Braid line safe for line guides?

Recommended Posts

Is it safe to use braid line for Fuji Alconite guides?  I've got St. Croix Avid and Falcon Original series rods that I would like to try using Fireline Crystal for crankbaits and other baits.  A friend of mine told me that braid can eat into the guides.  Is that true for line under 20lb test?

Yes, Alconites are rated to handle braid.  (any # test)  Actually it's the lighter braid that is worse, the smaller diameter is harder on a guide.  Alconites are fine for your application.

your friend probably didnt have high quality fuji guides either. i have lightning rods and ugly sticks, the braid eats into them because they only have stainless steel, no alconite.

you will be absolutely fine with braid on an aivd. i use braid on my avid when i fish worms/jigs. :)

Thanks everyone!  I wanted to make sure it wouldn't void my warranty or cause my guides to become chewed/frayed.
