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 Corrosion Control®
An Economical Solution to Longer Lasting Guide Trains
Fuji’s introduction of it’s proprietary Corrosion Control™ treatment marks a turning point in the evolution of low maintenance stainless guide frames. In tests carried out by an independent automotive corrosion testing facility in Japan, CC (Corrosion Control Matte Silver), BC (Corrosion Control Matte Grey) and new GM (Gunmetal Corrosion Control) frames outperformed all competitive stainless frames, including 316 Stainless, with Corrosion Control Frames showing no corrosion for 5 times longer than standard stainless steel.
I wanted to build a custom twitching rod for Fall Coho on the Washington Coastal rivers … these were perfect for a 7’9” fast action spinning rod.
