Gary's Tactical Series Crankbait Rods
Crank Bait Rods

Lighter. More Sensitive. Affordable.

The crankbait rod loads evenly from butt to tip providing the softer, deeper bending action necessary for wide-billed, water displacing crankbaits.

The 7'0" model is ideal for crankbaits that dive 10-feet or less.

The 7'9" model is adapt at fishing wide-billed, deep diving cranks that dive over 10-feet.

By utilizing a new proprietary scrim in conjunction with TFO’s high modulus carbon fiber blank material, Gary was able to save weight and increase sensitivity without sacrificing strength. GTS blanks are tastefully finished; simply polished, with a thin layer of matte clear coat to enhance the natural luster of the fibers, TFO’s trademark Color ID Split grip is further complemented by a two-piece reel seat and a natural cork ring split grip.

GTS rods are topped with TFO’s proprietary Tactical Series guides, machined stainless steel inserts are super-hard chrome anodized then swaged into a chromium-impregnated stainless frame. What does this all mean? Super hard, super slick, saltwater safe and no more lost fishing time due to lost inserts...and they’re 30 percent lighter than standard SiC guides.

“Good rods can be made out of anything from bamboo to modern carbon fiber. But a good rod must have the right length, power and action to do a specific job. To make a good rod better is to make it lighter and more sensitive without sacrificing durability."
