That hybrid LC and K- guide setup is just the ticket for a distance stick...good choice. Nice workmanship....love to see the distance it gets. The fish fighting potential realised by those running guides is something to experience.

I have, but Bamboes Vis will only test tomorrow.
The rod and reel were for his wife....
If there is one way to get your other half to join you on the beach, this is it!
I will leave comments on its performance to him.
