I will ask about the replacement AGS guides.

As far as I know, the line generally comes in packs of 5 or 6 spools, but I have never seen bulk spools. I will ask about that, also.

Anti-spinner bias based on line twist. Those genuinely don't twist line? I'll order some tonight.

Replacement guides are available. If replacing a guide on an AGS rod you can order by guide number, if for use on another rod, order by size.

Clever design, built in power swivel and offset bodies. Some of my happiest fishing memories are flinging spinners on the Boise river in the 90's....but the line twist was a bear. These Smith spinners are the real deal, fished them lots on mono, no line twist.

Oh man, those look great. I swear I have a USDM spinner with an offset body like that, but I cant seem to lay hands on it atm. But the built in swivel is great, I have tried adding them to spinner before with very mixed results, so a built in one is huge.
