or SiC is one of the most advanced ceramics available today. It’s the
hardest and most durable in Fuji’s lineup and because of this, SiC Guides are particularly well suited for
braided line. They also utilize Fuji’s Diamond Polishing and boast one of the smoothest rings around. SiC
rings were also the first ever to be mounted directly to the frame, thus reducing weight, increasing heat
dissipation and amplifying line sensitivity. They’ll take whatever you throw through’em!
is an improved version of the original ring, making it a perfect
ceramic guide for heavy duty rods. It was designed for use as ball bearings in jet engines,
because of its tremendous hardness factor and high wear resistance. If it can handle the heat
and friction of a jet engine, just imagine how well it will perform under the toughest fishing
conditions. And if there ever was a ring built for wire line, this is it. Silicon Nitride has the
strength and durability needed to tackle any kind of saltwater fishing.
Fuji’s engineers thought long and hard on how to make a guide lighter and stronger yet keep
the cost down. After years of research they came up with Alconite, a special type of ceramic that offers
strength, lightness, and durability. In fact Alconite offers 80% greater compression strength and is 20%
lighter than Aluminum Oxide. Also, through Fuji’s Diamond Polishing, Alconite boasts a finish that is smoother
than that of Hardloy5. Fuji engineers were also able to make Alconite the thinnest and lightest ceramic ring
available today; even 7% lighter than standard SiC Rings! When combined with the lightweight Concept
frame the results are unparalleled ... 35% lighter and up to 50% stronger than ordinary guides.
has offered anglers a reliable, cost effective and high performance solution for many
years. Hardloy is made of a special blend of high grade Aluminum Oxide. This blend produces a much
higher compression strength and makes Hardloy much more durable, lighter weight and greater heat
dissipation. All of these factors combine to make Hardloy an excellent choice for the avid angler.
The innovative idea of using ceramics as a fishing guide started
some 40 years ago with the introduction of Aluminum Oxide, also known as the Hard Ring guide. With
this new material, Fuji started a revolution in guide development that has been a mainstay for rod
builders and fisherman over all these years. All Aluminum Oxide rings are diamond polished to an
ultra-smooth finish and come in a variety of frame styles and finishes.
