The XR Series stand-up rods have been on the top as one of best selling models for the last 15 years. The latest version, now distinguished as the Pro Series displays one of the coolest guides that ALPS has ever created. The ALPS RX - M (medium wind-on) roller guide has a .25 inch clearance, yet still maintains a lower profile and weight to make them extremely functional on fast tapered stand-up rods. This Guide, like the other RX models have the recessed roller to prevent any line chaffing between the roller and the cage. This is a key feature when using braid. The chassis for the guide is Aluminum, and all attachment hardware / roller is 316 SS.
