Default TFO Jim Teeny 10' 7wt Review

I have had the rod out a number of times and I love the feel and action of the rod. The rod will be used 90% of the time at Pyramid lake in Nevada It seems to have more of a fast action and shoots line out like a rocket. My only complaint is the tip piece has come off more than once when casting. I make sure that each piece of the rod is put together straight and tight but after a few hours of continuous casting it will come apart. I don't know if this happens with others who owns this rod or just me but it's a little bit of a hastle when you have to stop what your doing to fix the problem.

Digger,
If you continue to have issues with that ferrule, contact TFO. It has a great customer service department.

You can also rub the ferrule with a candle until a little wax builds up. It keeps it nice and snug but it will pop off easily when it comes time to break the rod down.
