5WT TOURNAMENT DISTANCE AND ACCURACY ROD
The COMP5 is the original PRO6 blank. With a 5-line it is heavily biased towards long carries. The tip is sufficently flexible to form a tight loop backcast with a 60ft pick-up and the butt can be driven hard with a 90ft carry. Being the HT6 blank, the rod is still very fishable. It's also a performance accuracy rod, which makes it a little bit unusual in the distance field. The trend in the World Championships is to move to stiffer and stiffer rods, however the HT COMP is certainly an excellent stepping stone if you are interested in competing.

The COMPETITION 5 is the rod I've used for all my 5-weight casting competitions during the past three years. It feels light, crisp and has excellent tip recovery. For the ACA combined accuracy and distance games, I think this would be the perfect tool. This is the rod/line combination I practise with.
