TFO’s Bluewater SG fly rod series combines a unique rod blank build with heavy-duty componentry to help any angler wrangle the largest saltwater fish. From Billfish to Marlin, this rod is built for big game with modified grips and an insanely strong butt section. Glass and Carbon Fiber combine to make the rod blank caster-friendly, durable, and lightweight - characteristics that are paramount in a bluewater rod. If you’re looking for a big rod to battle the largest fish on earth, this is the rod for you.
SG Hybrid Technology - TFO has designed the blank of the Bluewater SG to be both caster-friendly and incredibly strong. By combining carbon fiber and S-Glass construction, TFO has built a tip section that is caster-friendly with fast recovery speeds and a butt section that’s made for fighting large fish. The combination of glass and carbon fiber makes this blank one of the most progressive in contemporary fly fishing.
Aluminum Oxide Insert Stripping Guides - Full aluminum oxide insert guides add to the durability and corrosion-resistance of the Bluewater SG. These heavy-duty guides accommodate large bluewater fly lines for increased casting and fish-fighting performance on the water.
Aluminum Oxide Insert Snake Guides - The snake guides also come with aluminum oxide inserts and are built for saltwater performance. Snake guides are industry-accepted and time-proven.
Milled Aluminum w/Double Uplocking Component - The Bluewater SG has a heavy-duty milled aluminum reel seat that’s corrosion-resistant and stands up to wear and weathering. The double uplocking component anchors large bluewater saltwater reels to fight big fish. The Bluewater SG also comes with a couple of different grip options including composite cork split grips and a single lengthened composite cork fore-grip on larger rods.
Cordura Rod Tube - The TFO Bluewater SG comes in a Cordura rod tube to protect the rod during travel and transportation. Most TFO rods don’t come with rod tubes, however, TFO has included a rod tube in some of their latest rod models.
TFO Warranty - As of July 2019, TFO rods purchased from an authorized dealer have a no-fault lifetime warranty for the life of the registered owner. TFO will always repair or replace (at no cost to the customer) any rod with faulty workmanship or manufacturer defects. If your rod breaks or is damaged from normal wear and tear, TFO charges $35 for repairs, processing, shipping, etc.
