CTS Affinity X



CTS Affinity X Fly Rods

Fast action, lightweight and versatile, the CTS Affinity X has deserved its place as the most popular carbon fly rod blank in the CTS collection.

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 X 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.

The Affinity X has a powerful butt section, but balanced perfectly with a delicate tip area. This creates a blank that loads smoothly and quickly into a solid mid area, resulting in a fly rod that is ideal for delicate situations, whilst maintaining precision, casting authority and power when needed. This is a high performance carbon fly rod blank with exceptional recovery, that exceeds at creating tight loops and quick casts.

Affinity X carbon fly rod blanks are highly customisable, and you can configure a rod for any fishing situation. From flats fishing the Bahamas to stalking backcountry trophy trout in New Zealand. Whatever your style or needs, the Affinity X will take you there.

Made in our world-class facility in Auckland New Zealand. Tested by the most discerning anglers in every corner of the world.
