That particular blank is rated 15-40 lb test. I personally would use the XXNZG guides with matching top top XPPZT08R???. I would probably go 20, 16, 12, 10x2, 08x4. It is hard to compare the two guides as the ALPS guides are made from SS316 and the Fuji is SS304. the SS316 is a much better substrate material than the 304, as it has lees carbon and will last in the harsh salt water environment by at least 3 fold. They are also 2 different styles of guides(ALPS XN vs Fuji N). If you wanted to compare the same styles witch would have about the same weight you would compare the Batson/ALPS XUDZG guides, but these are also made with a better substate material SS316. To have a fair comparison you would have to look at the Batson / Forecast guide UDLG to Fuji NLG. But for the Price of a superior guide why not use the ALPS SS316. Fuji makes a fine product and has been in this industry for many years and I have much respect for them. But know that you do now have a choice in Quality Components.
