What is a turbo guide on a Fishing Rod?

These guides are used for conventional reels as well but most commonly seen on spinners. These guides are great because of they extremely simple and help adapt to changes in the direction of the fishing line when fighting a fish. 

Why Ceramic?

The main reason for using ceramic is to almost eliminate any type of major pitting to the guides. Ceramic does not corrode like other materials commonly found on fishing rods like aluminum. Knowing these characteristics, ceramic works extremely well with the fishing line by providing a smooth surface in all conditions.
