The Free Spirit CTX Stalking rods are a well-balanced, lacquered finish rod, with its distinctive ‘X’ tape weave and stainless steel collars. The CTX Creeper is visually pleasing and it certainly stands out from the crowd but at the same time nothing has been missed out in its design as it comes with superior performance. Whether it is poking it among the bushes and reeds, sneaking one up the margin or for using from the boat the creeper has it all. The CTX Creeper comes in a 9’ version in 2.75lb test curve and available with full duplon or full cork. The 10’ 3.25lb test curve is a more powerful version and comes in abbreviated or full cork handle versions.
The manufacturing process of the CTX creeper blank is something to be admired. Every rod goes through a comprehensive, highly complex process to ensure the integration of the high modulus 36t and 32t carbons with a resin content of below 25% is completed robustly and right first time. The composition of the carbon and weave system contributes to delivering a blank that is extremely light and super strong. To optimise the strength of the blank a 90 degrees and 0 degrees alternating wrapping is applied. In addition to this a 3mm bi-axis carbon tape is also applied at 45 degrees and the combination of the two provides a unique structure with an unprecedented tensile strength yet super light slim line blank, like no other.
It’s hard to find another blank on the market within this price range that can provide such a positive and significant power to weight ratio and still provide such elegance.
The CTX range is aesthetically pleasing due to the ‘X’-tape that runs the length of the blank making it unique and stand out from the crowd. The CTX range of rods are certainly a head turner and it’s certainly not a case of blending in but more a case of blending out.
The CTX creeper rods have been finished with Fuji DPS reel seats, stainless steel collars and ‘S’-Lite guides which come in a 40mm version. You may be thinking that all these features are going to come at a price but we can assure you that this range is affordable and you will be getting a lot of blank for your money.
