|Versatile AFTCO Lightweight Roller Guides bring new standards of guide performance to a wide range of FRESH AND SALTWATER rods
designed for 2 to 30-lb. test monofilament line. They are LIGHTER than most “ring” guides, yet TWICE AS TOUGH! With rugged graphite
composition frames and pure titanium guards and rollers, Lightweight Guides are virtually unbreakable, and their single-foot design and
ultra light weight in no way inhibit the action of lighter graphite and fiberglass blanks. In fact, Lightweight Guides CAST EVERY BIT AS FAR
AND AS ACCURATELY AS “RING” GUIDES, while at the same time,offering the ultimate in line-wear protection with their “roller guide”
design. Lightweight Guides require virtually no maintenance, and are available in Black Frames, with Titanium Guards.
AFTCO lightweight rollers also work great with the new braided “super-lines” because the roller turns with the line, eliminating running
friction. Due to their relatively small diameter, braided lines up to 80-lb test may be used with the lightweight rollers in situations where fish
smaller than the line test are being caught, or when targeting bottomfish, halibut, and other slow-moving species.
A typical set would include one #6 (stripper guide), one #5, two #4's, two #3's, one #2.5 and one #2, but the make-up of the set will vary with
the blank and its particular taper. The rollers and bearings of the #6 to #2 guides and LT-Series tip-tops are INTERCHANGEABLE.
