Mog's Century FMA

Post by Jeremy Schrader » Fri Aug 05, 2011 8:07 am

Well I finally picked up Samantha's new FMA that I had been promising for her since earlier this year and she was quite happy to see the finished item and to get too feel it built up with a few of the reels that she will use with it in the coming season.

Overall length is 12 ' and the feel with both the Exceller 4500 DA and the Shimano Albrid is to her liking, the lighter overall weight of the Albrid is her preference but she will wait till she has used it on the beach a few time to finally make her mind up.

Sam has used the FMJ that I got earlier as well as a number of my other surf outfits but was wanting something lighter in overall feel and balance and decided that when I got the 12' TTLDSM that a lighter rod in the same length would be her preference. Also the smoother loading feel of the rod means that she doesn't have to try as hard to load into the butt section for the style of cast that she normally prefers on the beach.

Here are a few pictures of the finished work with the happy new angler.

The FMA comes up well

The high gloss finish shows up the work Luke has done well on the foregrip.

Chrome guide and Blue inserts complimenting well with the binding and top coat.

Century ATT technology clearly evident on the tip section , the fast recovery of the tip will compliment the spinning and light 2 to 4 oz weight range that the rod will be used for.

Size and Balance of the rod matches Sam's smaller size well

Luke Day has done an Excellent job with the bindings and finish and it wont be long before we get a few salmon to load the rod up hopefully maybe this weekend if things work out :D
