Sierra Trading Post has the Temple Fork Outfitters (TFO) Gary Loomis Signature Series Fishing Rods for $69.95 - 35% = $45.47. Shipping is free if you order via their Android app, otherwise ~$8 to me. Same rods usually run ~$99 most places.
Use code JED3640B
Just to be clear, these are not Loomis rods. They're TFO rods that Loomis helped design.
Pretty decent rods overall. I have a few of them. My only knock against them would be that they're a little on the heavy side, Not terrible, just not the lightest. As examples, my 7' M casting rod is 4.7 oz. A 6'6" MH about the same, maybe a tenth less. Haven't weighed the spinning rod but I'd say that it's a little under those, probably around 4 oz.
