    first letter = P = type of material/metal
    P = polished
    C= chrome
    etc...

    2nd/ 3rd letter frame design = KW
    LC = long cast/ low riders double foot
    KW = tangle free double foot
    etc..

    4th letter = S = type of ceramic insert
    S = silicone caebide
    T = torzite
    etc..

    last letter T/G = only T and G on last letter
    T = tiptop
    G = guide

    Not necessarily a pass.
    all 4 are likely polished stainless steel frames......... based on "P" & age.
    all are SiC
    1st listed is only code for the tip ( as above )

    for future reference................
    1st letter B=Black coated guide instead of P or C

    2 frame options there.................Titanium or polished stainless..........either is good for salt water .
    Looks like polished stainless to me .............ring might be alconite or SiC...........either are great for the job.

    These Fuji LC Lowrider guides were originally designed for surfcasting. So made for saltwater.

    The black & Silver frames are being deleted by Fuji.............Alconite too. The replacement is Fazlite rings & smokey grey or white frames. Fazlite rings have a dark blue tint.

    This is a shame as black guides & frames went with wraps of every colour in the rainbow. Grey just doesn't complement wrap colours as good.
