Gary's Tactical Series Inshore Rods
GIS-Family

Reel Seat

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

Handle

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

Blank

Blanks are vibrant aqua-blue with Fuji® Alconite guides for maximum durability and corrosion resistance.

Lighter. More Sensitive. Affordable.

Tailing reds are no match; Snook may as well stay hidden in the mangroves, stripers will be subdued and tarpon get a lesson in respect with the NEW TFO GIS inshore family of rods.

The 18-model family, (both spinning and casting) offers the premier technique specific actions and durability to get the job done.

GIS rods are topped with Fuji® “K” series concept guides with Alconite inserts and come in a vibrant aqua-blue colored blank with matching thread wraps.

Although labeled as an inshore family of rods, these models feature crossover actions and configurations for any freshwater application.

SWC/ SWS 693-1:

Fast action rods that load further down the tip increasing casting efficiency with lighter lures and in sight- casting situations. A great medium-light powered rod with a split grip, cork handle for speckled trout, redfish and flounder.

SWC/ SWS 694-1:

The all-purpose, split-grip rod for the flats or deep wading. Excels at throwing surface and sub-surface baits, with the ideal length and balance to achieve maximum casting efficiency. Perfect for pounding plugs along the mangroves, chasing fish around pillars and docks or chucking Corky’s along the Texas coast.

SWC 6104-1:

Based off of the popular GTS SHS rod, the SWC 6104-1 has a fast, stiff tip. This action adds movement to soft plastics with minimal effort, best suited for jig-heads with small soft plastics and spooks/jerkbaits with a single hook.

SWC 704-1 and 705-/ SWS 704-1 and 705-1:

These full-cork grip rods cover a wide variety of scenarios. Perfect for bait under a popping cork or a buck tail rod for snook, redfish and tarpon in the estuaries or along the beach.

SWC 734-1:

A great multi-purpose casting rod for throwing smaller swimbaits, spoons, and top water lures. Also ideal for deep wading or fishing out of a kayak or SUP where mobility is limited, but accuracy is paramount.

SWC 793-1 and 794-1/ SWS 793-1, 794-1 and 795-1:

The medium fast actions of these longer models are designed to achieve maximum casting distance in the most efficient manner, while ensuring a solid hook-set when fishing lures with treble hooks. Want to rip a Rat-L-Trap® along the jetty? Need a few extra feet of distance out of that cracked crab or sand flea on the flats? These rods are up for the challenge, with enough power in the butt to haul in that big jack or bluefish.

SWS 7116-1 and 7117-1:

Pick your power and throw large baits the distance, with the confidence to fight that beast back to the boat or shore. Chasing crashing birds along the surf and need to get that extra few feet? Grab a Pencil Popper® or X-Rap® Subwalk and the 7116-1 to cover some serious water. Both models are perfect for throwing large artificial lures as well as bait for jacks, tarpon and cobia.
