Tsunami Airwave and Fuji "Hardloy" Guides?

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic


Guys,



 



Any idea if the Fuji Hardloy guides on the surf model Airwaves are better than the Pacbay ones used in previous models?  Are these good guides in general?



 



"All-day casting no longer means sore arms and a tired angler because light weight is part of every Airwave rod design from the high-density blank to the Fuji® Concept™ Alconite guides used on the inshore models, the tough Fuji® Hardloy™ guides used on the Surf series and the Grade A cork or durable, textured vinyl grips."



 



Thanks

Fuji frames are better than Pacific Bay and Hardloy has been used on all types of factory surf rods for years. They are still used on many rods, and Custom Builders still like it for it's cost effectiveness and ability to handle modern braided lines.

If you are looking for heavier action, stiff rods, the new Tsunami Airwave Elite surf rods come with the Fuji K-series alconites. The stripper guides are large though, around 50mm I think. These are little lighter than the hardloy.
