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 may apply to these items as they ship in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.

TFO 10€™6 Great Rod
10€™6 is a great rod. Lightweight, strong, and casts a wide variety of weights. On top of these, the rod has a great finish and is easily the best looking rod I own.

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
ProsLightweight and strong
Consonly made for spinning reels no casting version available

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.

light , almost too light?

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.

will the Penn Slammer 3 6500 be a good fit for the 10'6" or 11ft?
Yes. Both the 5500 and 6500 would balance well with those models.

Can you recommend a reel that would be a good match for the 9' TFO? I'm guessing my Penn Clash 5000 might be too heavy.
A 5000 size Penn Clash would actually be a great match for the 9' model.
