No, just googled them at Mud Hole. Recently put new guides on a rod and used Snakebrand snake guides. I considered single footed but decided to retain the rods original look since it's kind of a classic (at least to me).
The micro guides look interesting through, light. I know there are people on this forum using single footed guides; don't know if micro guides are synonymous to single footed but the micro guides on Mud Hole are single footed.

Yeah, I buy a lot from them. Just thinking about putting them on my 5'2" 3wt that I am building. Have not seen any on a UL.

It seems like I have four rods that really qualify as ultralight. Two have Fuji single-foot guides and the other two have similar guides. Let's see, there are some four more heavier rods that have more conventional snake guides (for now). Fuji has a new material for guides called Torzite that sounds interesting, but quite pricy at this point, something like an average of $10 apiece, and they look a little heavy. But there are some good reviews about them.

I also like the possibilities of using a spinning reel occasionally, which could partially explain why my preference for single-foots.

If you're building a rod stictly for use with fly lines, there is honestly little difference that I have perceived in performance between single-foot and snake guides. But if you're building a combination rod, single-foot guides are the better route to take.
