Taking advantage of the know-how Guideline have collected through the years with their Triple Density lines, they are happy to introduce a totally new Multi Tip concept consisting of Dual Density Floating - Float/Sink 2 and Intermediate/Sink 3 Bodies.

4D Distance bodies are made for those who fish longer rods or prefer longer heads. The 4D Distance bodies have extended lengths and are also available in heavier weights than the standard 4D Bodies. This means they are perfectly suited for use with rods from 13' and all the way up to 17’. Generally 4D Distance is 1,5 metres longer than the standard 4D bodies. Total head lengths with 4D Tip varies from 12m/39ft to 14,5m/47,5ft depending of sink rate/wt and choice of tip length. In comparison the standard 4D bodies have lengths from 11m/36ft to 12,5m/41ft. As a general guide they recommend 15' tips for rod lengths up to 14ft, for longer rods both 15' and 18' are suitable depending on your favoured length/weight.

The 4D Distance bodies are built on Guidelines Direct Contact low stretch cores with only 6% stretch, all bodies have super strong 42lbs cores that will make you fish with confidence targeting Big Steelhead or giant Salmon alike. All lines are fitted with colour-coded sleeves in the front towards the connection with the Tips. They also have ID printing in the back ends for easy identification. They are fitted with small, coated loops with the industries strongest and most reliable, reinforced sleeves. Produced from environmentally friendly materials and featuring strong Polyurethane coatings.

4D Bodies and Tips are sold individually, so you can mix and match according to your preferences. The 4D system excels when used with the 4D Double Density Tips with tapers and performance optimised for the 4D Bodies. All in all, there are 7 different Tips from Dual Density Floating to Super Fast Sinking S5/S8 to choose from. All tips are colour coded for an easy match with the 4D body. If you fancy a more skagit style approach, these bodies also work superb together with Guidelines 15’ T-Tips.

FITTING GUIDE AND ADVICE

Taking accurate body measurements is one of the keys to a great fit; all you need is a tape measure.
While it's easiest to have someone else take your measurements, you can also do it yourself.
Stand in front of a mirror to make sure you have the tape measure in the right position. Ideally, you should be measured wearing only your underwear or close fitting clothing.
Because the body is made of soft tissue, it can be a bit difficult to know exactly how tight to pull the tape around the body.
The tape should be a bit snug, but not tight-it should not "dig in" or make an indentation in the body. It should not be loose, either! Just wrap the tape around the area of the body being measured and hold it in place. You should be able to put a finger behind the tape, but no more than that.
To measure the length of the foot, stand with your back against a wall and put the foot so the heel touches the wall. Then take a measurement at the position of your longest toe. Do this with a bare foot.
Please note! All measurements are presented in centimeters and are measures of your own body, not the garment.
These charts are only a guide to find the size you need. Trying them on, in real life, is always the best way to find a perfect fit.
The fit of fishing clothing is not only about size of your body. It also comes down to personal preferences of how loose or slim you want them.
If you often fish during the cold weather season and have the need for extra base and fleece-layers, remember to allow for this when you choosing your  size.
