Lifting power is the name of the game on the offshore grounds, and TFO’s hybrid S-glass sticks in combination with IM6 graphite are built to do battle. If you’re chasing brutes like billfish, tuna, trevally and sharks, these are the sticks you want to have in your arsenal. Of course, getting the fly to the fish is a vital part of the game, and you’ll find that this series can deliver the goods from pint-sized poppers to feather duster-like streamers.
To provide increased power and durability, TFO put their blue water blanks through the TiCr coating process twice. The top-quality components include up locking reel seats, Flor grade cork, a full-wells grip with a fore grip and a unique blue granite finish. The Baby and Light Duty rods utilize snake and titanium oxide stripping guides. Their Medium Duty and battlewagon Heavy Duty rods have aluminum oxide inserts on all guides including tip tops. Both of these rods now feature a continuous composite cork handle for greater comfort and durability. For 2013, the Heavy Duty is now a 4-piece rod utilizing a revolutionary new reverse-ferrule design. In big game fishing where second-rate gear is quickly relegated to the junk pile, it’s all-important to equip yourself with the right stuff. Get into the contest with rods that truly live up to their name: TFO’s Bluewater series.
