Okay, one last question...
Does anyone think that there are obvious or definite benefits to using TiCH guides vs. the "standard" chrome-plated stainless steel guides? I'm interested in whether or not I'll really see any difference in performance or use over the life of the rod. I've been using TiCH and REC guides up until now, but I'm beginning to wonder if all of the hype about the extra durability and slickness of the expensive guides really means anything in the real world. Thanks again, guys, I appreciate it...

And by the way, what are the thoughts on REC guides? Yes, they feel a lot lighter, but look so much cheaper than traditional guides.
