T&T’s new mid-priced rod series, the Zone, captures everything we love about high-end T&T rods. The Zone comes in a host of rod models with smaller medium-fast trout rods and larger fast action saltwater rods. These rods are accurate, lively, and a real pleasure to cast. A natural finish preserves the integrity of the blank for ultimate performance in any angling situation. T&T’s Zone series combines high-end blank technology with functional componentry to produce a rod that every angler will love.
Advanced StratoTherm Resin and Natural Finish - T&T’s proprietary StratoTherm tech produces rods that are accurate and lively. The Zone’s blank 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. A natural finish captures the rod’s full performance profile and enhances rod strength.
Titanium Frame Stripping Guides w/Zirconium Inserts - The stripping guide on the Zone is rugged and high performing. The Zirconium insert minimizes friction and the titanium design is functional and strong.
Chrome Single-Foot Snake Guides (3wt-7wt) - Single foot snake guides keep the lighter Zone rods light and functional. Snake guides accommodate any fly line and maximize casting efficiency with their friction-resistant design.
E-Coating Universal Snake Guides (8wt-10wt) - On the heavier rod models, E-Coating adds durability and corrosion resistance to the snake guides of the Zone. Snake guides are industry-accepted and time-proven.
Blue Fiber Reel Seat - The Zone’s reel seat is simple and efficient. On the smaller rod models, a blue carbon fiber reel seat and a clear anodized aluminum single uplocking component keep the rods lightweight without sacrificing durability or performance. The heavier saltwater rod models also have a blue carbon fiber reel seat with double uplocking componentry to secure large saltwater fly reels.
Aluminum Rod Tube - The Zone comes in a silver-colored 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.
