The CD Extrasense is often renowned by customers as being the most sensitive rod they have ever owned “You can feel a fish fart with the rod” some say.
Well nothing has changed in that department with the 40th Anniversary rod. What has changed is we have specd this rod to be the most high performing soft bait rod on the market. Standing in at 7’9” and with a weight rating of 8-12kg it’s versatile in sense of castability but also range of lures and soft baits used. It’s an absolute weapon to cast, almost too efficient, especially with their non-tangle guides!
The sensitivity comes from the simplicity of design with low profile Alps guides, minimalistic grips and a superlight weight Alps reel seat. But what really sets this rod apart is the 46 Ton carbon blank.
Not only is it light weight but is super responsive making it incredible easy to pick bite detection and set the hook. The durability of the 46T carbon gives this rod an incredible backbone that constantly works for the angler and provides plenty of grunt to turn a fish. Watching the rod double over on a fish is art and science at its best, everything about its parabolic and crisp nature makes it a pleasure to fish.
