You are correct that the Torrix wasn't around in the 90's and came later. So apologies for any confusion. However, remember the later RP being based on 11' Torrix.As I remember, the Torrix range was not in production during the 90's although I'm happy to be corrected on this.
correct mate, that is the original rod, the more recent beefier rod was a torrix.I have an 11 foot Royalty Rover which I use for mainly static fishing on the river Severn - pics as attached.
Decent rod to fish with.
Is this the rod you are talking about ?
