RECOIL NF (Nickel Finish RSN)

RECOIL BP (Black Pearl RSNXB)
All rods can be fitted with titanium nickel RECOIL guides, in Black Pearl or regular Nickel finish.
For lightweight rods, lower line weight rods, the light duty Freshwater (RSN) model is recommended.
For heavier rods, higher line weights stillwater and saltwater), the heavy duty Saltwater (RSNX) or its Black Pearl (RSNXB) version are preferable.
Why RECOIL guides? Although quite pricey in direct comparison to quality hard chrome stainless steel guides, RECOIL guides are extremely strong, virtually unbreakable due to their elastic properties: titanium nickel alloy is a memory alloy that can be crushed and compressed – it will always spring back to its original shape. The other major advantage is its light weight. Although we use lightweight regular guides on all of our rods, RECOIL guides weigh even less.
Longer rods can be built by saving a few grams in the front portion, positively affecting the rod’s action as can be found on our Maxia Fast Water Dry & Nymph 10’5”#3 and Ten Footer Allround River & Stream 10’0”#4 rods, for example.
On saltwater rods like the Seabass Seven, Seabass Eight and Seabass & Pike Nine RECOIL guides are particularly interesting as they are impervious to saltwater corrosion!
