2015 saw the release of the superb Century CQ (Close Quarter) range, with the show-stopping 9ft 3.5lb three-piece version being developed closely in conjunction with short-range wizard and Thinking Anglers main man, Steve Fantuzzi.
By popular demand, new for 2016, comes this: a 2.75lb version for those who prefer something with a more through action from butt to tip. The original 3.5lb CQ boasts a very forgiving tip section but holds substantial reserves of power in the lower sections, whereas the new 2.75lb model is a true player’s rod in every respect. Every section of the rod has been completely redesigned to give a totally different action.
As with its bigger brother, the new CQ 9ft three-piece fit perfectly into the dual branded Century/Thinking Anglers 3 Rod Case and the two-piece 42-inch net completes the set-up to perfection. “GIMME”: £285.00; centurycarp.co.uk
