The single foot fly guides SFG/BSFG/GSFG are hard chrome plated
stainless steel in chrome, black chrome, and TiChrome. The guides only require one wrap.
This not only eliminates half the labor but it also reduces the weight of the rod
with the exclusion of the additional thread and epoxy needed to wrap
conventional two foot guides. The blank also has a more desirable parabolic flex
pattern. The wider diameter ring allows the line and leader to shoot more
freely, reducing line contact with the blank when casting. The reduced friction
further translates into greater casting efficiency.
