I am not talking about single foot wired guide. I am talking about single foot ringed guide. The foot of these are thicker and with many bones above 10 pounds, tarpons in the 100+ I have never had a guide stripped off my blank. I do not have your experience, but mine is funded on about 50 days of intense fishing per year.
Also, it is good to secure the single foot guide with 2-3 wraps above the guide.

Ringed guides put the line away form the blank and wire is not as smooth as zirconium or SIC.
