K-Series Guides For Fuji’s New KR Concept Micro/Braid System
KR Concept is a game changer in terms of great performance at lighter weights. KR Guide trains are lighter than anyone could have imagined just a few years ago. Although Fuji developed the concept with special attention to the “micro” craze, in the final review they realized the parameters were appropriate for any braided line and for conventional “non-micro” rods as well. Ultimately, KR Concept has impact far beyond micro rods and is an advance in the performance of any rod using braid and most rods using monofilament or fluorocarbon lines. The K- Series Guides in this section are designed specifically for builders wanting to apply the KR Concept to a wide variety of finished rods.
Fuji’s newest and certainly one of the most unique guides ever developed is the KR Concept Double-Foot “RV”. RV is stirring things up among surf casters looking for big, lightweight, long-casting KR Concept surf rods for the unforgiving beaches of the Northeast. In addition, Fuji also included a small size 6 stripper designated as the one stripper choice for KR Concept casting rod layouts. The higher smaller ring manages casting chatter better than any guide tested.
