Silicon Nitride single foot guides

Silicon Nitride (SN) goes by many names in the rod building industry.  SN is a ceramic that is characterized by fracture resistance, extra strength, and high polish achievability.  SN is used in primarily in jet engine bearings and when casting a fly line through it you get a sense of why.  The line feels nearly weightless as it travels through the guides.  We offer the guides in four sizes:  5,6,7, and 8.  Please see below for guide specs and snake guide comparisons.  As with many ceramic guides you are able to size down a bit and still get excellent line handing and shooting capabilities.  The quality of these guides is outstanding!  Compare the width of the ceramic to other guides and you will find it to be roughly half the size.
