The end guide on the end of the tip joint, which as 1 explained before is also called a tip, should be a simple ring on a fly rod, but is best if lined with agate as it will cast better and will not harm the line. Those that are bent to one side so that they offer no resistance to the line are best It is not necessary or advisable to have the other guides of agate on a fly rod, but on a bait-casting rod this is advised if you care to go to the expense. Anyway on a bait-casting rod it is generally conceded best to have large guides and tip, while on a fly rod they should be small and light.
