I finished off this order for 3 rods (2) Bait casters and (1) spinning rod. Special request for the Rattan grips and Torzite guides.

Wow! The flamed Rattan really steps these baitcasters and spinning rods up several notches. Very classy.

I totally agree that those rods look very nice, but there's one nagging doubt in my mind. How do those Torzite guides perform as compared to the more usual stainless steel guides?

Pete, they don't get damaged by PE braid.

I would be nagged if they were not Torzite-lined guides.
If you note my BFS 1500C, the LW rider line guide is ceramic over titanium wire.
I'm a total fan of microguides with braid, and they work equally well with light mono or fluoro.
Even the BB line roller on the little Tica is TiN-coated.

I'm sure if you contacted Shane, he'd build you one however you want.
His finesse glass rods have a fan club even on Bass Resource forum.
