Flip Pallot, fly fishing icon and pioneer, shares his expertise and rod making knowledge in the TFO Mangrove series. This rod series is designed for the serious angler who chases large fish. A fast-action blank accommodates heavy lines and an ultra-strong rod design makes the Mangrove perfect for throwing large flies and heavy lines. Durable componentry means you can fish the Mangrove in the freshwater or saltwater and in pursuit of some of the world’s largest fish.
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 large, wind-resistant flies in windy conditions. Add a strong butt section for increased lifting power and a modern rod taper and this rod is one of the best for big game in both freshwater and saltwater.
Tactical Series Stripping Guides - TFO’s proprietary Tactical Series stripping guides are made for heavy lines and large fish. These guides are durable and friction-minimizing for improved casting ability and effortless stripping power.
Tactical Series Snake Guides - Similarly, Tactical Series snake guides add to the big fish functionality of the Mangrove. These guides are also lightweight to decrease overall rod weight.
Milled Aluminum w/Double Uplocking Component - The Mangrove 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 Mangrove also comes with a modified full-wells grip with an extended fighting butt for improved fish-fighting capabilities.
Carbon Fiber Insert - Lighter Mangrove rod models have a carbon fiber insert with a double uplocking component to keep the rods lightweight and functional.
Rod Tube Not Included - The Mangrove doesn’t come with a rod tube. That being said, TFO Triangular rod tubes can be purchased separately to keep the Mangrove 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.
