Albies marauding bay anchovies at Harkers Island, striped bass crushing pods of bunker on the Cape, or hundred-pound tarpon cartwheeling their way into a school of mullet in southern Florida, no matter what blitzing situation you find yourself in, there’s no doubt that fast reaction time and a rod that can deliver accurate presentations and long casts are two integral parts to success. With TFO’s all-new Blitz series of rods, they provide you with a fast-action rod with medium stiffness that can hit those targets in half-a-moment’s-notice while also handling any line and fly in your arsenal–an excellent tool for those days when the fish are up, then down, then up…then down again and you need to react quickly. TFO makes this series of rods in line weights 6 through 12, allowing you to chase anything from large pelagics to smaller species. Utilizing TFO’s Axiom technology, the Blitz is constructed from a high-modulus carbon material with an embedded Kevlar double-helix for exceptional recovery and durability. TFO also incorporates high-quality componentry such as RECOIL guides and a fully anodized reel seat alongside convenient features like alignment dots and a built-in hook keeper on the reel seat. Blitzes are one of the most exciting experiences in fly fishing, and when you see the birds start to hover low and the water looks nervous, get ready to hook up as soon as the blitz commences with TFO’s new Blitz series of rods. 


High-Modulus Carbon Fiber w/ Axiom Technology- Lightweight, responsive, durable, and designed with incredible recovery, TFO’s Blitz Rods are crafted from a high-modulus carbon fiber with an embedded Kevlar double-helix. This construction ensures that your rod is ready for anything that gets thrown its way, while its fast-action provides crisp casting and all of the power that you need to deliver long casts accurately while maintaining the strength you need when tugging on a trophy fish. 

With a deep turquoise color that’s complemented by dark blue thread wraps and silver tipping, the Blitz is as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional, and whether you’re wading a flat looking for tails or drifting in a boat waiting for the next eruption, this is a color that looks great doing it all. 



RECOIL Stripping Guides - Some of the highest-quality guides on the market, TFO uses RECOIL guides by REC on their Blitz Rods. Not only are these guides super lightweight and corrosion-resistant, but they also provide unmatched durability–whether you’re dropping your rod in the parking lot before you caffeinated or dealing with a harsh tangle while an albie rips line, these guides hold their shape and stand up to it all.   

Chromium-Impregnated Stainless Steel Snake Guides - A super lightweight addition that provides excellent performance, the chromium-impregnated stainless steel snake guides on the Blitz are perfect for long days in the salt. These snake guides are anti-corrosive and have very minimal weight, so you can handle those ten-hour shifts with ease. 


Reel Seat

Anodized Aluminum Reel Seat - With a fully anodized reel seat, TFO keeps things nice and light in your hand while maximizing durability. A double uplocking configuration keeps your reel locked in no matter what, and the anodized aluminum build ensures that you’re never dealing with corrosion after long days in the saltwater. 


Rod Tube

Whether you’re hitting the airport terminal or taking a bumpy route to your favorite flat, TFO’s rod sock and tube are sure to keep your Blitz safe and sound. For fast identification, TFO also labels the sock and tube. 



As of July 2023, TFO offers a warranty that covers defects in material and workmanship. Should you break or damage your rod due to an accident or typical wear and tear, TFO offers repair or a replacement for a fee. TFO also offers replacement sections at a fee for a faster alternative.
