    Century TTR - Fuji T-KWAG (Gary Allner Rod Build)

    To remove this advert please register for a free account

    I have been for a while looking to get hold of a new rod for rock fishing & finally decided on a Century TTR blank 14ft. I had a conversation with Century regarding the rod, spacings & which eyes would be best for the rocks. I also did a bit of digging about on the net whilst deciding on eyes/tip ring.
    Overwhelmingly, at the moment people are jumping at the Fuji KWAG's & I discovered they do a Titanium version that are not only incredibly strong & lightweight, they won't corrode either. They seemed like the winning option until I worked out the price & that fact I couldn't get a full set from Hopkins Holloway, so the others came from Mudhole in the USA. Both companies were very helpful & shipped quickly.

    Next step was to get the rod built; I am quite fortunate that one of the guys I fish with regularly is an accomplished rod builder. He asked me what I wanted done, colours, resins, tip tape etc & I dropped the rod round at his place (local to Poole & Bournemouth). A few days later he called me to let me know it was ready to pick up and the results are below.

    Tip is a Fuji T-MNAT


    I'm really pleased with the results, Gary as usual has done an excellent job, I can't wait to take it out fishing off the rocks. If anyone wants me to forward his contact details, give me a shout & i'll PM them.

    Cheers, anything a decent size over in the Purbecks would be nice to christen it.
