CRB Rod Guide Kits

CRB Rod Guide Kits

There are a few too many ways to space guides in custom rod building, but none are as quick or as easy as CRB's Guide Spacing Charts. Whether you have Elite, Performance, or Standard CRB Guides, this chart uses the length of your blank to correctly configure your custom guide spacing.

Stop Guessing with CRB Guide Kits

Previously, guide spacing was a manual process that was equally as frustrating as it was time consuming. Like manually spacing out guides, ordering each of these individual guides is a process that was just as bothersome as their spacing on a rod blank.

But now, CRB has simplified each process to both please custom rod builders and ease any confusion. From offering guide sets in complete kits to including their proper spacing in charts, CRB has introduced two great ways to make rod building easier than ever before.


Custom Rod Building Made Easy

Available in spinning or casting, the CRB Guide Kits come in your choice of 3 performance levels: Elite, Performance, and Standard.

The Elite CRB Guides are engineered for a top tier performance. Featuring diamond-polished Zirconia Oxide ceramic insert rings, these Elite Guides are arranged in the concept-style layout to work wonders on the water.

These Elite Guides have the highest tensile strength of all the CRB Guides to bring the ultimate in performance advantages.

The CRB Elite Guides are also available for casting applications!

Below the Elites, CRB offers Performance Guides and Standard Guides to offer the best option for all anglers.

Along with a complete set of guides, each kit includes the general measurements for rod blanks with lengths of either 6'6", 7'0", or 7'6". These measurements make guide spacing easier and also ensure it's done quickly and correctly.

More Precise Guide Spacing

Since CRB already offers 3 levels of guide performance with the general guide spacing included, they recently decided to introduce a more detailed and defined spacing chart according to the specific lengths of your rod blank.

Available for both spinning and casting, these CRB Guide Spacing Charts ease the process with the precise spacing that will dial-in your performance for the ultimate fishing experience.

CRB Spinning Guide Spacing Chart

CRB's Spinning Guide Kit Spacing Chart shows the precise spacing for the guide's level of performance as well as the length of your rod blank.


CRB Casting Guide Spacing Chart

CRB's Casting Guide Kit Spacing Chart features precise spacing based on the level of guide performance and the length of the rod blank.

Although CRB Guide Kits include a great general spacing matrix, CRB's Guide Spacing Chart brings more defined measurements for application specific rod lengths to further dial-in and improve the performance of your custom fishing rod.

Whether your blank's 5'0" or even 10'6", these Guide Spacing Charts help you measure out the spacing for quick, easy guide placement that instantly boosts your blank's performance and your overall fishing experience.
