Temple Fork Outfitters Traveler Rods are the long-awaited quality multi-piece conventional rod that boasts the effortless action of your favorite one-piece rod. This series of seven-foot, 3-piece spinning and casting rods are the globe-trotting angler's dream. Mirroring the look and feel of the legendary Tactical family of fishing rods, and crafted with the guidance of one the greatest world-traveling anglers of all time, Larry Dahlberg, you can be sure you're holding nothing less than the best.

The handsomely finished non-glare sky blue blanks are fitted with premium cork grips, TFO's exclusive skeletal reel seats and topped with Fuji's new Fazlite Corrosion Control K-Frame guides, to make them safe for either freshwater or saltwater environments. These incredibly light and sensitive, fast-action high-performance fishing tools are crafted through a combination of IM carbon fiber and a proprietary light weight scrim. A snug and seamless fit is ensured with the use of a precision CNC sanding process, in which the re-enforced ferrules are fitted to 1/10,000 of an inch.

Includes rod sock and packaged in an airline overhead friendly, 32 in. hard nylon lined rod tube.

Light and Sensitive
May 3, 2020
I purchased the medium weight travel rod. Super light and sensitive. Feels like a 1-piece rod. Exactly what I was looking for. Caught a 4-pound large mouth bass on my third cast with this rod. The "feel" of the rod is awesome.
ProsLight, sensitive, alignment dots

Great Travel Rod

Bought the H spinning rod and used it on a trip to the Dominican Republic paired with a 4000 stradic and powerpro. Very sensitive, great feel. Caught snook and jacks. Rod considerably outperformed another competitor we had as well.
ProsLightweight Sensitive Does not feel like a 3 piece
ConsDifficult to take apart once together (more of a pro than a con, rod does not come apart in use)

This is a sensitive rod that casts great. Can’t believe it’s a three piece till you’re in the airport. So easy to travel with. Great value and convenient.
ProsSensitive Packs easy. Nice fit and finish.
Very nice travel rod.

I ordered this for a small mouth trip requiring travel to Lake St Clair. The rod is well made and the grip is very comfortable. The case is very nice which is an improvement over previous rods that didn't have one.

Would the Stradic FL 5000 match well with TFO 7’ H travel spinning rod for Southeast US larger fish species?
1 Answer
Yes the 7ft H model would pair nicely with the 5000 Stradic. Both being more than capable for handling larger inshore species in the southeast.

I am interested in a TFO Traveler rod and I would love a recommendation.  When I travel, I typically target inshore mangrove snapper, sheepshead, reds, speckled trout.  I fish from both pier and boat.  Would you recommend medium or medium light in the spinning rod?  
1 Answer
The Temple for 7'0" medium casting will be a great fit for a casting setup. 

If you prefer spinning rods I would go with the 7'0" medium spinner. 

I would go with a medium-strength to give you more backbone against the snappers and the sheep more specifically.
