    Agree with above, I use my T900's for everything, the tip has the best bite indication I've ever seen, don't see the need to use anything else, rough or clean, the T900 does it

    Nope, I haven't tried one, I had a wiggle of one up Keens tackle, it does feel very light, and is a thin blank. with the T700 I don't think you'd get the "do everything" I have cast whole mackerel with my T900's with a 6oz lead with no drama's, I also cast small worm baits with the same effect.

    I don't think you'd feel comfortable slinging out Very large baits using a T700

    I also used to own a Kompressor Sport and a Kompressor SS, the T900 in my opinion is the better suited rod for me

    No worries mate, I liked the Kompressor sport, but hated the SS.
    if you down S Wales anytime soon you'd be welcome to have a cast of my T900

    Can't you see if any guys on here will let you have a cast with the their t800 or t900 mate? It's a lot of money to spend out

    It certainly felt like it, but they didn't have a T800 to compare, when I purchased my T900 blanks, I contacted Century numerous times via email and phone, they were extremely helpful on every occasion, in fact I just received an email off them regarding sliding seat diameters, as i'm currently using coasters, but would now prefer a fixed seat .

    I'm sure if you asked them they'd be happy to help with any queries
