Temple Fork Outfitters Gary Loomis Tactical Series Surf Rods, from the 8-foot-6-inch MAG Light to the 10-foot-6-inch MAG Medium Heavy, are designed to tackle all of the extremes the world's oceans have to offer.

The 9-foot and 10-foot-6-inch rods have braided graphite reel seats ensuring a positive grip under the toughest conditions. These rods also feature tangle free guides with the first guide reversed to eliminate line tangles.

The 8-foot-6-inch MAG L has a little softer action and features EVA foam grips and foregrips for ultimate comfort.

A $7.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.

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.
