TS12-125 12ft/1lb 4oz: £255.00
Eight rings plus tip - 20mm butt/8mm tip.
Built on the 1.25lb Torrix Specialist blank. Quite similar to the 1lb 10oz Interceptor but with the woven Torrix butt section.

TS12-175 12ft/1lb 12oz: £260.00
Eight rings plus tip - 25mm butt/8mm tip.
Built on the 1.75lb Torrix Specialist blank. The Torrix 175 and 200 are slightly thicker in overall diameter than the Chimeras 1 and 2, but are thinner walled and lighter. The Torrix also bends more progressively into the butt making, to my mind, a nicer fish playing tool. Despite its stated test curve this is currently my first choice for roach fishing at medium to long range with heli-feeder rigs. It is soft enough in the tip to handle 2lb bottoms and size 18 hooks when roaching, but has the power lower down to tame big tench. It's not half bad for chubbing either!

TS12-200 12ft/2lb: £260.00
Eight rings plus tip - 25mm butt/8mm tip.
Built on the 2lb Torrix Specialist blank. In comparison to the Chimera series this rod falls between the 2 and 3. It makes a great rod for tench and bream (see here) as well as a good all round barbel rod - where its lightness will be of benefit to mobile anglers.

TS12-250 12ft/2.5lb: £320.00
Eight rings plus tip - 25mm butt/8mm tip.

Built on the 2.5lb Torrix carp blank.
Over recent seasons I have built a number of these rods for barbel anglers, mostly fishing the Trent, as an alternative to the Chimera No.3.

TS11-300 11ft/3lb: £265.00
Six rings plus tip - 30mm butt/10mm tip.
Although this Torrix blank was designed for carp fishing (which is it ideal for) I have also found it to be an excellent eel rod. The fine tip is good for casting lighter weightsand baits than used for pike fishing and the action has enough give to absorb the lunges and writhings of big eels. I ahveused it for both pike and catfish but prefer my P-5 for those species.

TS10-275 10ft/2.75lb: £260.00
Six rings plus tip - 30mm butt/10mm tip.
Another blank intended for carp fishing, this as a stalker. Despite that provenance it has become my favourite eel rod. The middle to through action and test curve being just to my liking. Pikers who have handled this rod have echoed my thoughts about its suitability as a boat pike rod for use with soft/small baits because of its slightly softer tip compared to my P-4.

Rods can also be built on other Torrix blanks including those below (all are two piece):

11ft 1.75lb
11ft 2lb - When I wanted an eleven foot rod for (hopefully) big tench this was the blank I chose.
