LZR Medium-Duty Tip Tops incorporate an ultra-thin zirconium insert pressed into a stainless steel frame for superior performance at an unbeatable value.
These medium-duty tip tops can be used for spinning and casting rods.
LZR Guides by CRB
The LZR line of spinning and casting guides marks CRB’s lightest and most innovative rod guide system to date.
The advanced engineering of the ultra-thin, super light zirconium insert provides a high-density, polished ring that is then pressed into the stainless steel frames. Featuring a larger and smoother opening, the zirconia insert rings bring increased durability for braid as well as enhanced heat dissipation that reduces wear on fishing line and increases casting distance and accuracy.
From reducing line tangles and overall weight, to increasing casting distance, strength, and ring retention, the CRB LZR guides combine superior performance and unbeatable value for rod builders everywhere.

LZR Guide Technology
CRB introduces the LZR line of rod guides as its lightest and most advanced design yet in a family of high-performance rod components. Engineered with ultra-thin, super light zirconia rings, the LZR guides incorporate a high-density, polished insert ring that is 50% thinner than standard ceramic rings with an inner diameter up to 10% larger than comparable guides.
This guide technology allows the LZR series to be incredibly light, yet durable enough for the toughest braid—while also featuring enhanced heat dissipation that reduces wear on fishing line and increases casting distance as well as accuracy.
The LZR Guides are available in single-foot spinning, double-foot casting, medium-duty spinning/casting, running guides, and even tip tops; light and medium-duty.

Tip Top Sizing
Insert Ring/Loop Sizing
The first measurement in a Tip-Top is the Outside Diameter (O.D.) of the ring (eyelet) in Millimeters. Generally, the O.D. of the ring will match the smallest guide on the rod. Standard sizes are 6, 8 and 10mm for conventional rods, while heavier saltwater rods may go as high as a 16mm ring.
The second measurement in a Tip-Top is the Inside Diameter (I.D.) of the tube, measured in 1/64ths of an inch. Tube sizes generally range from 3.5 to 12, but they go all the way up to 32 (.500") in Big Game roller tops. The tube size should correspond to the tip size given by the manufacturer of your blank.

I have been using CRB LZR GUIDES AND BOTH MEDIUM AND LIGHT TIP TOP FOR THE LAST 3 years. I recommend LZR guides and tip tops.
I like the design
After Fuji began discontinuing many of the guides that I use to use on my builds, I thought I would give these a try. Even before I built my own rods, I wouldn't own a rod that didn't have Fuji guides. After about a year or so of hard use and some abuse, I can honestly say these are my favorites now. They're light, strong and dependable. I almost exclusively build rods for big swimbaits and these have held up and perform excellent. As of now, I have zero insert breakage, no guides that are bent or damaged or any guides that show any signs of wear other than maybe a few spots where the coating has rubbed off of the frame and I can think of more than one occasion that the guide(s) should have been damaged or broken due to my own fault. I'm not rough with my gear but all of my gear is used like tools because that's exactly what they are. I think I have four rods wrapped with these guides now and I have zero concern moving forward with them. I definitely recommend wrapping your next custom build these guides! You won't regret it!
