    WOW.
    Is all I have to say.
    And another thing, I like the colors.
    And, I like the new Salty Dawg Rods logo on the bottom rod pic.
    And, I like beaver. I use their pelts for making garments, tying flies, and flossing my teeth.

    Looking at the MAXIMUS report on their 300 pounder, I'd say they needed these rods last week. There's not much left of the fore-grip on that rod. Nice work as always Bill.

    Those are some beefy guides. What kind of guides are those? Cool looking rods.

    I belive these are some proto OEM Rail (Dawg) Blanks Bill has been working with. It does make sense for someone like Bill, with both fishing and rod building skills , to pair up with a Mfg to produce a unique product (blank) exclusive to SDR.

    I believe those are PacBay BBSG guides. They are a copy of the Fuji USG guides that have been discontinued. The USG have a stonger frame than the HBSG guides. One problem is they are bridged and will not flex like the HB type guides. The rings are availabe in Sic and Hialloy. They are good guides.

    You are incorrect, they are not Pac Bays, They are Batsons

    S-Dawg is correct. These are Batson guides. Pac Bay makes a similar one, but not as high quality.

    I was a big fan of the old USG Fuji's as well, but you're correct about the flexing factor. Back when I fell in love with the USG's they were the best boat rod guide on the market before crossing over to rollers.

    So many options out there now days. That's a great thing.........yes?

    Allright Bill...Those look killer...Keith and crew will be super stoked....Even the Rail boss handles are shredding....Not like its easy to keep the handle exactly in that 8 inch area.....

    we gotta share a rail pretty soon here.... Hope you kill it on your trip.

    The Pac Bay guides are stronger than the Fuji HB guides...could you please provide the test data on that? The Pac Bay guides are bridged...and do not flex...and yet the guide/ring is more durable?

    I was searching for rods with USG or BSUL guides for stand-up rods and found this thread (sorry if Im posting on al old thread), let me say that rod looks really good wearing those guides, but I havent seen many rods lately using those kind of guides like BSUL or the ones from PacBay, seems like the trending is using XHN alps and HB fuji guides for tuna / sharks rods nowadays.

    does any one have some pics of rods with this BSUL guides?
