  1. How much difference is there really between a medium, fast action 8-17 lb test rated 7ft rod and a medium heavy, fast action 10-20 lb test rated 7 ft rod, same exact company/rod type? Looking at the TFO Tac Inshore for some saltwater pier fishing. Leaning towards medium-heavy because it can handle slightly higher lure rating and I'm trying to practice bucktail jigging, but got me thinking. In reality, to the average joe fisherman (goes out once a week), how noticeable would the difference be in casting/sensitivity/fight etc, if at all, all other things equal? Or is it really just a paper (spec) difference that you would only really notice if slinging a 1 oz and up lure?
  2. It's brand new. Perfect plugging/jigging rod for the CCC. $200 pickup in Plymouth, MA only.
  3. WTS a TFO 11' Mag H Surf Rod 3-8 oz. Setup is for spinning. As you may know. TFOs are lifetime warranteed rods/blanks. If ever an problem with rod, simply call TFO and ask for a new blank. In most cases they dont even ask you to ship back the old blank. They just send out replacement for small fee. These rods just dont break not likely you'll ever use the warranty. This rod was never used much. I dont spend much time at the beaches. Used less than 5 times in the last 5 years. Rod is in phenomenal working order and still aesthetically pleasing. The shrink wrap has a small cut and I taped it with a little duct tape. $215 Cash and pickup only. Willing to meet at location convenient for me.
  4. Looking to see if anyone has the bottom half of the 10'6" TFO surf rod (blue). I broke the bottom of mine, hoping someone else sent one in for warranty when their top broke and has an extra bottom laying around. Thanks for looking.
  5. Hi, I broke the tip of my TFO rod and I was wondering if anyone replaced their rod with the warranty and how did you do it? I purchased my rod from Tomos tackle in salem, MA and I still have the receipt. Can I just go back to Tomos tackle show the receipt and get a replacement or do I have to go through TFO customer service? any feedback would help. thanks!
  6. Hi guys, Long time reader of this forum and the time has come to seek for advice. Don't beat me up right away, since i have already used a search function in order to find the best fishing rod for the Canal. Basically have two questions: 1. I am looking for a spinning rod that could be a good fit for the PENN Slammer 3 6500 High Speed. I am primarily looking for jigging, throwing jerkbaits, maybe even throwing chunks from the surf occasionally, with the least priority given to the topwater lures. Is there any rod that is multifunctional and does everything not perfect, but just good? Anything in 2-8 oz range. 10-12Ft. Budget: $350. I currently use 9ft Star stellar 1-4 oz fast, but this is definitely not enough to make long casts on the Canal. I have stopped my choice on St. Croix Mojo Surf and St. Croix Avid Surf, but i have seen a lot of debates on perfect rod for the Canal and there are a lot of opinions about my choice being not a very reliable one. People seem to give their favor mostly to everything from ODM Jigster, TFO, Star Paraflex, XSRA 1205, Tsunami Airwave Elite to 600$+ custom made poles. But unfortunately, i can not try every single rod and learn from mistakes, especially by spending seasons of trial and error and thousands of dollars). Please advice! 2. I would also love to hear any comments on SLAMMER 3 6500 HIGH SPEED as well, since i haven't seen a soul using it on the Canal. Seems to be a really good reel with an amazing retrieve rate (48 inches per crank!). Which reels are competitors to this one? (besides Saragosa) Thank you very much for any advice in advance, truly appreciate it.

  9. Retired and have way too many rods, reels and other fishing equipment. Downsizing to just what I need. Billy Pate Anti Reverse RH (Ted Juracsik) Tarpon on TFO BVK 9' 12WT 4 piece. $450 picked up. Billy Pate Anti Reverse RH (Ted Juracsik) Bonefish $290 picked up. I can meet within an hour of zip 08759.

  10. So I just picked up a new TFO 11' .5 - 2.0oz rod. Looking to pair with a nice, relatively in-expensive, reel. My head is spinning. Every time I think I've narrowed it down, I find something else. This being my first lighter weight setup for throwing sp's and stuff, I'm also torn if I should go 30# or 40# braid route. The rod is light, 11.4oz, so I want to keep the reel under 16oz max. Slammer III 4500: 14.7oz : 250yds 30#: 30 drag Daiwa BG 4000: 14.3oz: 280yds 30#, 200yds 40#: 17.6 drag -- I like the 4500 better, but 22oz weight: 22 drag Spinfisher 4500: 15.40oz: 200yds 30# Anything else in the sub $250 range?

  20. I have a used TFO for sale. Purchased last winter and used sparingly this past season.

Rod is in very good-excellent condition with a few minor surface scratches in the usual spots. Reel seat and guides in very good-excellent condition. $150 cash pick up/meet up only. I live on the south Shore MA and travel to Central MA frequently.
  21. Hello everyone, Backstory - I'm looking for a "general" surf rod that needs to be able to break down to travel size so I can(easily) take it everywhere I might go. Primarily fishing off NC coast though. Stumbled across the 8'8 MAG Med heavy 4 peice Loomis inspired/designed by TFO. However, can find little if any information about this rod. It also appears to be discontinued by TFO. Anyone used it? General opinions on TFO? says its rated for 1-4ounce. I considered the triumph travel but seems its a little on the lighter side, perhaps this rod is the same.
  22. For sale or possibly trade is a great light, small stream set up that I purchased earlier this year and just did not get much use out of. 8'6 BVK 5wt and an Abel super 3n large arbor reel. The rod is in great condition, and the reel is in like new condition. Reel also comes with 20 lb backing but no line. I am located in NY on LI and would greatly prefer to meet in person. Asking $580 for the pair.
  23. Does anyone have the 11' tfo with 1/2-2 ounce lure rating? I have handled one, though I haven't test cast one. Any reviews would help. Thanks
  24. Wanted to sell tfo surf rod 10'6", 2-6 casting weight. Blue blank model. Great canal rod. Rod is nearly new condition with exception of tiny tear in shrink wrap near handle.
