Century Eliminator T1000 Beach Fishing Rod
The Eliminator T1000 is built and designed for fishing demanding conditions – large boulders, kelp and fast tidal streams. Initially it feels very powerful but this is deceptive because it bends and recovers gradually to release this power smoothly from the middle power bands in the butt: adjust your timing, control the flow and T1000 delivers smoothness over all casting styles. The low rod diameter, the ability to handle large baits and big weights at long range will appeal to anglers that fish the hardest conditions multiplier or fixed spool, braid or monofilament and still want a rod that is comfortable to use.
The technical specification is huge and well researched. Century has incorporated HPR resin technology, Autoclave Technology and for the first time 45/45 STF (spread tow fabric) to improve AT-T anti-twist. The STF surfaces at the upper butt and lower tip and compliments the Anti-Twist Technology incorporated throughout the rod. STF comes straight out of Formula One and all cars use this material extensively in the chassis for performance. Fitted with the robust yet super light Fuji Titanium K guides as standard keeps excess weight to a minimum. This rod includes more premium features as standard than any other out on the market.
The Eliminator T1000 makes a perfect tool for flat plane casters but it is capable of being easily mastered by a high swinger or someone who prefers an overhead thump. It obliterates heavy ground fishing and rips through kelp – but it still has enough give in the tip to show bites and prevent hooks pulls. Although the blank is powerful, reeling in fish is a pleasure because the rod gives excellent feedback and transmits the thuds of fighting fish – delivering full control over boulders, reefs, weed and in strong tidal rips.
