Fuji MNSG, LNSG, NSG?

Between the Fuji MNSG, LNSG, and NSG which have the lowest ring height using a size 16 for example? Meaning, which sits closest to the blank?

Is there an online guide of the Fuji ring heights available? I haven't been able to make heads or tails of the Fuji website.

Thanks!

Thanks Anthony!

So what I gather from the measurements, the MNSG and LNSG are the same height.

But what's the difference between the MNSG and LNSG guides?

Thanks again!

Hi Will,

The major difference is the foot print. MNSG has a broader base. From toe to toe, the width for size 16 is 34.7mm and its footprint is 10.0mm as opposed to LNSG's width of 32.5mm and foot print 9.0mm. The weight is not given in Fuji's catalog but I am very sure LNSG is slightly lighter than MNSG. Therefore, my preference is for MNSG to be used for salt water and LNSG for fresh water.

You should be able to get Fuji's specification at matagi.com.jp.

Cheers,

Anthony Lee

Anthony, good info. I weighed the same frames, different ring materials, here's what I got:

BLNAG 16 = .06oz
TLNSG 16 = .04
BMNAG 16 = .08
BNLG 16 = .085
TNSG 16 = .06

Will,

ICMNSG is a good alternative and I use them for most of my in-shore casting and saltwater rods. I have used them for the last 4-5 years and they can stand up to the elements.
