KB Guides are an all new development based on research by FUJI into the high stresses placed on mid-section or “belly” guides of micro rods. Engineers discovered that in a “power bend”, stress moves to the mid-section of the rod and guide failure in this area was attributable to the small foot on most micro guides pulling out from under the wrap. KB Guides solve this problem with a broader, notched foot to better match rod diameters in this area of the blank and hold firm against pulling torque that develops when fighting trophy fish. Above size 6 the KT guide has a large enough foot to handle the torque and the KB is not needed.
