I am considering building a new striper rod that will be used with integrated T-14 lines and possibly T-17 or T-20 with running lines like a Airflow Ridge. In the past I have heard the single foot titanium with Sic inserts are heavy and may not be a good choice with light weight fast action rods. I also understand that these guides may get me a little more distance. Anyone want to give me their thoughts on how these guides differ from traditional guides as far as how the rod feels or casts? What is the weight difference and how much more wind do they capture? Thanks!
