    I saw this guides on a broken phenix megalodon popping rod
    My friend broke the rod 1ft from the tip, I installed a new tip and salavaged this guides, I though they were ALPS XHN Ti and zirconia but they dont have the alps and s6 molded on the, instead they have a sign SG SD or something below the ring
    On the Last two pics one is ALPS XHN más other one is idéntical but no marks

    Anyone have an idea of the maker ?

    I remember seeing a lot of those on Ebay. Friend ordered some. Alps knockoffs basically from what I remember.

    They look ok, went to the trouble to stamp the size on them for what that's worth

    They’re Chinese guides I forget what they’re called. The also make Guides with SIC inserts because they don’t respect ip laws.

    Yep they look really nice
    They have a nice groove marks on both feet to secure the thread just like the fuji HB guides and the size stamped (thanks Sheridan) if they are chinese knockoffs they went a bit ahead on them
