Temple Fork Outfitters and Gary Loomis built on the success of a previous collaboration to generate the new GTS — Gary’s Tactical Series — rods. The series includes 19 models from 6-foot-3-inch, light-action spinning rods to 7-foot-11inch heavy bait-casting sticks. TFO says Loomis focused on saving weight and increasing sensitivity without sacrificing strength. The blanks feature a two-piece reel seat and a cork-ring split grip. The Tactical Series guides employ machined, chrome-anodized stainless inserts swaged into chromium-impregnated stainless frames. The rods cost $149.95 each. Call 800-638-9052 or visit www.tforods.com.
