Anyone have any experience with TFO rods?

I was looking at either getting a TFO Jim Teeny 8wt or a TFO Professional 8wt for Salmon fishing.

i have a ticr x in 8wt. it is a fast action. i am starting to like it more and more every day. i have had no problems with it. i have not tried any other tfo's as of yet. i do like the action in the wind.

I have a TFO ticrX in an 8 wt, and a TFO pro in a 4 weight.


The ticrX is a pretty fast action rod, the pro is about a moderate. If you are going to be making longer casts, i would probably opt for the ticr X over the pro, however if you are going to be making shorter casts, the pro is definently the way to go, it would be more fun to fight fish on, and less tiring.


I have no experience with the Jim Teeny.

I just purchased a 2 wt TFO Signature series to use on small local creeks. Bass Pro Shops recommended this rod after I explained to them what I was looking for. The reasonable price and lifetime warranty was also a big factor. I've used it on 3 trips so far and i'm very happy with the performance of the rod.

Mike. I have a 8' 6' 5wt and 9' 6wt in the TFO Professional series. I also have an 8'9" 5wt in the Finesse series. These are great travel rods and you can't beat the price. I bought both my sons 8'6" 5wt Pros as entry level rods, but after having tried them, I bought the above rods for myself. They all cast well, and the Finesse works especially well for dry flies. The 6 wt goes with me every year to Montana, and handles both the wind and large trout well.Hope this helps.

I already stated that I bought the 9' 8wt. Jim teeny Rod, I also used it a couples times for salmon runs. Great rod! But I am now looking for a good pike or muskie outfit.
