About Sea-Guide Premium Guides:
Sea-Guide Premium SS tip models are fitted with high-quality Zirconium (ZrC) rings. Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2), sometimes known as Zirconia, is a white crystalline oxide in it’s purest form. Many people would be familiar with “cubic zirconia” being used as a close substitute for diamonds, which should hint at the high hardness rating and smoothness of the material. In it’s ceramic forms, Zirconia is also favoured for thermal barrier coatings in diesel & jet engines due to it’s low thermal conductivity. The combined properties of diamond-like hardness, ultra-smooth polishability and low thermal conductivity create a superior material for constructing ceramic ring inserts for fishing rod guides.
