- Affinity "X" & "DQ" Travel Blanks -

Affinity "Travel" Options

No matter where you are heading for that special angling adventure having the right rod, reel and line makes a difference.  Here is a collection of CTS New Zealand blanks that can cover any angling condition on earth.   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 blank with exceptional recovery, that exceeds at creating tight loops and quick casts.
