The Fario CRS project started off as a conversation and exchange of ideas on casting and singlehanded trout rod actions. Eventually these ideas turned into a quest to create a trout anglers dream rod, inspired by the collective experience of professional casting instructor Christopher Rownes and Guideline’s head of research & development Leif Stävmo. The challenge was to find a way to develop blanks that had the right quality, attitude, curve, recovery speed, low weight and diameters to form a good foundation for the finished rod. After two years in development, we are proud to introduce the result of their hard work.
CRS are high performance, super lightweight and fast-action rods with massive power-reserves in the bottom part of the rod. If you love your casting and enjoy carving tight loops through the air, these rods will appeal to you as much as the reasonable price tag they carry. The Fario CRS Series in this first generation consists of seven incredibly light, crisp-action trout rods. They range from 8’9” to 9’ and are available in both 4- and 6-piece models.
