The LV Frame design is similar to the “Y” but is roughly 2 to 5 millimeters shorter in height depending on ring size. LV’s are designed to match nicely with SV double foot guides in med/heavy applications when extra strength may be desirable in the first or second reduction guide followed by lighter LV guides in the mid section. A complete train of LV guides has long been one of the most popular spinning rod layouts for medium to light action freshwater and inshore saltwater rods. LV frame reduction trains are often followed by L Frame running guides.
Crossover: Occasionally used on traditional spinning rods calling for 6 running guides
