It offers additional power for the casting field as well as that little bit extra for targetting the biggest species that swim around the UK including Skate and Porbeagle sharks.

Match this with a low diameter blank and the ability to handle large baits and big leads at long range it should appeal to Anglers that fish the harshest conditions but still want a rod that is comfortable to use.

Greys GR75S 13ft 3" Beach/Rock Rod 5-7oz We have been waiting for this range of Greys rods to come out for far too long. The blanks are made with a revolutionary technique called Toreon which makes the rods lighter, more responsive and power powerful. So how does it work? TOREON® composite engineering provides a uniform dispersion of nano particles throughout the resin that binds the carbon fibres together. This results in a stronger and lighter material but in no way restricts the action that can be achieved. Working alongside their team of angling consultants, Greys composite engineers have developed what they believe to be the best fishing rods on the market. The brute of the range. This is designed for rock and kept marks but performs superbly in big tides for the bigger species including Tope, Hounds, Conger & Rays Features - Length 13ft 3" Casts 5-7oz 2 piece Adjustable Greys reel seat Super lightweight blank Highlighted tip to see at night Quality rod bag
Anyfish Anywhere 6 & Bait MK2 13ft 4-8oz The original Six&Bait has earned a good reputation amougnst those looking for an easy to use rod which will cope with winter cod fishing and summer smoothhounds. The MkII is built to the same user friendly brief but with a slimmer and lighter blank. The 2 equal section blank design has also been tweaked and now has a parabolic powered butt which blends into a powerful mid section. This allows the angler to load the rod slower and easier which results in improved casting power and feel when playing a fish. The tip is stiff enough to withstand the strong tides which this rod may well be faced with but with the correct level of sensitivity to give good bite indication. They are fitted with Fuji rings throughout adjustable screw winch and diamond wrap shrink. Features - 13ft Casts 4-8oz (6oz optimum) Fuji BNOG rings Adjustable reel seat Diamond wrap shrink tube Available for Multi of Fixed Spool
Century T1200 Salvador Bustos The NEW Century T1200 Salvador Bustos Special edition has been a special manufactured blank in partnership with the multi time World Casting champion. Salvador has used several long distance rods from Century over the years and was getting on really well with the T1200 but he thought his casting would be further helped if Century could reduce the overall length to 14’ 4”, still maintain an equal butt/tip length and ensure it had the same action and power as the existing T1200 blank. Century have set about completing these requirements and decided the world champions blank needed to be celebrated so we have specially printed this model with Salvador signature. The normal anglers amongst us might not be able to cast 300+ yards but it’s good to know we have the exact same proven tools that Salvador uses to set our own personal bests. Features; Length 14ft 4 Casting weight 5-8oz 2 Equall sections Titanium K-Guides Sliding reel seat Etched Stainless steel trim bands upper and lower butt section 3m Reflective tip tape Century Rod Bag
Century HPR Excalibur C Curve 13ft 10" 4-8oz The Excalibur C is a significant step forward in rod dynamics and incorporates exclusive technology – both in the tip and butt section. Century’s well established Autoclave Technology, Gearbox Design and AT-T (anti twist technology) is complimented by a new HPR resin technology primarily in the tip section. The outcome and benefit is a significant reduction in the tip weight, greater toughness and a very fast tip recovery. Designed for mixed to hard conditions – the battle curve and casting action describe a more progressive arc and will suit anglers that are combating tidal streams, boulders, weed and want to deliver a large bait package. The action will suit all casting styles and will particularly favour an OTG or pendulum where timing and power flow can be felt throughout the cast. Anglers who have the skills and can access the energy storage capability in the lower tip and upper butt will enjoy seeing terminal tackle sail away and those that can fully access all the power bands in the Gearbox Design butt will achieve the longest distances. The new HPR resin matrix – blended with high strength carbon fibres in the tip will telegraph bites and retain the design action significantly longer.

Century Excalibur TT 14ft 10" 4-8oz The Excalibur TT is a significant step forward in rod dynamics and incorporates exclusive technology – both in the tip and butt section. Century’s well established autoclave technology and AT-T (anti twist technology) is complimented by a new resin technology primarily in the tip section. The outcome and benefit is a significant reduction in the tip weight, greater toughness and a very fast tip recovery to neutral after the casting cycle. We have perfected this new approach in consultation with Danny Moeskops – a leading caster and angler. The Excalibur TT has been used by Danny to win numerous casting tournaments and he uses the same fundamental design in his tournament rods with some cosmetic differences – as the model available to all anglers. The TT was used by Alessio Massa and Danny to take 1st and 2nd place respectively in World Casting Championships, Greece 2012. A key factor in rod design needs to address the issue of the mass in the tip. If this can be reduced but still retain integrity and sensitivity – the benefits to an angler are very obvious. Reduce the weight of the tip by 25% over comparable rods and you are effectively casting up to 2 to 3 ounces less or conversely able to cast a heavier weight when tactically required, with less physical effort. The rod’s moment of inertia is reduced. For longer range casting it is important to store and release maximum energy and ultimately this has to come from lower down in the rod. If this area can be accessed efficiently by an angler then distance will follow, given a good casting technique and the design of the Excalibur TT will deliver this benefit admirably. The Excalibur TT is designed primarily for hard to mixed ground fishing where you are likely to encounter strong tidal streams or dense weed and kelp. Think rough seas off North East coast, deep Norwegian Fjords, rugged Welsh coastlines and Excalibur TT is the tool to combat these challenging conditions.

Century Kompressor Super Sport 13ft 10" 4-8oz Danny Moeskops had a huge influence in the design of the Kompressor SS. He wanted a rod that would load up with 175 gram plus baited trace, reel brimming with line, 12 turns of 80lb shock leader and send a baited rig effortlessly into big seas and really rough ground. The upper tip retains the same compression curve of the Kompressor S however the lower barrel of the tip and butt is more powerful allowing energy to be stored and released through a series of enhanced Gearboxes. The smoothness of delivery is a revelation and the rod recovers quickly to allow the fast passage of line. The overall compression curve at maximum stretch prescribes a letter C. Deflection of the tip when anchored against a well secured lead and a tight line is indicative even to small taps and nudges. Consider kelp jungles, really tough conditions that anglers encounter on the eastern seaboard of Scotland down to Yorkshire, Northern Scotland with its deep sea lochs, Wales and Cornwall, where local and roving anglers can battle the elements with confidence. The Kompressor SS has been completely evaluated in these venues by anglers who were impressed by the power, lightness and slimness of the rod that can send a baited trace and 200gm lead a very long way. If you are looking for exotic excursions – Danny has tamed Bronze Whaler sharks from the east African coast on this rod.

Century Tip Tornado Sport 13ft 6" 4-8oz The Sport has reached “cult” status in the light of hard won experience and decades of fishing.

The essential tip action design is slightly enhanced to give better feedback and the Gearbox Design butt allows progressive power storage and delivery.
