The fast-action Centric promises excellent loop stability, recovery speed and casting range thanks to new tapers and resin that increase the rod’s density while reducing weight. Premium components include a redesigned reel seat with a Delrin lock washer for a snug hold. There are 11 models, ranging from an eight-foot six-inch 4-weight to a 10-foot 6-weight. Even beginners will find this rod a delight to cast.
