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.
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.
