New Zealand’s rod company CTS today announced a new series of its premium Quartz fiberglass rods, designed for fly fishing aficionados who prefer their glass extra fast.
The Quartz TurboTaper™ (TT) series uses a turbo-charge design concept to create a more dynamic, faster rod with exceptional power.
Aptly named the ‘turbo’ because it delivers extra power when needed, the TurboTaper™ is a CTS innovation that speeds up a rod taper, injecting more power in the butt of the rod, while keeping the tip area nice and agile.
CTS pioneered the production of uni-directional fibreglass fly rods in the mid 2000’s, and has been at the forefront of glass innovation ever since.
TurboTaper™ innovator Stephen Pratt explains that “unlike older ‘broom stick’ actions that are typically found in fast powerful rods, the TurboTaper™ brings power in smoothly, enabling the angler to present an easier, more accurate cast yet have the control and powerful delivery that a stiff base area provides”.
He says the newest range of Quartz TTs is specifically targeted at heavier line weights and saltwater fly applications, and “provides the perfect action for anglers wanting a dynamic, powerful rod.”
