The TFO Clouser is touted as a rod that’s “lighter, stronger, and faster” than TFO rods of the past. These rods are made for large flies, windy conditions, and both freshwater and saltwater environments. TFO built this rod for optimized power applications without sacrificing versatility. Whether you’re targeting large trout or large Bonefish, the Clouser has a rod model for you. And, at its price-point, it’s hard to find a better rod for technical situations on the market.
Proprietary TiCr Blank Coating w/Fast Action Design - TFO’s proprietary TiCr blank coating helps protect the rod from splintering when hit by heavy flies. The coating also increases rod strength and durability. A fast-action build makes this rod perfect for throwing difficult long-distance casts in all conditions. Add a strong butt section for increased lifting power and a modern rod taper and this rod is one of the best saltwater fly rods on the market at its price-point.
Tactical Series Stripping Guides - TFO’s proprietary Tactical Series stripping guides are made for all fly lines and large fish. These guides are durable and friction-minimizing for improved casting ability and effortless stripping power.
Ultra-Lightweight Chromium-Impregnated Stainless Snake Guides - Ultra-lightweight snake guides contribute to the light overall weight of the Clouser. These guides are also stainless for increased durability in saltwater environments.
Milled Aluminum w/Double Uplocking Component - The Clouser 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 freshwater and saltwater reels to fight big fish. The Clouser also comes with a full-wells grip and fighting butt for improved fish-fighting capabilities.
Rod Tube Not Included - The Clouser doesn’t come with a rod tube. That being said, TFO Triangular rod tubes can be purchased separately to keep the Clouser safe during transportation and travel.
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.
