TFO Rod: TFO Lefty Kreh TiCr X
The evolution of the Lefty Kreh TiCr X Series has been fascinating. Imagine Lefty Kreh taking a prototype and saying "this is a nice rod but..." Then imagine new mandrels and as many as 6 prototypes later having him say, "PERFECT!" Lefty designed the TiCr X Series to be a powerful angling tool. Rod weights 5-8 are designed to present flies at distant targets. Rod weights 9-12 have the power to launch larger flies and to lift an angry fish out of the depths. The reserve power in the TiCr X Series give these rods the ability to carry a lot of line in the air and can easily be overlined for close-in work. The X rod's blue finish springs to life in a little sunlight, while the Flor grade cork, oversized titanium oxide stripping guides, and uplocking reel seat with cushioned hoods top off this ultimate package of form and function.
These rods are equipped with a fighting butt and feature full wells grips and channel lock sliding rear hoods with double locking rings. Oversized titanium oxide first stripping guides start with a #20 on the 6-, 7-, and 8- and #24 on the 9-weight through 12-weight.
"WOW!!!!! This rod throws a line as flat as a billiard table with a loop you can throw through a screen door. I would certainly rate this one of the very best 8-weight rods I have ever cast. For anyone who likes a fast-action rod—this does it in spades."
