Fuji BCKLAG corrosion control?

@Croaker JO need your input on this please. I was excited when the corrosion control guides were introduced but now I’m starting to regret putting them on a bunch of rod. Noticed some discoloration on the base of some guides on a few rods. Figured it was no big deal, it’ll happen eventually with all guides.
 

But on the latest rod that I fished for only the past 4 months the guides look terrible. Granted I don’t rinse off my rods after every trip but this never happened with the black kl/kw guides... Is this a common or known occurrence with the corrosion control guides?

Unfortunately all of my builds with the CC finish have done this. Some have only been used once....

 

I have since switched to all black, which is a shame  since I love the CC finish look.

Not sure when you ordered these, but I know the first batch when they came out in March 2018 had issues like this - a lot of teh guys who purchased from me had this happen. My understanding is they've corrected this problem, and I waited a year+ to see if the issues stopped and it seems like it has. I just restocked 20 sets of CC and BC's in KW and LKW.

Ok so I'm not alone in this. Sucks because I used them on a few rods for friends too, guess I'll have to redo those sooner down the road than expected.

 

@Billy 40 got teh guides about mid July from mudhole. Really hesitant on ever using them again.

I spray my stuff down pretty religiously and I haven't noticed anything like that yet. I have gotten a few rust stains from hanging hooks on the guides after rinsing. I'm pretty paranoid now though, maybe I need to go have a closer look. I literally just finished a rod last night with guides I purchased the first month they were out, doh!

Cut them off while the epoxy is still soft!
