Default Re: Best 12wt Flyrod?

We've been outfitting clients and guides (we're outfitters not guides) with tarpon sticks for over 15 years. (Okay personally, I've only been doing it for 7) Over that time we've learned a lot. What we reccommend currently is based on the client's financial status. Low end: the TFO TiCrX....hands down the toughest, and the best warranty in the business. Top end Sage Xi3. Always multipiece models for traveling. As far as breaking rods.....we've seen them ALL break....even 16wt rods. Its almost always user error....like letting it bounce around unprotected during the ride to and from the flats.

Just as important is the reel. If there is a critter that swims more capable of burning out a drag than a big Silver King (Okay maybe a Mako Shark)........
