I actually have steel rods drilled out to reduce nose weight.

So, you prefer lighter nose for faster swing or transition?

Stainless  in Open , tungsten is for Limited .

Same but carry extra SS rod with Limited gun cause Tungsten will break sooner or later

EGW is a Great Company .. also try out an Infinity Tungsten.. that's what I use in all of mine, yet to break 1 in 4 years of using them.

Hello: I have used tungsten, stainless, steel and aluminum guide rods. I am just using STI and EGW steel ones and Briley aluminum ones right now. I didn't like the heavy feel of the tungsten guide rods and also not knowing when they will go shooting out the end when they break. Thanks, Eric

Yes.  I found that with a heavier nose, I tend to 'overrun' the A zone during the transition and get more C's.

Is that big of a difference in swing and transition
