American Tackle Ring Lock™ guides are designed for the ultimate in performance and durability. They incorporate a system of pressure fit, enlarged glue reservoir and increased contact area around the ceramic ring to dramatically reduce ring failure. Added bracing and unique frame features greatly reduce ring popping lateral torque through a more stable frame. ATLAS 316SS™ frame material adds tremendous strength to weight ratio giving this series of guides the edge to outlast and outperform all others.
RING LOCK SYSTEM
The Ring Lock system is focused on preventing ring loss and protection from impact to provide the strongest and most innovative guide on the market today!
Frames comprised of 316SS stainless steel adds tremendous strength to weight ratio giving this series of guides the edge to outlast and outperform all others.
The American Tackle Company is proud to own the official Ring Lock™ Patented Design. US-Patent No. D627,032
Ring Materials Advanced Ceramics
The strength of our NanoLite ring allows elimination of material which results in reduced weight without sacrificing strength. Hardness and low coefficient of friction means these rings will easily handle all of today's modern braids and super lines.
A new and improved, proprietary high grade Aluminum Oxide based ring material allows for the reduction of material volume meaning lighter weight and higher compression strength. Economical and highly durable, these rings are popular with rod manufacturers.
Our NanoPlasma ring features high tensile strength, diamond polished, braid proof NanoLite ring with rounded ID's and a new PVD Titanium Nitride or Titanium Oxide coating. The Plasma deposition ring gives you a near zero coefficient of friction extending line life while increasing hardness.
We've been using the American Tackle Nanolite single foot guide for builds and repairs. They are a great value and hold up well. The 316 stainless frame material is very strong and the Nanolite ring is braid proof. We recommend the Nano Plasma or Painted 316 for light saltwater use. Good luck and tight lines.
