Century FMA 12ft Casting Rods
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.
Casting distances in excess of 200 yards hav e been a regular feature of our development programme and the tip has many of playing characteristics of the Century FBS range. A truly remarkable combination fused at birth in the autoclave for action retention and total integrity. Processed We hav e giv en FMA’s a casting weight rating rather than a test curve.
Centrury focus is to produce the best long-range and playing carp rods available: extensive trials confirm the 2 models available - FMA1 for casting 3-4 ozs and FMA2 for casting 3-5 ozs are truly sensational . We use Century double leg 50 pattern SIC guides, configured to give the same performance we achieve at Tournament.
The rods are finished in Century’s UVA resistant si lk matt f inish. We fit a Century SB20 stainless reel seat and the rod graphics are lasered onto an ultra fine stainless tube beneath the seat. A full length JSR handle is fitted below the reel seat.
