Derek, i keep hearing from builders about how guides improve accuracy..would you please explain how this is done..the only way i know to improve accuracy is with lots of casting practice or move in closer to the target..lol.

I have used both and prefer the microwave system. They feel stronger and better built. Also as mentioned setup is super easy and I really like the way the guides are pressed into the ring. I had a boat captain say to me that he thought the microwave 30s would break and he can't get over how durable they are.

I agree with this opinion.
FUJI KR.
Better frame quality. Better ring quality. Especially Torzite. Easy spacing system, suggested settings in tables.
ATMW is just a very clunky system. It is also not suitable for UL and XUL systems.
Another advantage for FUJI is the color T2 and ready-made sets of guides.
I also like the ARROWANA series top guides with the F-type Torzite ring.
