NRX Guides

I have a NRX 893C JWR that has a broken recoil guide. It is the third down from the tip, but they all look to be the same size.

Can someone tell me what to buy to replace it?

Thanks.

I believe it is a Recoil Black Pearl ''Spinning" guide #6 but to be safe I would also order a #5 Micro. If you are ordering thread also it is #413 Prowrap color fast.

Do recoil guides use the same sizing chart as regular guides? If so I found a size chart and according to it the guide I need is either a 4.0 or 4.5. Now I need to figure out where to buy it. Mudhole wants more to ship it than the price of the guide. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the recommendation on the thread but this rod is green, not blue. What color and size thread would that be?

Thank you.

Edit: I finally got through to customer service and they are going to send me a guide.

zelmo, sorry I just assumed it was a blue rod. Not sure what the green color is but don't think a small mismatch will be as noticeable with the green as it is with the blue. Glad you were able to get the guide, and yes to order just a small item like that, the shipping is often equal or more than the item.

Good luck

I don’t know how recoil does there sizing but based on fuji I’d say your looking at a size 6
