Fuji further extends the adoption of TORZITE-F rings to Arowana Top T-KG, T-KW and T-RV guides for 2016 in its quest for the ultimate lightweight, tangle-free guide.
Arowana Top T-KG Extension
Last year we saw the introduction of Fuji’s ‘Arowana Top’ T-KG guides, which Fuji touts as its lightest guide ever built thanks to a newly designed compact frame, short pipe and the use of TORZITE ring. Designed without any uneven ridges or frame joints, the Arowana Top’s high-profile, yet compact frame structure allows line to slide through smoothly and prevents line tangles around the tip.
Line funneling through the choke guide or exiting the top guide can occasionally come into contact with the guide frame at certain angles. Fuji subsequently introduced the TORZITE-F ring in 2015, which overcomes this issue by having a flanged rim covering the area where the line is most likely to come into contact with the guide frame. Despite the TORZITE-F’s relatively larger surface contact area, it is still lighter than a SiC ring of the same size and possesses the same inner diameter and properties of a regular TORZITE ring. At the time of introduction, only sizes 6, 7 and 8 of the T-KG top featured the new TORZITE-F flanged-rim ring. This year, Fuji further expands the TORZITE-F range of T-KG tip tops, making its flagship top guide now available in sizes from 4 up to 12.
T-KW Guides Get Flanged
There’s good reason to cheer for offshore, big-game casting/popping and tournament casting enthusiasts. TORZITE-F ring options are now available for Fuji KW guides from sizes 8 to 25. By featuring the flanged-rim TORZITE-F rings, the friction from thick leader knots is reduced, allowing for smoother line passage through the guides.
T-RV Reverse Guide Size Extension
Fuji’s TORZITE-F Reverse Guides also get a size extension with the introduction of sizes 30F and 40F, which will be ideal for heavy-duty spinning rods. The RV’s unique “3D Structure” frame design features a narrow slope gradually widening around the ring which prevents line from getting caught between the guide foot and blank while the tilted TORZITE-F ring position effectively unravels spiraling line from the spool and funnels it through the other guides smoothly when casting. According to Fuji, the RV frame design is stronger in tensile strength and stiffness compared to MNSG guides of the same size.
