Any rod carrying the CTX name means that Free Spirit have tried to apply as much of their experience and technology to the blank design and fittings as possible but keep prices to a minimum and the CTX Power Feeders are no exception.
A combination of 40t and 30t carbon with Bi-Axis carbon tape gives a light yet strong and responsive blank. The emphasis is on steady loading of the blank to build up power consistently and this produces the longest and most accurate casts with relative ease without ‘exploding’ pellet filled feeders or open ends. A shorter quiver tip section helps this since the joint diameter of the top section where it meets the quiver tip is much smaller meaning the elimination of flat spots and better power transfer through this area and down the blank and also better fish playing without ‘lock-up’ – especially important with light lines and where elasticated feeders are not allowed.
Free Spirit fit the optimum number of anti-frap guides with large diameter butt guide and then dropping quickly in size to cone the lines down thus helping to eliminate crack-offs and aid distance casting whilst the handle is finished with ‘A’ Grade cork, stainless steel fittings and a Fuji VSS reel seat. Handle lengths are longer than the commercial feeder range to provide greater leverage for long casts but still manageable for playing fish close in.
Supplied with 3 quiver tips in carbon to suit the action and bite detection required in a pouch style rod bag that will accommodate rods with reels attached and rod top and toe protectors and lead band.
