Both titanium frame SIC guides and recoil guides flex better which can be an advantage, and SIC guides are harder than alconite guides.
The titanium framed SiC guides that were on last years model were much better but they also cost more so I'm sure BPS went to stainless steel framed alconite guides to save money.
FYI: The rod price is lower this year and the cheaper guides probably play a big part in that.
