  1. Kevin, Thank you for the kind words in regards to our Guides> We have been selling these guides now for over 10 years and yet have had a complaint in regards to the "Double Black Coating". We offer this extra feature in all of our guide frames and feel it is the best on the market. The New ALPS guides (LXN, MXN, XN, XP, XY, XVD, XST along with the Forecast guides and tops feature this "Double Black Coating" And all corresponding tops. This is one reason why the largest Manufacturer in the USA (St. Croix) uses them by the 100,000 each year. I know we are not very active on this board but please feel free to direct any questions you have to the Batson TEAM. Remember we are a US family owned and operated company that directly employs 13 team members in house and literally feeds 1000's of families with the products we supply to this GREAT industry. We thank you all for your support. Contact us anytime > Bill Batson CEO Batson Enterprises Inc batson@******************.com No links or advertising Bill. I left what I thought didn't violate those rules.

  12. In the VD series we carry them in the #50 in all but the (VDLG = Polished SS304) I would consider using the (TC= Titanium Carbide) plated VD or the (DBC = Double Black Chrome) These test the best for salt water applications. See Page 33 & 34 of the 2006/2007 106 pg color catalog. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us. Bill Batson
  13. Batson Ent / Forecast Guides are IMHO the best Guides on the market with simular substate materials. They have been tested ( By an independant laboratory) against every other Guide MFG. Our DBC (Double Black Chrome) tested the best for Salt Water Corrosion against ALL others. This is why such Famous companies as St. Croix use them, not to mention alot of other O.E.M. in the USA. That particular Guide ( BVDLG ) has a substrate material SS304, that has been a staple in the industry for many years. We are also one of the only MFG that carry it in a size 50. We have raised the bar by now offering guides in a SS316 substarte material. We are the first MFG to offer such an improvement in a substate material. To find out more about the Batson Ent - Forecast product line please feel free to contact us. I am sure you will get more feedback on this question from Builders that have used our products and have been very pleased with the advancements which we have made as far as our product lines. Thank you for knowing that you have an Choice when it comes to quality products. Bill Batson CEO Batson Enterprises. Rainshadow/Forecast/ALPS product lines....
