These rods feature the NEW award winning American Tackle Microwave guide system specifically designed to improve rod and angler performance by adding casting distance, accuracy and line control. The first thing you will notice is the 1st guide Designed to quickly reduce line static and friction as the line passes through the guides.
Once it leaves the first stripper guide, the transition guide then further straightens out the line, making it easy for the remaining running guides to transition the line down the fishing rod.
The running guides pass the line adding almost zero resistance, and the form factor also helps to reduce wind and tangle knots.
Top 5 Reasons To Use The MicroWave System
American Tackle has spent many years tweaking this design to get it perfect. Here are the top 5 reasons why they say you should consider using their MicroWave system.
Increased Casting Distance. Achieved by capturing and directing energy into forward motion maintaining line speed.
Reduction in Fatigue. Less force is required for casting using increased line speed because the blank will load and recover more naturally without inhibition from increased line vibration.
Increased Casting Accuracy. Less force is required for casting using increased line speed because the blank will load and recover more naturally without inhibition from increased line vibration.
Increased Lure Range of Rod. Using controlled energy, lighter & heavier lure weights can be used without rod blank materials compensating for lost efficiency.
Wind Knot Tangling Elimination. Converts “pushing line energy” through a guide ring into “pulling line energy” preventing line from traveling beyond the larger stripper guide ring not allowing it to override the frame creating wrapping or knot formation. “And if that isn’t enough we utilize our brand new Snag-less running guides out to the tip. Why use a stripping guide that’s tangle free when you can use a guide that all but eliminates tangles and then employs snag-less running guides for added insurance.”
We would add a sixth reason; it flat out looks really cool too!
