T&T’s flagship freshwater rod series, the Avantt, is a mix of fast action performance and a caster friendly design. These rods are ultra responsive with a lively design that’s also extremely light in hand. Perfect for any trout scenario, bass, and more, the Avantt series is a solid combination of delicacy and power. Best of all? All T&T rods are handmade in the USA and no detail goes overlooked. There’s a reason T&T’s motto is ‘the rod you will eventually own’. If you’re smart, you’ll just buy one now.
Proprietary StratoTherm Resin - T&T’s proprietary StratoTherm tech produces rods that are accurate and lively. The blank of the Avantt is light and responsive with high recovery speeds and vibration dampening characteristics. The rod blank’s power translates to high performance at longer casting distances without sacrificing performance at close range. These rods are the perfect combination of power and delicacy. The blank is finished with a low-friction, stealth matte blue.
Titanium-Frame Ceramic Stripping Guides - The titanium-frame ceramic stripping guide on the Avantt is rigid and durable. This stripping guide allows anglers to fire off effortless casts and wrangle large fish with ease.
ECOating Snake Guides - ECOating snake guides are similar to regular snake guides with a coating that decreases friction and maximizes performance. These guides are the Snake brand’s latest in fly guide technology.
Black Ash Burl w/Uplocking Component - The Avantt has a beautiful black ash burl reel seat spacer with a lightweight aluminum uplocking component. The reel seat adds to the rod’s incredibly low swing weight and stellar construction. The uplocking component safely holds down any freshwater reel and is corrosion resistant.
Aluminum Rod Tube - The Avantt comes in a blue powder-coated aluminum rod tube that protects the rod during travel and transportation. These tubes are durable and include a T&T rod sock for increased fly rod protection.
T&T Lifetime Warranty - As of July 2019, T&T offers an original owner lifetime warranty against breakage due to defects in materials or workmanship. Rods must be registered with T&T within 30 days of purchase. The warranty does not cover lost sections or lost rods, normal wear and tear, neglect or intentional breakage. T&T will also repair rods for a $55 service fee provided they’re registered to the original owner.
