Technology of the Century Eliminator T900
From a technical standpoint, Century have done their homework because the inherent technology and technical specification of the T900 is exhaustive. For example Century have incorporated HPR resin technology, Autoclave Technology and for the first time 45/45 STF (Spread Tow Fabric) to improve AT-T anti-twist. So launching big weights and baits offer no significant problem. The Spread Tow Fabric at the rear butt section and lower tip of the T900 compliments the Anti-Twist Technology incorporated throughout the rod. STF is an example of utilising technology from other sports, namely Formula One. STF is a technology straight out of Formula One and all F1 cars use this material extensively in the chassis for performance.
The Century T900's Rod tip is built primarily from S-2 unidirectional Super Glass – hence the abbreviation SGT. S-2 Glass is the ultimate in high performance and strength glass fibre providing the maximum level of performance available in this specialist reinforcement. S-2 is produced with increased levels of silica purity than standard glass fibre. S-2 Glass also offers the ultimate physical properties including high tensile strength, compressive strength and improved impact resistance. All these factors culminate in an outstanding beach/surf fishing rod for superior performance.
When you combine AT-T anti twist, Century's HPR resin matrix system and high pressure autoclave curing, the end result is a rod tip that delivers slow, easy, non-critical loading and superb indicator bite detection. So even at great distances, the tip on the T900-SGT can register even the subtlest of nibbles on your bait.
