TFO Gary Loomis Tactical Cranking Rods

Designed specifically for cranking, the TFO Gary Loomis Tactical Cranking Rods offer advanced technique specific performance at a reasonable price. By utilizing a new proprietary scrim in conjunction with Temple Fork Outfitter’s high modulus carbon fiber blank material, legendary rod designer, Gary Loomis, was able to save weight and increase sensitivity without sacrificing strength, and still offer the parabolic actions and moderate tapers you need for fishing crankbaits. The blanks are also tastefully finished and polished with a thin layer of matte clear coat to enhance the natural luster of the fibers, and proprietary Tactical Series Guides with stainless steel inserts and frames offer 30% weight savings over standard SiC guides, as well as, advanced, super slick, saltwater-safe performance. Perfect for anglers looking for a quality lightweight cranking rod, the TFO Gary Loomis Tactical Cranking Rods also feature TFO’s trademark color ID split grip handle for easy identification at a glance, and each rod is further complimented by a two piece reel seat and a natural cork ring split grip.

Customer Reviews

Comments: So I have been fishing their fly rods for over 10 years. They are the best on the market in my opinion (not even a discussion for bang for your buck) so naturally my first bass rod was this one. I have over a dozen rods ranging from $100-$400 and this rod is still one of the best rods I own! The will back this rod with a personal guarantee that is hard to find these days and it will never fail you.

Comments: I just picked one up today and I am seriously impressed, the rod taper says fast but it is much more of a moderate and this thing is gorgeous. I already like it more than my Loomis and had I known about these before hand I would have bought 2 of these instead. I wish I was as talented as B and could totally review the rod and tell its sensitivity through my computer screen and tell where everyone works too. You should try online dating. The warranty on this rod though was the clincher. Lifetime replacement. Incredible!

Comments: the TFO rod does not cost $500.00 and no it is not marketed to be an NRX type rod...but guess what. I have 4 NRX rods and I am really wondering now if I made a bad choice spending in excess of 2,000.00 of hard earned money opposed to buying these. I did just that. I bought a TFO. People let me tell you...It's the best $150 rod on the planet and believe me when I tell you that these rods will do everything that an NRX rod will do....especially by getting better customer service. I have broken 2 of my NRX rods only to be charged a fee to get it back. the NRX rods are brittle and you have to babysit them. I may just buy another TFO.

From: Ray: Jamestown, KY

Comments: TFO hit a homerun with these 2 new cranking rods. They have the parabolic feel of glass, but lighter and more responsive. These are easier and more accurate to cast than typical glass rods. They are not noodles, but not stiff either. I would get both as they complement each other. The 79 is perfect for anything 10ft and deeper, 7 for all less
