The ultra long range
carp rod- Century FMA (Force = Mass x Acceleration) . The
radical new design of this rod has been achieved through close
cooperation with Frank Warwick-one of the biggest hitters in carp
angling, together with a significant technical transfer from Century's
experience in competitive casting where Century hold the World Records
for casting 4oz, 5oz and 6oz.
The FMA departs from conventional thinking by a quantum leap. We
have started from a position that Century require a neutral taper in the
butt section: the butt is therefore parallel and incredibly just over
½” in diameter at its base. This allows us to position the power
bands in exactly the areas that wil l generate maximum tip speed.
The design of the rod is now governed by the materials and is less
reliant on a fixed taper, which hitherto had a disproportionate
influence on design and performance. This is one of the reasons
why all our World Records have been achieved with parallel butts.
Century use a complex series of ultra high modulus, high modulus and
intermediate modulus carbon patterns cross-l inked in the axis of the
rod. The hoop strength is increased with the use of 1K-1K carbon
twil l and special cross wrap carbon fibre inter ply which we call ATT.
The new action in the tip blends into the butt wi th a f lowing arc
when under compression and acts like a pretension spring. The
rod is incredibly quick in recovery and the virtues of braided l ine
can be used to the maximum. Conventional line is well protected
and the revised action real ly helps prevent hook pulls.
distances in excess of 200 yards hav e been a regular feature of our

characteristics of the Century FBS range. A truly remarkable
