Hi, I'm thinking of getting a Lew's Custom Lite fishing rod. The only thing that kind of worries me are the guides. I haven't really seen many complaints on them. Here's the guide description:

Titanium Oxide Guides precisely span each blank to maximize the attributes of each rod, and also provide increased casting performance and durability.

So what I'm wondering is are Fuji Alconite Guides (for example found on the Daiwa Tatula rod) that much better? Should I get the Daiwa Tatula instead? Thank you!!

I’m sure just about any Fuji guide will perform fine.  Titanium is super light and so has that advantage.  I use Alconite guides on the rods I build for myself because they are very durable and the cost is not significantly more than Fuji’s lower grade guides when considering the total cost of all a rod’s components.  That said, I wouldn’t choose or reject a rod based only on the guide materials.  The blank action, weight, and balance are the more important qualities to me.
