Super lightweight and strong
I was in the need for a 9 foot rod for fishing buck tails and plugs from the beach and this rod met my requirements it's lightweight and has a nice back bone with a sensitive tip. You can cast all day and not me sore the next day I highly recommend it

Excellent Surf Rod, great price point
Handles 1.5-2 oz baits with razor like precision. Rod action suits surf, jetty and bay fishing perfectly. Overall amazing quality and value for the price. Have handled bluefish and stripers up to ~20lbs with ease. Sensitive enough to use for shore based fluking as well but so far I've only pulled out shorts for the season. Don't hesitate - amazing rod. I have it paired with a Penn Slammer 6500 for blue/strippers and switch off to Penn Slammer 4500 for fluking.

Great rod for the money
If you don't have the $$ for a true Lami (not an Insane Surf, the real Lami's) or high end St Croix, ODM, etc, this offers an alternative to the other low-mid range surf rods. Very light and casts a mile. I bought the 10'6" and find that it's better suited for 1-4 oz rather than the 2-8 as stated on the blank. I would absolutely not want to throw anything over 5 oz. with this. Have yet to put a decent fish on it but we will see how well it performs long-term. TFO has a great warranty like St Croix, so i expect to have it for a long time.

The rod I got in package rates 40# test and says 2-8oz lures. It's very light and would not want to throw an 8oz plug on it. The description online of the item I thought I purchased said it was rated 25# and 1-6oz lures. Just want to verify I got the right one. It is 8'6 two piece with foam and handle. Any thoughts for us?
Bryan, the GTS 862MH is rated for 2-6 ounces, The ratings where changed due to customer feed back on the rods. I spoke with Collins from TFO directly and he said he would defiantly not throw anything over 6 oz. on this rod. The only reason it has the wrong rating on it is because it is old stock.
