LZR guides

Hey everyone, have any of you used the LZR guides from mudhole? I’m building a couple of 7ft MHX SJ843 spinners and got the LZRs in 20-12-5s to tip. I’m surprised at how small the 20 is as a stripper. It looks like they might be better for a ngc layout rather than a concept layout. Will they still work or should I go with a 25 or higher frame guides altogether? Thanks for any input
Oh, the reel will be a penn battle 3 in a 2500 and 3000 with 10-15lb daiwa j-braid

Mike,
It is common knowledge that not only the ring diameter but the height of the ring as well are important factors in a KR Concept reduction guide train; the whole concept involves smaller rings atop higher frames. A size 20 ring is a good choice for 20-30lb braid and your 2500-3000 reel. I do not know the height of your LZR but a Fuji KL 20-H is 50.8mm.

The LZR 20 (41.66 mm) is about the same height as a KL16H (43.3 mm).

By the way, just out of curiosity.

If the height of a ring on a guide measured from the foot to the center of the ring, or is it measured from the foot to the bottom, or to the top of the ring?

Take care

The heights I gave are total heights, bottom of foot to top of frame.

For what it is worth, given the same ring size, Fuji KH-Hs are a bit taller than the others I have seen; Minima Ms may be the closest.
