T&T has a flashy flagship saltwater fly rod series: The Exocett. These rods are more than just looks, however. With one of the lightest swing weights on the market, loads of technology, and a fast action taper that’s incredibly powerful at distance, it’s easy to see why some of the most experienced anglers fish the Exocett. Not only is the Exocett high performing, but it’s also durable and completely handcrafted in the USA. If you’re a serious saltwater angler, the T&T Exocett may just be the rod for you.
Advanced StratoTherm Resin - T&T’s proprietary StratoTherm tech produces rods that are accurate and lively. The blank of the Exocett 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.
RECoil Stripping Guides - Recoil stripping guides are lightweight and rebound when bent or crushed. Recoil guides also offer minimal friction for maximum line shooting capabilities.
Black RECoil Snake Guides - Similarly, Recoil snake guides are durable and efficient. The guides on the Exocett are part of the reason the rod has such a light swing weight and overall weight.
Milled Aluminum Reel Seat w/Double Uplocking Components - The reel seat on the Exocett is designed to withstand saltwater corrosion. A milled aluminum design with heavy-duty double uplocking components makes the reel seat of the Exocett weatherproof and intensely functional. An ultra-premium cork full wells grip makes casting and fighting fish easy and comfortable.
Aluminum Rod Tube - The Exocett 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.
