Fuji CC Tip Tops

Hey guys,

Does anyone know if Fuji plans on releasing the F or FC guides in the new CC Silver coating? Right now, it seems the only option for matching the whole guide train is to go with the LG micro spinning top. I wouldn't mind using the MN, but Mudhole only has it in 6+ tube sizes with 8, 10, or 12 ring sizes.

LG was widely expanded in 2017 as the "go to" top for most K-series builds as well as MN, LN and LY layouts. Fuji now offers it in 8 frame/ring configurations that go fro size 4mm to 8mm with tube sizes up to 8. LG has a nice short footprint and widely flared frame legs for excellent strength and tangle free performance. For Titanium TORZITE®, T2 (dark grey Titanium) SiC or Titanium SiC tops choose the KG frame.

Here's the LG listing that appears in our current catalog (as a really bad phone pic jpg image)

I see that in the catalog now. I think my confusion was that Mudhole lists it as a micro spinning top. The catalog doesn't reference anywhere that it's spinning specific, and it lists it as suitable for both NGC and KR builds. Looks like Mudhole may need to update their description. Thanks!

The LGs will work well for both spinning and casting. However, I do like the brace on the back of the tip top (as the FC) for casting. Supposedly the LG is a more tangle free design.
