Gary's Tactical Series Inshore Rods
Inshore Rods

Reel Seat

The Inshore rods feature oversized reel seats to accommodate oversized spinning reels.

Handle

Rods are finished with solid fore- and aft- grips made from premium cork with burl accents.

Blank

Blanks are matte black and topped with Tactical Series guides; machined stainless steel inserts are super hard chrome anodized then swaged into chromium-impregnated stainless frame.

Lighter. More Sensitive. Affordable.

Sensing a need for a powerful, yet soft-tipped rod for large inshore species, we created the 7116 Mag Heavy rod in early 2012. The overwhelming success and popularity of this rod encouraged us to create an entire line-up of inshore rods to cover everything from speckled trout to tarpon.

GTS Inshore rods have plenty of power to subdue the toughest inshore species with enough forgiveness in the tip to throw softer, more delicate baits with ease. The blanks are matte black and finished with solid grips and fore grips made from premium cork with burl accents. The Inshore rods feature oversized Tactical Series Guides and larger reel seats to accommodate oversized spinning reels.

“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."
