    I am wondering how Carboloy roller guides and braided lines such as Spectra get along. Does anyone have any experience with this combo? Any problems with the braid getting off the rollers and getting stuck between the roller and the frame?

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Well I'm not sure about Carboloy guides, however, I have a PacHawk pole that I use 80lb braid with, the end roller tends to eat the braid quite often. I still use it though, I just keep and eye on it to make sure it doesn't get hungry, when I cast with I just make sure it hasn't gotten sucked between the roller and frame. When I cast it never gets sucked in, only if I'm reeling in from bottom fishing it'll get sucked up, once every few casts.

    TL: DR- Just make sure it isn't in the frame before you cast, otherwise it's fine.
