I'm thinking about buying one of these rods. I looked on the Shakespeare website to compare the different models. I believe I want the 7' MH Casting rod. This particular rod comes in two versions, model# BWC 2202 comes with heavy duty stainless steel guides, and model# BWC/AO 2202 comes with aluminum oxide guides. For you guys that use these rods, I would like to hear your opinions on which rod you would choose and for what reasons. Keep in mind that I use braided line if that makes any difference. Thanks in advance!
