I used to use Fuji SIC exclusivly until a few years ago. I built a rod with Alpls TIYTZG guides as per customer request and was so impressed with the fit and finish that I now look at Alps before anything else as i,m working up a build profile for a customer.

I build all fly rods with Batson guides. Great selection and rarely have to touch a file to the feet. Only use something else if customer insists.
