Thank you Rick for the questions... here are a couple videos that show line flow taming... we have had many rods out for testing and we consistently hear how they help new casters cast better and do not hinder expert casters.

Extensive testing and high speed filming from many different companies (American Tackle included) clearly shows large waves and line slap that continues through the guide train... the stripper guide in casting and fly situations works the same as spinning... gathers, controls and funnels the line straight for optimal performance.

The Ti-Forged guides are available in Titanium, Black Titanium, Black 316 Stainless and Polished 316 Stainless. Give them a try, I am sure you will love them.

If you saw that claim from an American Tackle employee then I would say it is true, if not then I would say it is not.

They ARE NOT the same blanks re-labeled... I cannot speak for the CRB blanks but I can tell you the ATX VJ blanks are among the best on the market. They are widely used all over the world by custom builders and rod manufacturers alike. Give them a try, you will like them.
