TFO 12wt Rod & Reel Combo by Gavin Platz
Gavin has assembled this BIG Combo for the hardcore angler.
The kit includes:
- TFO Mangrove Rod
- TFO 425 Reel
- Scientific Angler 50lb Backing
- RIO Mainstream Saltwater WF12F Line
About the Rod
Built with the hardcore angler in mind, the Mangrove series fly rods utilize our proprietary TiCr blank coating, which helps protect the rod from the occasional collision with a weighted fly, and our durable, proprietary Tactical Series™ guides, which are braid and saltwater safe. The unique non-glare chestnut-colored blank features a full wells grip with an instant rod weight burled cork ID system, fighting butts on the 6- through 10- and 12-weight, and cleverly machined hook keeps on each side of the aluminum up-locking reel seat.
About the Reel
TFO’s Large Arbor reels are machined from aircraft-grade aluminum and offer a state-of-the-art draw bar/carbon fiber disk drag. Three bearings give our reel its smooth-as-silk spin, and a one-way roller bearing makes it easily convertible from left hand to right hand retrieve.
The TFO Large Arbor fly reels are perfect for both freshwater and hardcore saltwater use. Lightweight and powerful, they are exactly what you want on your rod when you hook that fish of a lifetime.
