Cast off your preconceptions of fly rod design.
|Article number:||Center Axis|
The Center Axis may be the most meaningful advancement in fly rod performance since graphite replaced fiberglass all those decades ago. By closely aligning the center mass of our Litespeed reel with the center axis of our rods, we’ve de-levered the mass of the heavier object. The result will amaze you. You’ll feel the pulse of your cast like never before. Don’t take our word for it. Put the Center Axis in your hand. Casting is believing.
No matter how effective the Center Axis is at reducing reel-induced inputs, the system can only be as good as the rod it’s fitted to. Our freshwater rods are designed to be versatile, accurate, fun to cast and honest to their line weight. We think a 5 weight that needs to be over-lined to load short isn’t really a 5 weight. A versatile rod trades a little line speed for the ability to form D-loop casts and project loop symmetry in a variety of conditions. It’s a balancing act from a design standpoint, but we think you’ll be impressed with the results.
