I am considering purchasing a Super Surf 10' rod (SS101MS).
After reading a few posts on forums about people reporting cracked guide wraps & noise created from this condition I am a bit concerned.
The reason these people say causes the cracking is the length of the guide foot which is a "casting" type concept guide which is longer than a spinning type. The SS101MS rod having a parabolic action causes the cracking when flexed & a resulting noise / creaking. One person reported the guides being loose even to the touch.
They go onto say, to just ignore this condition & use the rod.
I would really appreciate hearing an explanation of this phenomena from Lamiglas, if in fact it is true & been reported.
I am hoping that this is an non existent issue that I wouldn't have to be concerned with if I purchase this rod model as it doesn't seem to fall in line with a top of the line model.
I own a SS91MHS & love this rod.
Any help would greatly be appreciated.
