Guide Selection and Size

Rate this topic

8 posts in this topic

im having a medium action spinning rod built custom for me, and im looking at these Fuji SIC guides, that look like they will fit the application and there fairly cheap for SIC's

 

model number is LVSG. come in sizes 7,8,10,12,16,20,25, and 30.

 

how many of these guides would i need for a 7 foot spinning rod and what sizes would you reccomend.

 

thanks

im basically stuck between choosing either the FUJI BYAG alconite concept set which is $20

 

OR the SiC Concept Spinning Guide set which would run me $55

 

is the SIC worth more then 2x the price over the concept? if its worth it in the long run ill pay the price of the SIC's. if not please let me know

try the search function - SiC vs alconite has been thoroughly debated recently. for the most part theres a concensus that for the majority of applications SIC is overkill, but if cost isn't an issue, SICs are the best.

 

For a light to medium spinning rod, I'd go with the BYAGs.

Building a rod right now using SiC's. They look great but they are much more expensive as you pointed out. But if you like 'em and don't mind the hit, go for it. However, I did think about the SiC tip top and Alconite guides and might use that combo sometime. Good Luck.
