Temple Fork Outfitters

Postby ptfranze » Wed Jan 16, 2013 12:50 pm

I am looking at purchashing some new saltwater and freshwater rods a friend of mine suggested TFO rods. I was wondering if anyone had ever used them and if so what they thought?

Thanks!

I think there is better rods out there in the same price point. I find many of their models feel very dead in the butt section or the next section up.
We fish some Redingtons and our clients like them and of course have all the models of Sages but have the Approach 7 wt and it is a fun rod to fish

CPX is a really great rod --we have some of the older models CPS --they have a really nice feel

Redington replaced a broken Wayfarer 9 weight with a CPX. I used it a lot in Baja. Really nice rod.

I ended up talking to a friend who moved out to Colorado recently and he gave me his Scott A4 8 weight with a Ross CLA reel.

Sweet rod and a decent reel. Enjoy!
