Other wins on the 2004 casting circuit for the CTS-Strudwick Thomas Maire tournament rod were the German, Polish, Japanese and Australian Casting Championships.
"Casters have remarked on the rod's excellent action and tip speed and the growing number of CTS-Strudwick Thomas Maire rods on both the Junior and Senior casting scene worldwide. Together with the 2004 results this reflects the quality of the product. Success in casting sport requires the very best of both technique and gear. CTS-Strudwick's innovative designs, using the best materials, is getting the results."

CTS is proud to announce our membership of the American Fly Fishing Trade Association (AFFTA).
CTS is excited to announce the arrival of the latest ‘State of the Art’ rolling table fresh from the USA. This digitally controlled rolling table allows us to precisely control the rolling stroke acceleration and deceleration of our blanks, reducing fiber twist and optimizing blank straightness to levels only seen in a handful of companies around the world.
This latest table also boasts an innovative pressurized rolling bed. Unlike standard rolling tables that have a fixed flat bed our new taper forming table, similar to an air bed, is specifically designed to apply even pressure to our latest radical tapering actions, ensuring minimal voids and improved fiber nesting. Our blanks are now stronger and more sensitive than ever.
The CTS 'Thomas Maire' signature series blanks take the top three places at the Australian Casting Championships.
