Temple Fork Outfitters GIS Series Spinning Rod Specs

My TFO GIS rod is 7’9″ and is medium power, but these rods come in multiple lengths and powers.

The lengths of these rods range from 6’9″ to 7’11”.

You can find this model rod in both spinning and baitcasting models.

Pros Of The TFO GIS Series Spinning Rod
1. Light Weight
2. Nice Cork
3. Rod Flex
4. Longer Butt

Cons Of The TFO GIS Series Spinning Rod
1. Price
2. Handle
3. Hook Keeper

This is a high-quality rod that really does have a nice on-the-water performance and feel to it.

However, I do remain concerned about the price of this rod and wonder if it’s worth $80 more than the rod that is one level down.

Remember, all our reviews are independent and objective. We’d love to hear your feedback on this rod as well.

Salty Angler says:

The TFO professional was $120 I believe so you’re looking at about $50 price difference. It does look great for casting in the flats and making super long casts or fishing with a bit heavier baits

Robert Schneider says:

How well lined up are the spines on those? I have an older tfo signature series and the spine on it is about 10-15 degrees off. Not too bad, but for the price I’d expect it to be a bit closer.
