Single-foot micro guides for spinning, casting and fly rods. Nickel titanium alloy. Black pearl finish.
REC introduces a revolutionary new material for rod guides. RECOIL GUIDES (US PATENT #6,612,065) are made from a special nickel titanium alloy with unique physical properties which provide exciting new possibilities for rod designers worldwide. Until now, rod guides have been plated or have used ceramic inserts to provide wear resistance. RECOIL guides are made from an extremely hard but flexible "Shape Memory" alloy, which does not require plating, cannot corrode in any environment, and returns to its original shape after repeated deformations.
