Temple Fork Outfitters New Mini Magnum Fly Rod
What do big fish that live in and around all types of heavy cover have in common? Once hooked they will kick your butt before burrowing into the thickest junk they can find! Don’t let them kick your rod’s butt too. The new “Mini Magnum” by Temple Fork Outfitters was designed, with help from Nick Curcione, well, to kick butt back.
The 8′ Mini Magnum utilizes Temple Fork’s Bluewater technology (a hybrid combination of S-Glass and high-modulus carbon fiber for exceptional lifting power and casting ability), but is equally at home in both fresh and salt waters. So go ahead and throw your favorite popper into that tight spot, once eaten there’s enough butt strength to yard bucketmouth & pike out of the lilly pads, rip mossback yellows & seabass from the kelp beds or haul backcountry snook & tarpon away from the mangroves.
Every Bluewater rods goes through TFO’s proprietary TiCr coating process twice, adding power and durability. The rich blue granite finish on the 3 piece Mini Mag blank is quite distinctive. The rod itself features oversized stripping and snake guides, a channeled and cushioned up-locking reel seat set in a flor grade full wells grip with fighting butt and has a casting window of 300-400 grains. Suggested retail is $199.95.
All TFO rods feature a lifetime unconditional warranty. Simply return the damaged rod with $25 for shipping and handling, and we will repair or replace your rod. For additional information contact your local dealer or visit .
