Gary's Tactical Series Pitching Rods
Pitching Rods

Lighter. More Sensitive. Affordable.

Pitching rods are very stiff to increase accuracy and pendulum swings.

The action of the GTS pitching rod is extra fast so anglers can achieve quick, forceful hook sets. The overall stiffness aides and hauling heavy fish out of thick, matted vegetation. Both the length and power  of the GTS Pitching Rids are ideal for heavier Carolina Rigs, football-head jigs.

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% lighter than standard SiC guides.

Availible in 7’5” and 7’9” models, with a split-cork grip.

“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."
