    CTS CNC Salmon / Steelhead

    Built Spinning or Casting (See pics)

    CNC blanks are super slim and light, with a very fast parabolic action.

    The rod loads beautifully over the entire blank, will cast impressive distances, and is sensitive enough to notice even the slightest bait movement.

    The CNC range uses our highest modulus carbons to keep profile and weight down. CNC has a powerful tip area that ramps up in power to the middle part of the blank. From there the taper slows right down through to the base of the blank to give you a nice smooth load.

    Material Grade: 57msi Carbon Blend
    Core: VeroCore™ Carbon Helix
    Taper: Moderate
    Taper Type: Single, Progressive
    Action: Extra Fast (Affinity Float Moderate)

    CTS Affinity MX Fly Rods

    With an extremely smooth and forgiving medium-fast action that’s easy to load and delivers predictably, the CTS Affinity MX provides the angler with quicker recovery and more punch in the short-to-medium range.

    Thanks to our constant taper system, the blank loads quickly and delivers the smooth power needed for distance and accuracy.

    The Affinity pedigree is unmatched – it’s our cornerstone fly rod series, as a result of its superior design, engineering and materials. A single VeroCore™ helical spiral is at the core of each 100% uni-directional carbon fibre (graphite) Affinity MX fly rod blank. This type of structure is regarded as the most effective way of maintaining cross-section stability during bending, therefore creating a fly rod that is more responsive and more sensitive. This is not only apparent when casting, but also when fighting a fish and even when setting the hook. Feel the difference with a CTS carbon fly rod blank.

    Read about the differences between the Affinity X, M and MX.

    Affinity MX carbon fly rod blanks are highly customisable, and you can configure a rod for any fishing situation.

    Affinity Skagit

    The Affinity Skagit two-handed fly rod blank was developed and tested with help from many experienced two-handed fly anglers from around the world.

    The Affinity pedigree is unmatched – it’s our cornerstone fly series, with superior design, engineering and materials selection. A single VeroCore™ helical spiral is at the core of each 100% uni-directional carbon fibre Affinity Skagit. This type of structure is regarded as the most effective way of maintaining cross-section stability during bending.

    Compared to the Affinity DQ: Affinity Skagit two-handed fly rod blank has slightly less flex (is stiffer) in the top 2/3, and has more flex (softer) in the bottom 1/3. This is done to more easily manage anchor release of Skagit shooting heads with heavily grained tips and heavy flies in tow, and to more easily manage dangle release of full sink classic Spey lines.

    With Skagit shooting heads: The Affinity Skagit two-handed fly rod tapers come to the fore to manage the sustained anchor of extreme sink tips and heavily weighted flies with an absolute minimal amount of expended energy on the part of the caster. Line management of these lines (as with all shooting heads) is best done with a very economic short stroke, and underhand dominant.

    With classic Spey tapers: The Affinity Skagit two-handed fly rod blanks are authoritative in the delivery of mid to long belly Classic Spey tapers, and will do especially well with full sink Spey tapers and heavy flies. Mid to long belly Spey tapers will inherently ask for a wider stroke. This is best done with an even high hand / low hand power push, and a slight underhand power at the end of the stroke.
