Fast action, lightweight and versatile, the CTS Affinity 'X' has deserved its place as the most popular carbon fly rod blank in the CTS collection.


The Affinity pedigree is unmatched – it’s our cornerstone fly rod series, as a result of its superior design, engineering and materials. A single VeroCore™ helical spiral is at the core of each 100% uni-directional carbon fiber (graphite) Affinity X fly rod blank. This type of structure is regarded as the most effective way of maintaining cross-section stability during bending, therefore creating a fly rod that is more responsive and more sensitive. This is not only apparent when casting, but also when fighting a fish and even when setting the hook. Feel the difference with a CTS carbon fly rod blank.


The Affinity X has a powerful butt section, but balanced perfectly with a delicate tip area. This creates a blank that loads smoothly and quickly into a solid mid area, resulting in a fly rod that is ideal for delicate situations, whilst maintaining precision, casting authority and power when needed. This is a high performance carbon fly rod with exceptional recovery, that exceeds at creating tight loops and quick casts. 


From flats fishing the Bahamas to stalking backcountry trophy trout in New England. Whatever your style or needs, the Affinity 'X' will take you there.
