Default Re: TFO BVK or Mangrove?

Go to warmfly.blogspot.com. There was a review on the Mangrove. Tom Jindra who is a TFO rep in LA posted his comments.

I have not cast the Mangrove, but have cast the BVK. It is light, but did not seem to have the backbone I was looking for. As some have mentioned the BVK does have a tendancy to break. You might want to go to tforods.com and look at the "presentation, power and lifting charts" for both rods. I go to the Florida Gulf Coast once a year and fish in the bay and in the gulf. If I was needing a new rod between the two I would go with the Mangrove. In fact I hope to cast one while I am there in Oct.
