Snake Brand Universal Spey guides are sized the same as the standard 4,5, and 6 size universal guides, but they are made from a slightly heavier wire (0.038"). This small adjustment allows spey heads and knots to pass through the guides in a straighter line and increase line speed. These guides feature the same foot design and attention to detail as the standard universal guides. Ever struggle with flat foot guides on a round blank? Snake Brand Universal Guides are the answer. Universal guides feature feet that are contoured to fit a round blank without any gaps. The bottom of a Universal guide also self aligns the guide to the blank, thus making perfectly straight guide alignment a breeze. Like all Snake Brand Guides the Universal guides feature perfectly cut feet to ensure even wraps and a seamless taper at the end of the foot that makes wrapping from the blank to the guide effortless. Guides are made start to finish in the U.S. under the careful eye of Mike McCoy.
