The Finesse Glass rod from TFO is made for the angler with a slow casting stroke and optimized for delicate presentations. This short-range trout or panfish rod comes in two rod models, a 7’ ¾ wt and a 7’ 6” ⅘ wt, both perfect for small creeks or ponds. Minimalist design keeps these rods affordable without sacrificing performance so you can get the most for the least. If you’re a fiberglass fanatic, you’re going to want to add one of these to your arsenal.
Unidirectional S Glass Foundation - The blank of the Finesse Glass utilizes a unidirectional S Glass blank foundation to optimize smoothness and accuracy. This contemporary fiberglass technology shapes a rod that’s responsive and delicate at close ranges. These rods are made for light line applications and the rod blank powers their efficiency and finesse.
Stripping Guide - The Finesse Glass has one stripping guide. This stripping guide accommodates any fly line and allows line to shoot through the rod effortlessly in all angling scenarios.
Hard Chrome Snake Guides - Hard chrome snake guides add simple functionality to the Finesse Glass. These guides are used by many major rod manufacturers for their simple, low-friction design and rugged durability.
Burled Wood Insert w/Uplocking Component - The reel seat on the TFO Finesse Glass includes a burled wood insert and anodized single uplocking componentry. These simple reel seats keep the rod lightweight and affordable. A reversed half wells grip made with quality cork adds to the rod’s trout-centered design.
Cordura Rod Tube - The TFO Finesse Glass 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.
