Guess what got in stock sooner than expect?
The RainShadow Stand-Up RSU rod blanks are now in stock in the warehouse.
Possibly, it all depends how many request an XN.
MXN is our best seller from that series, so that was done first.
Looking at their specs yes looks like the LowRider MXN is very comparable to the MN's from Fuji. Other than the size 8's our guides are a bit...
For this new set of guides, we took our popular MXN and F-Guide designs and lowered the height to bring line closer to the rod blank. This reduces...

You can use the same guide spacing that’s in the spiral wrap blueprint, it should work just fine. Always make sure to do a static test.
It’s the exact same blank. Only reason we put it under RCJB as well is because you all in CA are so familiar with that model line and the RTP’s...
