C2 Mk2 Masters Rod
The Century C2 when first launched was quickly respected among carp anglers throughout Europe due to its benchmark setting; light weight, balance, fish playing characteristics and the latest carbon technology features. Century launched the original C2 as the next step on the development ladder to maintain our tradition of bringing out cult rods such as the Armalite and NG which are cherished and respected by owners over a lifetime of angling. Firmly planted in the market the C2 rods are set to continue that tradition and we are sure the C2 will stand the test of another 30+ years.
This new update to the C2 range still works from the original C2 design concept but now bringing cosmetics and additional blank test curves upto date with current carp angler needs. We have introduced a new Century custom carbon reelseat which has incredible looks thanks to the matt black metal hoods and lock rings. The handle has been changed to a full shrink handle which is both durable and brilliant looking while sat on the bank. The discreetly printed new Century C2 black logos on the blank and black butt cap will have your friends admiring the rods and quizzing you about how they perform in advance of their own purchase.
The latest 12’ 3.00lb and 12’ 3.25lb models closely follow the cherished playing actions of the previous 12’ 3.25lb and 12’ 3.50lb models. With the new full length 1k-1k carbon to the top of the tip and the slight adjustment in action expectation of a modern carp rod the test curves have been revised down ¼lb so that the new C2 models become 12’ 3.00lb and 12’ 3.25lb. The 3.00lb model we would recommend to smaller lakes, rivers/canals or with a boat on a larger lake. The 3.25lb with a slightly larger blank diameter than the 3.00lb can benefit anglers looking to cast slightly heavier 3.50 oz leads and deliver a bit of extra distance on both small and medium size lakes while still maintaining the famed C2 playing action. Fitted with size 40-12 guides on the 12’ 3.00lb and size 50-16 guides on the 12’ 3.25lb.
