Gary's Tactical Series Mangrove Rods
Mangrove Rods

Lighter. More Sensitive. Affordable.

Designed by Flip Pallot for the hardcore inshore angler, these rods will give the perfect combination of presentation and power—and stand up to the most harsh conditions.

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 and 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 complimented 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% 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."
