Gary's Tactical Series Drop Shot Rods
Drop Shot Rods

Lighter. More Sensitive. Affordable.

The Drop Shot rods have very soft tips allowing anglers to detect subtle strikes encountered when fishing finesse baits. These rods are great for fishing square bills and small spinnerbaits.

This family of rods is the perfect tool not only for drop-shotting, or fishing weightless plastics, but also with sqaurebills and small spinnerbaits.

The 6'3" casting model is great for jerkbaits, spy-baits and small topwater lures.

The 6'9" models are ideal for shorter casts and precise lure placement.

The 7'3" models have superb tip feel, for light tippets and small, light wire hooks. The longer lengths allow for distance casts and long, sweeping hooksets.

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 Bass 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 great 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."
