make Alconite the thinnest and lightest ceramic ring available today; even 7% lighter than standard SiC Rings! Alconite is one more reason why Fuji is the undisputed leader in rod components.
