SSR Guides by CRB
Combining affordability and value with the utmost strength and durability, the SSR Guides by CRB are engineered with stainless steel frames and a double swaged stainless steel insert rings for virtually impact proof performance. The minimal design of the SSR Guides creates a lighter overall guide train with thinner rings that produce a larger opening to easily pass leader knots and swivels without damaging fishing line, braid, or the SSR ring itself. Plus, two sleek frame finish options: polished, or black frames with polished rings.
The stainless steel ring of the SSR Guide creates a thinner insert ring with a larger opening that eliminates friction while casting and retrieving fishing line or braid. Featuring a double swaged design, the SSR ring is sealed into the frame with impenetrable strength and security for the ultimate ring retention and durability.

Model YXG - Guide Specifications
|Guide Height MM
I use both the CRB YXG and VXG on ice rods. The YXG are much taller than the VXG and it is great to have both height options to tailor your guide set to your specific desires. (see attached picture for reference)
For ice fishing, both the YXG and VXG rings are nice and thin which helps reduce ice buildup. The guide feet come prepped pretty well, although I always do some extra filing on the guide foot to get even more of a gradual slope for the thread to climb up on.
I couldn't be happier with the quality, selection, price, and appearance of both the YXG and VXG guides and I use them on every ice rod I build.
