Introducing the MicroWave Guide System by the American Tackle Company. Inventor Doug Hannon also known as "The Bass Professor" partnered with American Tackle to conceive, design and manufacture the perfect "line control" system for spinning rods. The system addresses coiling-memory issues with monofilament but it's ideal for braided lines and really something that has to be felt and seen to be believed. It provides noticeable advantages that standard guide trains cannot by combining science, practical application and custom rod building principles.

Many long hours of theory, design & physical testing has resulted in possibly the most dynamic guide train developments to date.

BDOutdoors stated: "The new Microwave Guide from American Tackle has a small guide within a larger guide to help avoid wind knots and give you a longer cast. We tested it out and will confirm that it works."
Microwave Line Control System Comparison Demonstration

When a MWG casting comparison is properly given, nobody can deny the effects instantly felt & visually seen using the MWG system rods. However the official AT demonstration is not required to reproduce the same results. Comparative rods and a few key points of interest are all that are needed for anyone to conduct their own evaluation.

For more information on how the demonstrations are conducted, refer to these step by step instructions and Ben Stein's MicroWave guide demo video below.
