Performance wise Century have not held back. They have used modern HPR materials which has resulted in an overall 31% rod weight saving vs previous generation casting rods from Century such as the FMA 13ft. The rod is slimmer diameter in the butt section than the SP and has a standard overlap joint rather than reverse fit joint of the FMA. Some of that rod weight saving has come from the use of Titanium K guides but also the cosmetically stunning matt black aluminium finishing touches such as the Alps reel seat which they have laser engraved with C2-D graphics.
There is a much Enhanced Anti Twist Technology Tip compared to any other rod which you will quickly notice by feeling the lack of blank twist rotation especially in the upper tip section, this improves line flow and accuracy during long range casting. The HPR materials will once again provide a super sharp rod recovery to neutral which will help suit big leads and PVA bags. The use of Autoclave Technology during manufacturing will delay the softening process experienced on many other rods. This makes it a great choice for Carp Match anglers who will be using the rod for intense and continuous 24-48 hour matches and want the confidence that the blank is going to maintain its action and power over numerous years of tournaments despite casting out hundreds of heavy solid PVA bags.
Century have designed this rod with a softer and more compressible butt than the FMA but at the same time given it a more powerful tip. This gives the rod a more consistent whole rod loadup during the cast which makes the rod very suited to casting long ranges even when shock leaders are banned. Casting a 4oz lead using 0.35/15lb mono at 165 plus yards on larger venues is a scenario which can be achieved with this rod. That ability using mono does not stop the rods outright potential when shock leaders are allowed and 200 plus yards is well within the rods capability. These are long distances and less common scenarios for most anglers, Century are not saying that the rod is only suited for this long casting application but it’s nice to know the rod has the built in capability to do it when required.

Guidline Application Key
This is not a strict rule, powerful rods can still be used closer in ranges and likewise less powerful rods if used with a boat might be used at long range.
