Most builder know that the original MicroWave guide system work wonderful for the lite and medium stuff and the MW30 has been a great addition for the heavier rods and larger reels......

25mm primary ring and 8mm secondary ring stripper guide
Utilizes 6mm running guides for passing large leader knots

I have used the original MW the MW30’s and the MW25’s. The 6mm running guides on the MW25 easily passes double uni-knots and is now my go to guides for my inshore builds. A set of MW25’s on a bushido blank makes killer inshore setup.

These are my favorite guides! I have been using them on inshore and saltwater jigging rods with great success! I also have some freshwater Trout rods with these guides and I am outcasting my buddies on a regular basis. Fantastic guides!
