Torrix is the Flagship in the Steve Harrison designed Carp Rod series. It utilises tapers and materials to produce fantastic performance with low diameter and weight. The butt and tip utilise two different carbon fibres in the zero axis to achieve low down casting power with forgiving no lock-up characteristics in the middle and tip. At ninety degrees is a ribcage of super lightweight carbon which controls the rod in compression. How the carbon performs in compression is as important in a bending rod as the way the fibres perform in tension. We aim for a design which balances the compression and tension performance to optimise the balance between casting and playing fish. The butt of the rod is given a surface ply of 1k carbon fabric which strengthens the rod, improves hoop strength and reduces torque. It looks pretty good too!
The most popular model is the 12ft 3.25lb which will cast distance effortlessly in real world conditions and has produced close to 180yds on a casting field. If you are looking for range the Torrix Special12'6" is the one which can achieve those extra few yards yet is still a very slim and light rod.
Standard finish in the Torrix is a Matt blank but they are also available in the following gloss colours, Grey, Chestnut, Burgundy, Deep Blue and Bottle Green.
