Fishing Rod Guides & Tip Rings

 
There are many different types of fishing rod guides in use today.
guide collage ppad 600w(copy)(copy)
There are many combinations of frame types and centre ring materials which can come with or without a plastic shock ring to help protect the extremely hard but slightly fragile centre ring material. 
 
Frames can be stamped from 1 pce. of Stainless Steel or Titanium or of the welded brass variety or as in the case of heavy roller guides, machined from a solid block of quality Aluminium. Typical colour finishes are Chrome, Black, Gold, Gunsmoke or bright ( natural Stainless Steel look ).
The centre ring can be made from many different materials also, but the most common are Titanium Oxide, Aluminium Oxide, Hialoy, Zirconium and Silicon Carbide. These materials have different hardness ratings, but all are capable of handling the modern more abrasive lines in use today.
See related article on Fishing Rod Guide development.
Below are some of the more common guides and tops in common use today.
