Trevala Jigging Casting Rods Feature Details
  • Shimano TC4 Construction
    Shimano has engineered the new responsive TC4 Construction material to elevate your fishing experience. The TC4 Construction material wraps a double inner layer of advanced, dynamic T Glass with an inner and outer spiral of high modulus graphite. This breakthrough in design construction results in an extremely durable, crisp, yet lightweight rod.
  • Fuji Concept Alconite Guides
    A very strong and durable material, Alconite is the latest in a long line of ceramic rings developed by Fuji. Alconite is so durable it can be made thinner than any other ring, so strong it will hold up to all kinds of fishing demands. Alconite has an 80% greater compression strength and is 20% lighter than aluminum oxide, making it one of the toughest rings used for fishing, as well as one of the lightest.
  • Fuji Hardloy Guides
    The Hardloy guide is Fujiís most popular guide and is produced from a special blend of high grade aluminum oxide. All Hardloy guides are diamond polished for decreased line wear and permanently mounted to the frame. This results in increased performance, corrosion resistance and greater heat dissipation.
  • Fuji Reel Seat
    Built to last Fuji reel seats are designed with graphite nylon bodies, exclusive S-4 Stainless Steel hoods, with lined cushioned inserts to offer a lightweight reel seat with superior strength. Uniform design for increased comfort and self aligned hoods provide a solid lockdown on your reel foot that will never back off while fishing.

Great Rod
I paired this rod with my Penn Fathom 12. It is an absolutely awesome combo for the fish that I use it for. I use 30 pound braid on it. I use it for Mangrove Snapper, Grunts, Black Seabass, Porgies, Triggerfish, Flounder, and Grouper. It is a great combo. The Trevala has lots of power for the bigger fish and is lots of fun to use.

excellent deep water bottom-fishing rod
I have two of these, and also a TVC66MH2. These are used for bottom fishing for large cod in 'deep' (150-400') water near Newfoundland and they are superbly up to the task. They are incredibly powerful rods relative to their light weight, great for budging large fish off the bottom and pumping them up to the boat. After several years of rough use they still look like new - a testament to their durability. I have equipped the rods with Daiwa Saltist 2 Speed lever drag reels (STTLD20-2SPD and STTLD30-2SPD) and a similar AVET SX 6/4 2-speed reel. Highly recommended.
ProsExcellent power rod for deep jigging with heavy lures and heavy fish.

These rods are by far some of the best rods on the market. I've never had a problem with anything on these rods. I caught my personal best striper and tog on these rods. Pair these rods with an Avet SX or SXJ and you have one of the best setups for a reasonable price.

Great rods
To date I have purchased 7 of these rods and have matched them with both torsa and talica reels. They are very light but also very strong. We use them for trolling, chuncking and jigging tuna. They are light enough to hold all day long and strong enough to beat 200 lb big eye tuna. The work best if kept to a 45 degree angle.
Proslight, powerful and durable. Good warranty

Best Jigging rod out there ...
I matched the Shimano Torium 16 to this rod and makes a perfect setup for deep jigging or bottom fishing. Have tried a couple Tevala jigging rods and they are the go-to for the application. In general I am a huge St. Croix fan for my other rods, however for jigging nothing beats this line-up.

a little heavier than anticipated
The TVC70L is a nice rod but it is definitely heavier than anticipated for the lower jig-head weights that are in the specified range. There is a good amount of padding on the butt that feel is also not great. Other than those gripes... its a Trevala so nothing bad can really be said.

1 Answers
The two piece model (TVC66M2) does not come with a rod tube. It is a 70/30 split and the longest section measures 55 in. This may be a little too long for an airline carry-on. I'd suggest contacting the airline in which you are flying to inquire about the size limits.

Have a Torium 16 reel. Would you recommend the 6'6'' Med or the 7'0" Med/light rod for New Jersey fluke and blues?
1 Answers
The 6'6" Medium would be best for the Torium 16 and the better choice for wreck fishing for bluefish and flounder. The 6'6" has a little more backbone to be able to handle fishing heavier buck tails and deeper water.

what is the diff between the f series and the others does the line cut into the grip
1 Answers
The F series uses higher end components and has a different grip. The line should not cut into the grip when you are fighting a fish.
