The Excalibur range comprises 3 distinct models and all feature the most advanced materials and processing technology ever used in a high performance surfcaster. A significant reduction in tip weight delivers increased performance and enhanced sensitivity whilst new methods of blending carbon fibre enhances energy storage and consequent release into tip speed. The recovery in the tip is very fast to allow smooth line flow between Fuji K guides. All models have been evaluated over a full season on demanding venues and have delivered quantified results and success.
Century Excalibur Braid rods have been specifically designed to complement the unique advantage of braid. The length, phased action and low down grunt thanks to Century’s unique combination of carbon, resin systems and manufacturing processes will handle the lightest bass to toughest conger or tope.
Next generation sea, river, estuary rod designed for fixed spool use and excels when loaded with braid. This incredibly light and low diameter 3 piece rod is well balanced yet deceptively powerful and furnished with the best hardware including Titanium guides as standard.
There have probably been more 300 yard recognised and officiated casts on TT-R than any other rod ever made. The TT-R has been used to create all the official World distance casting records on 100gram, 125gram, 150gram and 175 gram. A superb rough ground fishing rod used by competition anglers to win numerous big match results. Improved and refined over many years of experience and design feedback featuring AT-T (Anti Twist Technology), Gearbox Design and Autoclave Technology.
A classic in-shore rod for medium range applications and a derivative of a highly successful rod made by Century for East coast USA specialists.
A close cousin of TT-R featuring a sub 1” diameter butt section and similar performance with a slightly slower action and given a controlled casting arc, a late load and a hit with everything you have and the E1000 jumps to life to take on fast tidal rips, deep shelving water, rough ground and heavy seas.
The Tip Tornado started a trend in the early ’90′s which has progressively evolved into today’s complex yet easy to use – low diameter rod. A low profile rod has the edge in transferring energy in the cast. There is a time in every cast where the bait accelerates from the launch point – that moment when the rod feeds back vital information to you and the compression and release are harmonised with directional control. The Tip Tornado has always delivered this vital requirement with its unique action. The design gives better stability in gusty conditions. The original spirit of the Tip Tornado design has been retained but advances in technology over the decades has enabled us to make the latest generation of Tip Tornado rods even better.

The Kompressor range has been proven over and over again as well as constantly improved since the first designs created a big surprise on casting courts and match circuits. Kompressor are characterised by a smooth easily controlled casting action for all styles – overhead, off the ground or pendulum. The Kompressor WR300 was the first rod ever to cast over 300 yards at a UKSF Grand Prix – yet all Kompressors have highly desirable rough to mixed ground fishing qualities. Kompressors are highly rated not just by us but by the endorsement of thousands of sea anglers who enjoy the benefits owning a model from this range.
The Carbon Metals represent a specialist group of rods with a distinctive “carbon metal” upper butt section. Each rod has a proven track record and with multiple awards, tournaments and match success – they are established workhorses for an angler looking for a rod that will deliver performance.
