The Century Excalibur braid boat is built with HPR carbons making it lighter, more sensitive and still retain bags of power making it better than any other rod on the market. If your wanting the best rod. Here it is. The Century Excalibur Braid rods have a very supple tip, a slow progressive increase in power in the mid section to accommodate the non elastic properties of braid and the power then increases rapidly in the butt. The design principle separates the rod into 3 distinct zones: the tip zone cushions the braid and protects light hook holds, the mid zone develops a subtle increase in stiffness that controls the fish during the main lift phase and the final zone delivers leverage to control a specimen fish diving back for cover in snags. These 3 zones work collectively to bring the benefits in using braid together and the transition between the zones is seamless. The carefully considered guide spacing and sizes allow a smooth transition of braid through the guides even when maximum down force is applied and are selected to last many years. • Length 2.55m (8’4”) 2 pieces: Short butt – Long tip for design integrity. • Guides – Fuji • Guides: single leg intermediates and double leg lower 2 guides: 9 guides + tip guide. • Fuji DPS Black 20 reel seat. • JSR joint grips and stainless steel trim band. • JSR lower handle and rubber butt cap • Black EVA grip with flat upper for braid control • Multi modulus carbon construction: advanced resin system -Autoclave cured for action retention • Anti Twist Technology (AT-T) • Petrol blue translucent colour blank with metallic marine blue and Royal blue wrappings.

Sunset Wave Master Elite Shooter Surf Rods This new range of Wave Master rods from Sunset sticks to the design principles which made the original range so popular in the UK but with a few changes to make them even better than the older models. Firstly if you are wanting a 3 piece as an all round UK shore rod you can't really go far wrong with these. They offer a fast action blank with additional power in the butt and mid sections allowing you to effectively use 6oz weights regularly and holds enough power so you can use 7 and 8oz weights if needed. The tip section is really where it sets itself apart from just about any other rod on the market. It's stiff and responsive when sat in the tide yet magically comes alive to small bites. We aren't quite sure how they have achieved this but we are VERY VERY happy about it as it gives you the best of both worlds. For the strength of these continental style rods they are surprisingly light with the 14ft coming in at 540g and the 15ft at 590g. Although they aren't the very lightest their power to weight ratio is hard to beat. A nice upgrade from the old version is this one features Fuji K guides allowing you to use either multiplier or fixed spool with any type of line/leader. Casts

The Diablo Travel has been designed for intermediate tropical fishing, that would be casting lures from the shore and boats for species such as Trevally, Snappers, Jacks and Cuda to 40lb easily.

Tenryu Super Mix Evo Lure Rods Ultimate Fishing and Tenryu have revamped the classic Super Mix, giving it new Fuji Titanium K Series anti-Tangle guides. Along with new decals, the Super Mix looks stunning and is set to remain as the leading rod for the modern lure angler. Since its release the Super Mix has simply blown anglers away with its versitality, from twitching small hard lures to working soft plastics and even vertical jigging from the boat, they are simply the one rod many anglers reach for. These "all round" lure rods have been specifically designed for soft plastic and plug fishing. The features that have gone into these rods have come straight from the requirements of the Ultimte Fishing guides in France. This one rod can be used in so many situations it is often all they need for hard, soft and vertical fishing. The blank is two unequal sections, the tip section is longer than the butt. This makes the spigot joint further down the blank, allowing a more througher action of the rod. The spigot is reversed, the male part is on the tip section and the female on the butt. This means the male part is surrounded by a very thick walled female butt section, this gives immense power in the joint. The action is medium fast, which is perfect for diving lures and soft plastics. When twitching and bouncing soft plastics back towards you from the shore, or vertically from a boat, the blank is forgiving, allowing you to keep contact with the lure.
