Hopkin's & Holloway English Twist Guides
English twist guides are made by twisting wire to the left as opposed to "American" style guides that twist to the right. There is open debate regarding the impact of the direction of twist, but for certain the classic "English" twist gives a rod a distinctive look that is sought after by many bamboo rod builders. There is only one maker of these classic guides, which is Hopkins & Holloway. These guides come straight from England and are as authentic as they get.
