I have a couple of 15Kg rds that need new guides

I want to use Silicon carbide or something equivalent, as I believe that Aluminium Oxide and Silicon Nitride will cut out over time when using braid.

I don't like the Gun Smoke frames that Silicon Carbide guides come with.

So what are my options for a trolling rod guide that won't cut out when used with Braid?

Alconite won't cut with braid, I was under the impression that Sillicon Nitride wouldn't either?

R A Conaghan's in Auckland have Hb guides in the IC finish - almost impossible to find elsewhere and look awesome. They were short of one size when I was last there but give them a call.
If you want Alps you can order direct from Exclusive Tackle.
SiN are perfect for braid
