Why less with high frame guides

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me why high frame guides enable you to use less guides on a spinning rig? I can understand the advantage to having the stripper guide farther away from the blank as line spool off a spinning real. I can also see how higher guides might help a conventional setup given that the line tends to contact the blank as the rod flexes while fighting fish. But how does a higher guide help with a spinner as you progress toward the tip of the rod. Thanks for help with what is probably a silly question.

PM,

 

You answered your own question. By having the guides sit higher off the blank you can use fewer guides to keep the line off the blank.

 

There are trade offs though. The new Fuji Concept system says that you should use more guides that sit lower on the blank for optimum performance. The "Concept Guides" are lighter in weight than standard guides so as not to weigh down the forward section of the blank and impede performance.

 

Hope this answers your question.
