CTS Jewel 'Affinity X' Graphite Fly Rod Blank
8'6" 5wt 4pc design & includes a cloth rod sock.
Fast action, lightweight and versatile, the CTS Affinity X has deserved its place as the most popular carbon fly rod blank in the CTS collection.
The Affinity pedigree is unmatched – it’s the CTS cornerstone fly rod series, as a result of its superior design, engineering and materials. A single VeroCore™ helical spiral is at the core of each 100% uni-directional carbon fiber (graphite) Affinity X fly rod blank.
This type of structure is regarded as the most effective way of maintaining cross-section stability during bending, therefore creating a fly rod that is more responsive and more sensitive. This is not only apparent when casting, but also when fighting a fish and even when setting the hook. Feel the difference with a CTS carbon fly rod blank.
The Affinity X has a powerful butt section, but balanced perfectly with a delicate tip area. This creates a blank that loads smoothly and quickly into a solid mid area, resulting in a fly rod that is ideal for delicate situations, while maintaining precision, casting authority and power when needed. This is a high-performance carbon fly rod blank with exceptional recovery, that exceeds at creating tight loops and quick casts.
Made in the CTS factory in Auckland New Zealand.
