Just looked at a FibLinks 704 Spin rod that I have for a guide replacement. The first three guides are Y type guides and the remainder are V type. Probably a no name foreign knock off guides. They are black with a black ceramic ring. They are not AT guides because they don’t make a Y type guide without a cross brace. Look like PacBay hialoy guides, but I have only seen them in a V frame. Could be Fuji LY and LV guides with aluminum oxide rings, or CRB YG and VSG guides. Even if they are not these they are both a close match.

Leonard,
Rather than spending a lot of time and extra money to try to match a 1-off rod with unusual guides, I will generally just strip the guides off of the rod and use stock guides that I have for a rod repair. Normally, it only takes a few minutes to strip off the rest of the guides and to start clean on the repair rather than spending a lot of time and money to obtain a couple of mismatched guides.

But, always your choice.

Good luck

I think either the black Fuji SV or CRB DF with Aluminum oxide rings would be a close fit. Or do as Roger suggests and replace them all with inexpensive guides.
