In light of Covid-19, Fly fishing is the best social distancing sport out there! We hope that all our customers family’s are doing well during this time!
The new Rods by Pagosa Rod and Tackle with the CTS Affinity X 10′ 3 wt blanks out of New Zealand are sold out!!, so if you were thinking about getting one of these fantastic rods we are now taking orders!!!
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. The butt section is finished!!
