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 rod, we’ve de-levered the mass of the heavier object. The result will amaze you. You’ll feel the pure pulse of your cast. Don’t take our word for it: Casting is believing.
The Center Axis system can only be as good as the rod it’s mated to, so truth be told, the majority of our effort went into developing a truly excellent fly rod.
We’ve built the rod that we wanted to fish: A dynamic, versatile rod that’s fun to cast. A rod that strikes a balance between speed and loop control. And specifically—because it gets its power from a deep loading bottom section—a rod that “rolls” with the expanding repertoire of D-loop casts.
This last point can’t be overstated. When your back is to the wall (Of overhanging willows) the ability to make a long, tight Scandi cast can be incredibly useful. To make this happen the rod needs to load deep. It’s not rocket science, but it’s a feature often overlooked.
Finish details were another opportunity to innovate. We took a lesson from the Heron, and finish our rods in a silhouette and flash reducing matte grey.
Having developed this fine fishing tool, we couldn’t resist offering it in a standard seat version as well.
