Century Fireblade

Well I have had the Fireblade for a little while now but sadly due to the COVID19 lockdowns haven't been able to fis with here as much as I would like.

The rod is 13' 2 piece of equal length rated from 123 grams to 175 grams plus baits. The rod features are as follows.

Features:

Multi-phase high tensile composite butt with 3K-3K carbon twill cut at 45 bias.
Tip – reverse fit joint and glass/high tensile carbon, hybrid, rapid recovery tip.
Computer-controlled proprietary oven cure technology.
Factory Finish: Matt black coated, stainless steel Delta forward sloping, anti-tangle guides.
Guides set in hybrid configuration for fixed spool or multiplier use.
Tied in red metallic tips(butt) and Jet-Black grade A grade thread with multi coats of high build.
Marine grade etched stainless steel trim band – upper butt.
Japanese shrink rubber (JSR) handle.
JSR rubber separator grip on lower tip and upper butt.
Equal sections – tip and butt.
Century Fuji moveable reel seat (size 24) and EVA caps.
Supplied in Century cloth rod bag
Length – 13′. Casting Ratio – 125-175g. Butt section blank diameter 22mm.

The rod will handle lighter weights as you will see in the attached videos and is very user friendly for people wanting to get into distance casting without breaking the bank but still maintaining the British build and attention to details.

As mentioned she is rung for both fixed spool and threadline and casts both well.

And with the benefit of the adjustable reel seat the angler can utilise either high reel or low reel casting positions.

Had another session with the Fireblade but just with the practice casting blob. Both in the high reel and low mount position.
