Since their inception, the ALPS regular XN guides have proven to be ideal when looking for a casting guide in medium or medium-heavy applications. The ALPS regular XN guides are for 25-50lb test, and boast SS316 stainless steel frame construction that also provides extreme corrosion resistance. The ALPS regular XN guides have the unique recessed ring design (RRD) creating a wider gluing surface between the ceramic ring and guide frame. This inevitably enhances the bond between the ring and frame while also protecting the ring from impact. Like all regular XN guides, the unique frame design virtually eliminates all line wrap while increasing strength without adding needless weight.
The NLG model features a Hard Aluminum Oxide Ring that are the highest grade aluminum oxide available. The rind of choice for many rod manufacturers. This highly polished ring offers excellent hardness, wear, and a very low coefficient of friction. It is hard enough to stand up to all super braid lines and offers unsurpassed value. These guides come with pre ground feet and is 28% lighter than other competing models.
