AGS Guides

A friend has 2 identical Diawa Tatula Elite 7' 6" rods that have AGS carbon fiber (I believe) guides. Both rods have the same broken guides (I haven't asked). The reduction guides beyond the butt guides. The butt guides are 25mm, so I'm assuming the broken ones are 16mm, as the 3rd guide from the butt is a 12mm. I've checked a couple of web sites for those guides with nil results. Does anyone know where these guides could be purchased?
Thanks everyone.

The only way to get replacement AGS guides is to send the rod to Daiwa or look for take offs on the @#$%& site. North Fork sells composite guides now, they may be a suitable replacement. Or just put on regular guides as replacements, it will make about zero difference in performance.

Thanks Peter.
I had the same thought of replacing with something suitable, but wanted to try and replace with the same ones. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Those rods have a 5 yr, limited warranty. If that helps. I would look at NFC first as mentioned if you want to stay with CF.

I have talked with the company and they will not sell any parts to the public. The owner of the rods does not want the expense of sending them back to the company as the guides were broken accidentally, not a defect. I'll order other guides as Peter suggested.
Thanks everyone.

I've replaced several of these running guides BUT I have used recoil guides and Torzite guides instead since I have no AGS guides on hand. All of my customers have been happy.
