Thread Details

I'd posted this a few months back. Resurrecting since they now have 7' and 7 1/2' casting rods which they didn't have then that some were looking for along with some other added sizes/weights.

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.

Detailed specs vary by model, general description follows:

With the right length, power and action, Temple Fork Outfitters' Gary Loomis Freshwater casting rod is the perfect addition to your fishing-equipment quiver. The SIC guides and Portuguese-cork handle enhance every day spent on the water.

Nice op, snagged a few in December when you posted it. Grabbing a few more this round. Ill say again TFO is the absolute best company I've ever dealt with, fishing or otherwise. When I snapped a rod due to a steelhead and a reel issue while on the salmon river in upstate New York they contacted a local dealer and had me a free replacement within an hour. Great quality rods, I can't recommend them enough.

Yeah, I'd say that an hour is pretty good response. lol

I've not had to deal with them for anything so far. Glad to hear that they took care of you.

Expired. That one was supposed to be good through 3/11 but they end early at times for various reasons. There will be another soon. I see some 20% off and other codes but no 35% off or better which work on this and are active now. I'll update next time I get/see one.

You might sign up for their email and they'll send codes a few times every week. Easy to unsubscribe when you get tired of it or use a scrap account.

It shocked me, they contacted a tackle shop right in town and they had it ready right when I walked in the door. When I wrote in a thank you/ testimonial email a week later a box full of hats, shirts, and other swag showed up at my door. I mostly fly fish and you can't touch a rod of the TFO quality anywhere near their price range. I've fought and landed fish way above the rods weight class many times.
