New Guides and a Fresh Design Highlight New TFO Professional Rod Series

By Nicholas Conklin, Temple Fork Outfitters

There are a handful of rod actions and powers that should reside in any serious angler’s rod locker.

One of the most valuable rods to have on the boat is the new Professional Series rods designed by Gary Loomis, and built by TFO.

We took all of the positive attributes and actions from our wildly successful Signature Series and have transitioned them into the Professional Series.

Featuring 20 models, with rods from a 6’0” ultra-light spinning model to a 7’6” Heavy power rod, the Professional Series classic, medium-fast action will allow anglers the most efficient tool to deliver a lure and land a fish.

Professional Series rods feature Fuji® guides, for enhanced sensitivity and durability when fishing braided lines or in saltwater environments.

Gary’s one-piece Professional Series rods are a rich matte black with matching wraps highlighted by silver tipping.

The rods feature composite cork handles that are more durable and provides a more consistent grip when wet. Models feature both split and full-cork grips.

Professional rods incorporate TFO’s color ID system to make sure you grab the correct rod when the action is hot.

Rods retail for $99.95-$109.95.
