What kink of eyes do they use on their rods?

I believe they use these, BTAG Casting is a quality basic guide by Pacific Bay. I just replaced the guides on two rods for a customer last week.

They use TFO proprietary Tactical guides, machined stainless steel inserts are super hard chrome anodized then staged into a chromium impregnated stainless frame. This is saight from the book.

They use the kind that fall out clap

I still love the rods but I take them to reeltime to fix them..... Though I'm sure TFO will give you another rod if you pay $30 I think.....I really get used to mine so when the guides fail I just get them fixed with better guides

GTS rods are topped with TFO’s proprietary Tactical Series guides, machined stainless steel inserts are super-hard chrome anodized then swaged into a chromium-impregnated stainless frame. What does this all mean? Super hard, super slick, saltwater safe and no more lost fishing time due to lost inserts...and they’re 30% lighter than standard SiC guides.

Every rod in my boat is a TFO, I still have and use 2 of the original Signature Series and the rest are the Tactical series. I have never had a guide insert come out or any other problem with the guides.
