CRB’s LZR Guide Series is its lightest and most advanced design yet in a family of high-performance rod components. Engineered with ultra-thin, super light zirconia rings, the LZR guides incorporate a high-density, polished insert ring that is 50% thinner than standard ceramic rings with an inner diameter up to 10% larger than comparable guides.

This guide technology allows the LZR series to be incredibly light, yet durable enough for the toughest braid—while also featuring enhanced heat dissipation that reduces wear on fishing line and increases casting distance as well as accuracy.

The LZR Guides are available in single-foot spinning, double-foot casting, medium-duty spinning/casting, running guides, and even tip tops; light and medium-duty.
