Thomas & Thomas is making a resurgence in the fly rod market in 2012, by introducing its “TNT Saltwater Series,” which the company says represents the lightest, thinnest, and fastest saltwater rods T&T has developed. Utilizing high modulus graphite, improved resin and “Rhino” nick-resistant finish, the TNT’s are designed to deliver heavy flies in to winds with power and accuracy. These are rods for die-hards of the flats, and are available in 4-piece, 9’0″, 7 thru 12 weight options. They feature deep red colored blanks with red wraps, high-grade cork handles, and the clear, anodized reel seat that is a T&T standard. MSRP is $800.
