MicroWave Casting Guides

Product Details

MicroWave Line Control System

Introducing the MicroWave Guide System by the American Tackle Company. Inventor Doug Hannon – also known as "The Bass Professor" – partnered with American Tackle to conceive, design and manufacture the perfect line control system for casting rods.

The system addresses coiling-memory issues with monofilament but it's ideal for braided lines and really something that has to be felt and seen to be believed. It provides noticeable advantages that standard guide trains cannot by combining science, practical application and custom rod building principles. Many long hours of theory, design & physical testing has resulted in possibly the most dynamic guide train developments to date.

MicroWave vs. Standard 'Cone of Flight' Guides

Only sold as complete sets

Set includes 1 stripper guide & 8 running guides (9 total based on a 7' spinning rod, additional running guide available for longer rods). Also includes suggested layout measurements.

MicroWave Advantages

  • Increased Casting Distance. Achieved by capturing and directing energy into forward motion maintaining line speed.

  • Reduction in Fatigue. Less force is required for casting using increased line speed because the blank will load and recover more naturally without inhibition from increased line vibration.

  • Increased Casting Accuracy. Less force is required for casting using increased line speed because the blank will load and recover more naturally without inhibition from increased line vibration.

  • Increased Lure Range of Rod. Using controlled energy, lighter & heavier lure weights can be used without rod blank materials compensating for lost efficiency.

  • Wind Knot Tangling Elimination. Converts "pushing line energy" through a guide ring into "pulling line energy" preventing line from traveling beyond the larger stripper guide ring not allowing it to override the frame creating wrapping or knot formation. "And if that isn't enough we utilize our brand new Snagless running guides out to the tip". "Why use a stripping guide that's tangle free when you can use a guide that all but eliminates tangles and then employs snagless running guides for added insurance"

Matthew Mulbrook (Center Point, IA, US)
Microwave Casting Guides

Great set of guides that perform well, easy to install, just measure and wrap it on, the bases are a little steep, so I filed a lot to make an easy transition onto the guide. I think American Tackle could do better there. I will use again .

Hulbert Mundy (Cameron, NC, US)

Great line control, as well as controlling line twist. Great product, You should try them out on your next rod build. All I use.
