like the title says. with Fuji getting rid of black and chrome frames, it seems like I am looking elsewhere and trying other brands these days. Seems like alps are popular on here and wondering if anyone is using the lxn frames on 20 lb set ups. Are they too light?

I used mxn’s on my last 20# rod. Wrapping another 20# with mxn’s.

From what I found out Fuji had to change their paint ,,hope they come back soon..

The new finish I saw has what looks to be a clear coating over the painted one ..

The LXN's should be fine for 20lb but if you wanted to be safe the MXN aren't much bigger or heavier. I'd also consider the MXN Lowrider guides depending on what you're doing, I've been liking them a lot for faster action blanks.

I haven't seen these before. They look awesome, and very similar to the fuji MN that I generally use. Will probably end up ordering a set of both the LXN's and lowrider MXN and see which set up I like more.
