  1. Default Tfo mini mag 6-8

    Any users using this rod? Very curious about casting distance, since casting from the bank. Would be used for Pike.
    Currently use a clouser ten weight, but im very interested in this short rod.
    Edit: the sage smallmouth would also be a contender.
    Thanks

    I've got both Mini Mags and love them to bits. Love 'em so much, I just bought a second 8-10wt version.

    The 6-8 is really an 8wt or 9wt rod though. The sub-title on the label says 200 - 300gn, and by the AFTMA standards, those weights indicate an 8-10wt rod. I usually cast 8 or 9 weight lines on mine.

    On the 8-10wt mini mage (300-400gn), I cast heavy "10 to 12wt lines" (Rio OBS 10 and 12wt).

    Casting distance is fine. Maybe 20' shorter than with a 9' rod at most. However, the shorter rods feel lighter, so you can cast all day with them.

    These rods are my go-to rods from the kayak, but I use them just about everywhere that big fish might be found.

    The only way you'll be disappointed with the 6-8wt is if you think you're buying a rod that will load up with a 6wt or 7wt line.

    Cheers,
    Graeme

    Thanks, I do a lot of bass fishing for what I call "medium-sized" bass in the 4-8 pound class and I don't have a fly rod that I feel can dig them out of the weeds. I'd like to do some comparison shopping even though I really like my TFO equipment.

    Who else makes rods that are grossly over/under marked on line weights? Just about everyone.
