HI, 

has anyone got or owned a set of the Century rods above? How old do you think they are? its got the number 6116 on the blank so i presume that's a model number?

cheers 

The SP was quite a long lasting rod, and a few versions autoclaved and pre-autoclave.

I had 2.75lb TC SP's with a black/dark grey reel seat, around 2005. This was a brown blank. From memory the number of the blank was printed on the butt and the tip section so I was always able to match the correct butt and tip. I don't think it is a model number, I actually think it is the number in the run. 

 

I'm not sure when the steel reel seat came into vogue, probably around 2011, but I could be wrong

I have spoken to them a few times, about custom builds (my NG's) and the carbon cloths and pre-pregs they use, always found them very helpful. 

 

What pre pregs do they use I fanny about with pre preg at work 😅

It was years ago, sadly I no longer have the email from Simon Chillcott about where they come from.
