TFO has combined attributes of multiple rod series’ to create the Impact, a series designed for the everyman angler. This series features a wide variety of rod models for nearly every angling scenario and quality componentry at an affordable price. The rods’ slim profile make technical casting and distance casting equally as attainable and the versatility of the Impact makes it a great choice for novice and intermediate anglers alike.
Medium-Fast Action Blank - The medium-fast action blank of the Impact is smooth, strong and powerful. The blank action leads to a rod that’s caster friendly and extremely forgiving. Catering to a wide range of casting styles, the blank of the Impact also loads and unloads with maximum efficiency for accuracy when it matters. The blanks are matte black in color with black thread wraps and emerald trim.
Tactical Series Stripping Guides - TFO’s proprietary Tactical Series stripping guides are made for any fly line and large fish. These guides are durable and friction-minimizing for improved casting ability and effortless stripping power.
Chromium-Impregnated Stainless Snake Guides - The stainless chrome snake guides on the Impact are weatherproof and accommodate any fly line. These snake guides keep the Impact lightweight, functional, and durable.
Rosewood Insert w/Grey Anodized Uplocking Component - The smaller rod models have a rosewood reel seat with grey anodized aluminum componentry. The wood insert keeps the reel seat lightweight and functional.
Grey Anodized Aluminum and Graphite Insert w/Double Uplocking Component - On the heavier Impact rods, the reel seat is full grey anodized aluminum with a carbon fiber spacer. This minimizes saltwater corrosion and weathering. These reel seats are expertly designed to lock down large saltwater reels.
Rod Tube Not Included - The Impact doesn’t come with a rod tube. That being said, TFO Triangular rod tubes can be purchased separately to keep the Impact 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.
