Micro Guides are on the horizon and coming fast...
for some very good reasons:
- Sensitivity from the line (i.e. strikes or soft pick-ups) is transferred into the rod blank in more places
- Castability increases with better line alignment along the rod and more line control for increased distance.
- Balance improves by reducing the overall weight up to 80% over standard components which lessens strain and fatigue.
- Performance is enhanced because the Single-Foot design won't stiffen rod, even with more guides.
- Hooking power increases because Micro Guides transfer more hook set energy directly to the line.
