Other than the wire boat guides how come there appears to be no guide maker that makes a size 14 stripper guide. There are times when I want to use a smaller than called for guide.

At some point there are just too many sizes. And, the more sizes available the more sizes rod builders will tend to use, thinking that they have to go through each size to make a gradual reduction for the line (not necessary.) So you find that sizes increase by half or one size in the very smallest guides, then go up by 2 sizes until you reach about size 12, then start moving up by 4 or 5 sizes each until you reach about a 30, and then progress up by 10 from there on up.
