This is best suited to Texas rigging, weightless worm and presentations in clean to fairly heavy ground across a wide weight and line range. It will handle plugs to the rated specification with ease but is more in tune with crank-baits rod and minnow’s up to around 145mm. It has incredible balance that will work with reels in the 2000 – 3000 without modification and can handle pitching, flipping and overhead casting styles with ease. The rods are counter balanced with the fulcrum point based around the reel stem or, just in front. This is the do it all rod for Bass, Wrasse and a multitude of species from boat, kayak, skishing (wetsuit fishing) and shore.
The Staggered tip is recommended for Kayak and Boat where the mid section spigot is removed from the equation. 7-3″ was designed to move the right amount of line on a strike, move around the bow and stern of a kayak and to give enough tip out of the water when skishing.
Bite detection is electric and the power in the rod completely seamless no matter the fish size. Bass to over 10lb and wrasse to over 6lb have been taken on this model.
Supplied with optional counter balance weight system for optimal reel balance setup.

The Manufacturing Process
The Century Vectura Ti Lure rod is manufactured in UK in accordance with our quality and environmental management systems and we have complete trace on all raw materials and the manufacturing process. We apply our Autoclave Technology process to cure the 3M Powerlux™ resin system and advanced carbon fibre composite – to resist decay in performance by removing inter ply voids common in an oven cured rod blank. The Century range features our special anti twist technology AT-T – the placement internally of very fine grades of ultra high strength carbon fibre in the circumference of the rod blank.
Attention to detail has been paramount – for example night HRF (Hard Rock Fishing) styles are gaining ground fast – so conspicuity is important and we wrap the very upper guides in reflective thread. Discreet laser graphics on 316L stainless steel mid handle sit comfortably with titanium framed SiC guides – befitting the highest specification requirement for lightness and enhanced sensitivity.

Century current factory finished lure rods use titanium framed SiC lined guides. Remember to minimise line twist – one of the principal reasons for line coiling using fixed spool reels - by paying regular attention to this aspect and regularly de-twisting line stored on your reel. Please consult your reel manufacturer or dealer for detailed advice and guidance

3M™ Powerlux™ Composites feature a revolutionary technology that contains nano-sized spheres of silica so small, they are able to flow between individual filaments of carbon fiber, creating a matrix of strength throughout the entire composite. The resulting material enables designers to develop rods that are not only incredibly strong and durable, but also lighter in weight and more sensitive.3M™ and PowerLux™ are registered trade marks - 3M Corporate Headquarters, 3M Center, St. Paul, MN 55144-1000.
