So now we can’t call titanium guides titanium any more? Do we have to refer to titanium guides by their alloy composition, such Ti-6Al-4V guides? Or should we refer to the titanium grade such as titanium grade 5 vs grade 2I guides. Maybe it would it be less confusing to talk about alpha vs beta titanium alloys? Get REAL! You can call them any thing you want! I’m still calling them titanium guides, knowing that they are a titanium alloy. Now I’m done.

Herb give it up! Your blather is driving me crazy. If you knew something about titanium alloys I would respect your opinion more, than I currently do.

Okay guys, I think anyone with half a brain gets the gist here. No need for further argument.

You actually have at least four grades that are all considered to be commercially pure and unalloyed. You might say it has to do with the amount of impurities found normally in a pure metal or crystal.

A little like grading diamonds:)

Hi Y'all,
Below I've pasted a link to a wikipedia page with specifics regarding Ti grades. It's pretty interesting reading if anyone cares to learn more.
And to Tom's point, I think the gist was conveyed back in the very first post. If the second post was a serious material inquiry it would have been more than two words and given some background regarding confusion about guide frame materials. Rick was just stirring the pot a bit, which he did, in spades.

Why can't you ever stick to your word when you say you're done ? Since Tom let you get in another bashing of me and let it stand i know he will allow a final word from me so here it goes , Stop pretending to be an expert in everything , you are the furthest thing from an expert on anything especially metals & alloys and on another note , if you actually think that i care what you or anyone else thinks of me , i'll use one of you're own terms " Get Real" !!

Thank you Tom for being fair.
