I have been building fly rods for a couple of years now and have maintained what I guess would be a "traditionalist" approach to rod building in that I have stuck with snake type guides. I received a very sweet G&L Flycraft (out of Alberta) rod for my birthday that was built using the newer single foot SiC guides from Fuji. I wonder - what are the advantages with using these guides? I know they are spendy so there must be something special about them. Anybody else with experience using these guides? Thanks - Steve Hope is that Thing with Feathers..
