CTS Affinity DQ

Affinity DQ

$NZD 385$NZD 577

Affinity DQ was developed with input from many respected double handed anglers worldwide.


The DQ tapers increase tip power, and have the butt reserve to transfer power well into the cork when asked, and will deliver the longer bellied classic Spey tapers with a sensual authority that is a joy to have in hand.


The Affinity pedigree is unmatched – it’s our cornerstone fly series, with superior design, engineering and materials selection. A single VeroCore™ helical spiral is at the core of each 100% uni-directional carbon fibre Affinity DQ. This type of structure is regarded as the most effective way of maintaining cross-section stability during bending.


Scandi shooting heads, and classic underhand power delivery technique will inherently require tip loading. The DQ tapers with a very economic stroke, utilizing only minimal applied dominant underhand power. Minimal anchor “touch and go” deliveries typical of classic Scandi shooting head line systems will require utilizing only the top 2/3 of the DQ tapers for maximum performance.

    I lent a friend my DQ for a day and he wanted one in an instant. Casting backing into the guides. His personal rod was a 12’8″ (I think) Winston. No comparison – Herb
