Just as Tis was again telling me how great the Torrix 12' 2 1/2 is, I received an email from one of our German customers, Mario Winnekes who has just received a set of these very rods.
First bite first time out he has bagged himself a 36kg fish which I picture below.
I notice they have a few rod building titles available on the website plus many books on Carp including rare first editions by BB.

Tuesday 18th October 2011 I have been asked to provide the weights for the Kigan rings used in the recent video, so here goes. 50 = 16.4g, 40 = 9.4g, 30 = 6.7g, 25 = 4.4, 20 = 2.9, 16 = 1.9g 12T = 2.2g If you compare that to other premium brands, it is a low weight, and they are very flexible too, with no downside on durability or friction. Monday 17th October 2011 The Tackle and Gun trade show is still on but the hit new Harrison products of the first day were the new 12. The Trebuchet Light falls between the full power Trebuchet and the top of the Torrix range in terms of casting power.A true l;ong range rod, it has been tuned to make it load up more easily in fishing situations.You do not need to be a tournament caster on a field to exploit the power of this new rod. The throwing stick is something we have been working on for a while, made from 100% woven carbon it is ultra light and and tough. Thursday 13th October 2011 egarding rod rings or line guides.Proving my point that you do not need a stiff rod to land big fish.And of course the lighter rod will always be a joy to use.
