TFO Pro Burnie Haney Highlights the GTS BBC 7116-1


TFO Pro Staffer Burnie has been putting the GTS BBC 7116-1 rod through its paces in upstate New York.

According to Burnie, “This past week I was able to get out and put the TFO 7’11” Mag Hvy through the paces and  I can say this is my new best A-rig rod… Hands down this thing’s a beast, light weight, with  plenty of power and the full cork grip provides ample room for comfortable two-handed casting.”



The GTS Swimbait rod has a softer tip, to allow an angler to easily lob large baits, but, a stout butt to aid in the hook-set and landing phase. 


The GTS Swimbait rod is the ideal tool for big, water displacing lures. Because of flag pattern on the Swimbait blank, the rod stores a massive amount of energy during the loading phase (back cast) and effectively releases the energy during the unloading (forward cast) phase, making delivery of large swimbaits, Umbrella Rigs, and large crankbaits easy. The Swimbait rod features an extended, full-cork handle to help reduce fatigue and allow anglers to comfortably position the rod while retrieving a lure.
