Review of the T1000 carried out by Sea Angler magazine can be viewed here

The Eliminator T1000 is built and designed for fishing demanding conditions – large boulders, kelp and fast tidal streams. Initially it feels very powerful but this is deceptive because it bends and recovers gradually to release this power smoothly from the middle power bands in the butt: adjust your timing, control the flow and T1000 delivers smoothness over all casting styles. The low rod diameter, the ability to handle large baits and big weights at long range will appeal to anglers that fish the hardest conditions multiplier or fixed spool, braid or monofilament and still want a rod that is comfortable to use.

The technical specification is huge and well researched. Century has incorporated HPR resin technology, Autoclave Technology and for the first time 45/45 STF (spread tow fabric) to improve AT-T anti-twist. The STF surfaces at the upper butt and lower tip and compliments the Anti-Twist Technology incorporated throughout the rod. STF comes straight out of Formula One and all cars use this material extensively in the chassis for performance. Fitted with the robust yet super light Titanium guides as standard keeps excess weight to a minimum. This rod includes more premium features as standard than any other out on the market.

The Eliminator T1000 makes a perfect tool for flat plane casters but it is capable of being easily mastered by a high swinger or someone who prefers an overhead thump. It obliterates heavy ground fishing and rips through kelp – but it still has enough give in the tip to show bites and prevent hooks pulls. Although the blank is powerful, reeling in fish is a pleasure because the rod gives excellent feedback and transmits the thuds of fighting fish – delivering full control over boulders, reefs, weed and in strong tidal rips.

Century factory finished beach rods in 2020 will be fitted with American Tackle Titanium K guides and a Anti Tangle tip guide. We believe these are the best guides on the market to partner with our high performance blanks and make your built rod lighter and more responsive. The K guide shape is automatic disentangling guide frame and is suitable for both multiplier and modern fixed spool reels. Remember to minimise line twist – one of the principal reasons for line coiling using fixed spool reels - by paying regular attention to this aspect. Please consult your reel manufacturer or dealer for detailed advice and guidance.
