Fantastic light spinning rod
September 25, 2016
I bought this rod to try ultralight spinning and it's a blast. It can throw a small spoon like a Mepps Little Wolf a mile with a good reel, and can tire out serious fish. I've taken several dorado with it (the fresh rwater southamerican salmonid, not the saltwater) around 6 pounds without a problem. I guess it works in the concept of a noodle rod, you can't really bring a strong fish in by force, but being a long, medium action rod it does suck up the fight, if you stand your ground using a nice amount of backbone it has the fish have a really hard time stripping line or spitting your hook, the rod protects the line and hookset a lot. It wouldnt be the best choice to pool feisty fish out ov heavy structure, but if you have rom to work its a delight, and you can cast it all day long. The one thing that doesnt work are the reel rings. I kept throwing my reel in the water till i ended taping a fuji ls6 reel seat to the handle. You could tape the reel directly yo the handle but this way it retains it's portability.
ProsAll I expected of the ultralight spinning concept
ConsThe goofy reel rings

A compromise travel rod - spinning and fly rod - has issues
March 8, 2016
GTS SF 802-4 (a light rod for trout, grayling, panfish, bass et c.) Not good (I returned it today) - the tip section is a fly rod tip section with snakes and a loop tip guide, the middle two pieces are spinning rod like with Fuji guides - the butt section is like a fly rod's (short) but with rings for variable positioning of the reel. It might be OK for fly fishing but the butt is too short to balance a spinning reel on - I have several 4-piece fly rods so this is no good to me. This rod is supposed to be a fly/spin tool but it is too compromised to be ideal for either function in my opinion. Will keep search for a longish 4 pc light spinning rod. This said - the other Temple Fork Rods I have are EXCELLENT - this one is an exception.
ProsIn a pinch, might be usable as either a fly and spinning rod in one item.
ConsThis rod is supposed to be a fly/spin tool but it is too compromised to be much good for either function in my opinion, due to the odd mixture of fly rod butt and tip sections, and spinning middle sections - when opening the rod bag it appears like you have got pieces of two different rods mixed up in the same package. I returned for store credit.
There are no questions or answers for this item.
