This is the multi range lure rod that was designed and tested for soft lures to around 9″ and hard lures in as wide a range (length and weight) as possible.
It is super fast, loads very easily and rewards the angler with long, controlled casts at ranges other rods cannot match with this amount of control. It works with ‘everything’ but, as most testing was done under the cover of darkness, you can pretty much work this rod with your eyes closed. It excels with weightless soft lures like senko’s and sluggos from 4 – 7″ fished in the soft needle style and yet, will work a top-water bait equally well whilst being a dream to work slim minnows at any depth. Because of it’s super, super fast recovery and balance system, it doesn’t throw wild loops of braid off the rod top which can lead to horrible braid knots when fishing weightless styles. Again though, this rod has been built for the modern lines that are available on today’s market. The power and compression reserves in this rod are truly unique; it is not at all stiff, never locks up and just delivers more as required.
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.
