The ALPS™ titanium medium XN stripper guide frame is the slightly heavier frame design to its brother, the ALPS™ titanium light XN stripper guide. There is no other guide to use on your next saltwater or heavy freshwater fly rod build. Any rod 7-12 weight is no match for the strength this guide offers with the added features found only in the ALPS™ titanium medium XN stripper guide. These stripper guides feature cutting edge titanium for 100% corrosion proof and offer up to 40% lighter than competing models. The guide feet are precision ground to facilitate easier wrapping, and are grounded before plating. The ALPS™ titanium medium XN stripper guide is perfect for your next saltwater or heavy freshwater build.
