    Does anyone know how the Team Catfish and catfish Safari rod guides hold up with braided line.
    How can you tell if the guides can take braided,or mono

    Its all about the ring inserts

    silcon carbide, titanium coated zirconia, duralite and nanolite will take on any super braids I know of,,

    not sure of Halide and stainless, wire, guides with black shock ring with ceramic rings, Alum oxide etc...
