*Guideline Range: Numerical 1-10 scale is to help determine how this individual rod model fits amongst other Century carp rods and its suitability to different; action, distance, playability levels. Low numbers indicate a rod has a softer through action suited to short range, close in fishing and greater fish playing focus. Medium numbers are a great all-round rod capability. High numbers are more powerful rod suited to fishing at intermediate and long ranges. These are not set rules as some anglers still fish powerful rods close in and although a low number rod will not be capable of casting 200 yards some anglers may use a boat with that rod to fish long range.
The Century FBS (Fat Boy Slim) brings back traditional carp angling to anglers that value and appreciate a rods playing action above casting distances. The FBS with its ultra low diameter design, glorious sweeping parabolic curve makes carp fishing a joy and gets away from the crowd who are using rods too powerful for what they need. The playing action focus might be a rarity in the current carp scene but FBS owners during the last 20 years know what they want in a fishing rod and the fundamental blank design principle of the Century FBS has suited them throughout.
The growing demand for 10’ carp rods has seen Century bring out FBS 10’ 3.00lb and FBS 10’ 3.50lb rods which make for great options if used in conjunction with a boat or when fishing closer in the margins or if a tight swim. The 12’ 2.75lb and 12’ 3.50lb models differ in materials used and power in butt section with the 12’ 2.75lb better suited to canals, small lakes and smaller carp. The 12’ 3.50lb is suited to established lakes which have older carp that have grown over the years and need a rod with extra power than the 12’ 2.75lb.
