BB signifies BlackBird as Danny asked if we could and named after the legendary Lockheed S71 fast, long range, strategic aircraft!. The rod is a well thought out progression of an existing principal - used by Continental anglers. Longer rods for lighter line fishing to cast big distances at a stroke. The rod is highly effective using fixed spool or multiplier reels. We recommend 6lb - 10lb lines on fixed spool and 10 - 20lb lines on multipliers (use fingerstalls on fixed spool) for the rod. The rod in our opinion is the best on the market in its class, if you are looking for a 15ft rod to add a bit of distance but will still cope with mixed ground this is the rod for you.Global warming and commercial over fishing are driving traditional fish stocks away from existing habitats towards deeper and cooler waters. This has influenced our design thinking and we are looking to satisfy enthusiastic shore anglers who wish to pursue their sport under these changing conditions. Species such as pout, sea bass, John Dory and red mullet are increasingly populating more northerly latitudes and this presents new opportunities for dedicated designs like the Carbon Metal Blackbird. We have received positive feedback on rod's power to weight ratio and this benefit inevitably assists the roving angler. All century sea rods are immaculately finished with the new K guides
