Re: Will textured fly line hurt your guides?

With the rods I have seen in my rod builders shop having guides redone, I think I'll stay away from the textured line. Maybe it is I'm cheap, why tear up guides and then have to pay to rebuild a rod.

Re: Snowbee or?

bmbailes, I think in time I would be fine with the CGT as well. I just need to get my feet wet and then look at it again. I do believe it is a rod that you love or hate it.
