Good one on Temple Forks Outfitters!

Temple Forks outfitters (one of the forum sponsors) just took care of me and I thought I should mention it. I had their 4 pc. 7 wt. from a couple of years ago. Well I broke it in Maine last summer (4" off the tip). I waited till the end of the fall season here in New England and shipped it to their shop in Texas. With no questions asked they sent me a brand new one in about 2-3 weeks. And the new one says Lefty Kreh on it! So, although my replacement rod is the same level in their pricing structure, I believe it is a better rod since Lefty has been helping them out. Thanks TFO!

I've been hearing good things about their customer service as well, and your post gives me even more confidence that things will go well should I need their help.

I`ve had TFO`s since they first came out and I now oun 3 and plan on adding a fourth by spring. Thier service has been first rate, even when I broke a tip at the casting clav by jamming the rod into my case. FWIW they have my highest praise.

You paid the $25 turnaround fee though, didn't you? I ask because you didn't mention it and I'm under the assumption that this is the cost of a replacement when you break a TFO rod, yes?

Santa brought me the 12-6 6Wt summer spey rod. Delightfull! Tested several line, and a few more to go, but the Wlf. TT 6wt was the best for casting/mending. You will be "limited" in the length of the cast to 50-70 feet, but this will cover the majority of your low water work.


Did hook up with a late summer run (for about 45 seconds until a bad knot in the leader gave up the ghost) and IT WAS A GAS! Redshead may have a few left at about $200 a pop. For the rod, a very good deal.

I thought it was $20 but it may have gone up.So what , I had the rod back in 9 days, good as new. IMHO every bit as good as rods costing 3 times more.

Steve - I was there when you did the deed. The way I remember it going down was, remove brand spankin' new rod from case to test at the casting clave and then the air turned blue. What model is that rod?

Glad to hear there is such good service from TFO I am entertaining the idea of a 10wt for the boat. My current boat beater road is made by another manufacturer and I've broken it 4 times, 3 my fault once on a fish(non high sticking). I was happy with the service but have always had to pay a $25 fee to cover the shipping and handling.

I just experienced a 9 week turnaround for $40 plus shipping for one snake guide from another company that I did consider "top-of-the-line".

Yes I paid the $25 bucks. Didn't bother me though.

Jim, that rod was what is now the Pro series. I got a TiCr 9 last year and like it very much, I`ll get a 10 by spring unless they come out with a 10 in the TiCrX. Waiting for Marlboro to talk with the rep.

I have always had my rods shipped back with 2 -3 days of when they receive it (from tracking info I know when they get it, tho it usually doesnt get in the system till about the 2nd or third day.

I fish ALOT, and thus I break alot. People make fun of me for it all the time, and they are right. But at least that makes me knowledgable about warranties and tfo is in the top of the class.

I bought the TFO "Professional Series" 9' 9wt 4 piece for about $150.00. It is a great rod and I was very impressed. It has a similar feel to my old 9' 9wt Sage RPLX. I threw it with a 10wt line and it has a great action. Not too fast or slow. I can't build a quality rod for much less than that.
I would recommend it to anyone, as either a primary or back up rod.
Does anyone have any experience with their 12 model?

that sounds curiously familiar to my experience. i knew going in it was going to take a while, tho, as that's what was stated in their literature. oh well.
