TS12-125 12ft/1lb 4oz: £220.00
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: £220.00
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: £220.00
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.

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

12ft 2.5lb
11ft 1.75lb
11ft 2lb - When I wanted an eleven foot rod for (hopefully) big tench this was the blank I chose.
10ft Stalker - Quite pokey for a stalker. Would make a good eel rod.
