The Affinity rod is just awesome. We can apply a lot of pressure without fear of the rod breaking. We will definitely be getting more of these blanks.
…(Before using CTS) I had in regular use, a half a dozen of two-handed flyrods for which I’d been fully satisfied. Anyway none of those have been in use this season, mainly because of my new CTS’s. I think that pretty much says it all…
16 #8-9 Affinity DH. What can I say, this was the firestarter for the whole rod operation, and in a word it’s everything I imagined it to be.
I am now fishing with my 9″#5 Affinity Plus and I have never been impressed more with any other rod I have used. It is amazing, how much power this rod has… I congratulate the team for this rod, and I can assure you, this is not my last CTS rod.
I don’t own a finer fishing rod than the one I built on your blank”.
The 3pc #6 impressed me with its sensitivity and ease with which it produced tight accurate casts… this rod proved to consistently meet my highest expectations.
I was hesitant about getting blanks from a company so far away, New Zealand, but CTS made the process a piece of cake. The blanks themselves were all beautifully finished and straight as arrows.
A rod that you could use all day without feeling like you have been casting a broomhandle. A well presented rod that has been finished exceptionally well. All round an exceptional rod.
CTS is a first class operation. I was originally drawn to them for their ability to do concept design/engineering of multi pc. fly rods, especially the longer two handed rods. Their work is always prompt, and flawless…
Guys, Just a quick line to share a big thumbs up for the blanks sent so far. All excellent quality, and the performance has been nothing short of phenomenal!!! Very pleased <> Thanks for a job well done.
My AFFINITY X 9′ #6 in golden olive with smooth green snake ring windings is perfect, now at the near end of 2. season. mostly I use WF5F rio gold flyline, but also sometimes with heavier nymphs or middle streamer an WF6F Lefty Gray. Any guys who have seen it are very impressed of the rod; and after casting tests, with both fly line classes,from beginners to advanced fly fishers trying long casts up to the whole fly line in the air, ” It’s unbeliveable which immens power is in this marvelous, light weight rod. Thats my experience with I’ ll say your FLAG SHIP !!!!!.
