Temple Fork Surf Rods are light weight and powerful thanks to modern carbon fiber technology, but their price won't break the bank.

The 1065 is probably the choice for all-around NorthEast surfcasting from plugs to eels. Might be a little heavy for the lightest plugs and a little light for the very biggest but otherwise you'll almost always have the right stick in hand. The 1106 has become very popular at the Cape Cod Canal and is optimized for throwing bigger plugs and bucktails. It's VERY powerful and as a result doesn't work so well with smaller lures or eels. The 1102 is a favorite of anglers who love to throw SP Minnows, Redfins, Sluggos, live eels, and other lures in the 1/2 to 2 ounce range. The 902 is another great all-around rod, perfect for building a compact but powerful surf outfit. TFO rates it 1 to 5 oz, but we feel 3.5 ounces is about it's max.

Rubber X-Grip helps you keep a firm hold even in cold conditions or with fish slime on your hands. Fuji double-foot KW anti-tangle guides are perfect for modern braided lines and saltwater. They also help keep the overall weight of these rods nice and low for all day or night fishing adventures.

TFO GIS Surf Rods are consdered "Magnum action" - which TFO calls fast and stiff. They feature a 70/30 ferrule split and all rods can handle both spinning and conventional reels.

All TFO products have a no-fault lifetime warranty for the life of the registered owner. This warranty is exclusively between TFO and the registered owner of the product.

I recommend this product
One of the best available!

I own 2 GIS surf rods and will continue to buy TFO throughout my fishing career! These are highly overlooked rods because they don't have a household name like ODM, Lamiglass, St. Croix or G. Loomis! These rods are built incredibly well and have great Fuji components! TFO also has a great customer service policy. I would 100% buy again, and would 100% recommend to a friend!

great rod for the money

Great rod for the money with an excellent warranty. I had to deal with tfo customer service and it was excellent. Rod casts incredible and is good build quality. I would recommend it to a friend. Only draw back is it that it isn t as great of a pencil popper rod as I would have liked but it gets it done.
