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 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.

The 3 models in the range are all designed using the same well researched and tested design principles. The 12-20lb is light and super sensitive, the 20-40lb designed for stronger fish and 20-50lb with a more powerful upper tip and slightly more powerful mid zone will cater for the larger specimens.
