TFO Custom Rod Shop

News, Press Release — By on April 17, 2013 8:53 pm


Back at the 2012 IFTD in Reno (CLICK HERE to see show article) show I had a chance to spend 45mins with the guys at TFO learning about a new venture the “Custom Rod Shop”. A rod offering of custom grips, seat, guides, and fighting butt, but the magic is in the blank. They take a production blank and fine tune them through a Blueprinting process…

“In addition to cosmetic enhancements with guide wraps, reel seats, and ergonomic grip modifications, the blank undergoes a blueprinting process closely akin to engine refinements in the hands of master mechanics. after a blank is rolled it is subjected to a unique blueprinting operation where the energy output is measured inch by inch along its entire length. High and low energy spots are detected and eliminated. The end product is a blank that is in perfect balance. Its mechanical efficiency has been tuned to its absolute level of performance and that translates into a casting stroke that requires less energy input from the caster. For any given distance the rod works more and the caster works less. It is pure casting efficiency.”

After some time at the casting pond… I was SOLD. A truly great performing and casting rod, with custom features and mid level production price.



Full Press Release-
TFO Custom Rod Shop
Fly-fishing with Temple Fork Outfitters just got better than ever with the introduction of TFO Custom Rods.

Similar to the aftermarket modifications sought after by car enthusiasts and racing buffs who want the maximum output from their ride, TFO is now proud to offer a number of customized options to further enhance the casting performance of a select series of rods in our stellar fly rod lineup. The casting characteristics of our production rods have earned the reputation of being second to none. But we know some of you out there demand even more and despite the proven excellence of our rods there is always room for further refinement.

In addition to cosmetic enhancements with guide wraps, reel seats and ergonomic grip modifications, the blank undergoes a blueprinting operation closely akin to engine refinements in the hands of master mechanics. After a blank is rolled it is subjected to a unique blueprinting operation where the energy output is measured inch by inch along its entire length. High and low energy spots are detected and eliminated. The end product is a blank that is in perfect balance. Its mechanical efficiency has been tuned to its absolute level of performance and that translates into a casting stroke that requires less energy input from the caster. For any given distance the rod works more and the caster works less. It is pure casting efficiency.

These custom options are geared toward the discerning angler who wants to step up to a stick that’s been tweaked to an ultra level of refinement. Cast one and you’ll know what it’s like to surpass your expectations of how a rod should perform.
