I have only one micro guide rod and really cannot tell much difference. And as said, if you want to use a leader the knot
has trouble getting thru the top guides. So I mostly fish with this rod with straight braid and no leader.
Casting accuracy may be a little better. But switching back and forth from micro to regular may also throw your
accuracy off a little. Won't be buying any more.
