Snake Brand, Inc. is pleased to announce their patented Universal Guide, a precision formed snake guide featuring a concave radius on the bottom of the foot — an industry first. This breakthrough design results in guides that are self-orienting and self-aligning. The new Universal Guides are constructed of high quality stainless steel, and feature the same exceptional quality that has made Snake Brand, Inc. the market leader in the development of light wire snake guides. The feet are consistent in length; they have tapered ends, and fit the contour of a round fly rod blank. This equals less time spent grinding, filing, twisting, bending, and wrapping. To fly rod manufacturers, the importance of labor savings, quality, and performance cannot be overstated, and Snake Brand’s new Universal Guide is the answer.
