Get a century stealth graphene or century surf machine graphene.... old ss and s are rods of the past.... they are the Bugatti of surf rods... last rod you will ever own

I have the 1265 and I cant say enough good things about it. The rod does all of the work for you on your casts. The less effort in your casts and the further the plug will go. I currently have a vs150 on it and its balanced nicely.

 

Pencil popping is effortless. The rod gives plenty of feedback with smaller swimming plugs but it can certainly dig in danny or subsurface plug.

 

Ive fought fish up to mid 30s on this rod in good current and its a fast action rod but the back bone has enough give to absorb the heavy runs when the bass sweeps its big broom tail.

Awesome rods, had mine with a VS200, natch made in heaven, and wish I never sold it...... bummer.... If you're looking for other options, you can't go wrong with a GSB, also I had a Star Paraflex that was a phenomenal rod for the money..... only downside was it was a 2 piece which may not be your thing....

I have the 1265 and am impressed with the range that it throws.  I have an Ultegra Ci4 5500 matched and it launches tins and Super Strike plugs to China.  It's also light enough to jig bucktails back to your feet in the wash.  Super, super rod for surfcasting duties on the beach.

This all being said.............i heard the Century Surf Machine is another level above this.  I'm keeping a close eye on it :th:

on a calm night and 2 oz i can hit 100-110yds effortlessly.

 

Gave it to my buddy up at the canal because he broke his rod. and he was hitting mid canal on every cast with an IRT 4k or 5k on it.

I have a 1505 so it’s a bit longer but I can’t say enough about these rods. Takes very little effort to cast at max distance.  Very light just great rods

Contact Ryan White and he will a give you all of the details on the surf machine! Ofcourse if you go grapehene you will pay a pretty penny but the rod can handle an elephant attack

I believe that all new sling shots are graphene.
