Anticipation was mixed with anxiety as Guideline introduced their new 4-piece models of the LPXe. Were they going to be accepted as well as the 3-piece best-sellers had been for years? Now we know… these new rods have won best in test in the world’s largest fly fishing magazine for both the 9’ 5-wt and the 15’ 10/11-wt models - the best acknowledgements one can receive. The LPXe series continues to bring extraordinary value for money. New for 2009 is a 10’ 6-wt, suitable for reservoir rainbows, sea trout and grilse.
