T&T’s specialty Bluewater series is made for the biggest fish in the world. Targeting Tuna with a fly rod? Sharks, Billfish, Whales? This is the best tool for the job. Amazing lifting power and a heavy-duty grip makes this thing a weapon on the water. A 2-piece design for increased strength means this is a great boat rod (and I’ve never heard of anyone catching bluewater fish from the shore). These technical rods are made for the serious bluewater fanatic, an angler who doesn’t mess around with coastal species. If this sounds like you, buy one now.
Multi-Modulus Graphite Blank - The blank of the Bluewater is built for strength and lifting power. These heavy rods combine unique resins and fibers and a special curing process to create a two-piece rod with incredible big game capabilities. These blanks may be the strongest in the market today and are designed for the strongest, meanest fish in the ocean.
Fuji Stripping Guides - Fuji stripping guides are heavy-duty and lightweight. These guides will easily shoot a host of larger bluewater fly lines and are also tangle-resistant for worry-free two-handed or single-handed casting.
Universal Snake Guides - Universal snake guides are easy and efficient. These guides accommodate a host of different lines and are used by many major rod manufacturers for their sleek profile and low-friction design.
Milled Aluminum Reel Seat w/Double Uplocking Components - The reel seat on the Bluewater is designed to withstand weather and corrosion. A pewter-anodized milled aluminum design with heavy-duty double uplocking components makes the reel seat of the Bluewater weatherproof and intensely functional. An ultra-premium cork extended fighting grip and butt makes casting and fighting big fish easy and comfortable.
Aluminum Rod Tube - The Bluewater 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.
