The low frame features “pinched” wings like the cradle frame, but the wing height is minimal relative the feet of the frame, so there is very little space between the guide ring and the rod. These are beautiful guides, yet are rarely used except for restoration work. If you’re making a new rod, yet you want the aesthetics to really call out, “age, history, & wisdom,” then use a low frame guide and wind on lots of intermediate wraps. Approximately 1.590” long and 0.530” tall from the bottom of the feet to the top of the ring.
