TFO Blitz 8wt 9'0"
When bait gets nervous and fish start busting the surface, anglers need a tool to deliver a fly, quickly and precisely. The Blitz series of fly rods combines years of knowledge and experience on both coasts while targeting hard-fighting, lightning-fast fish. This rod was designed to allow anglers to have the confidence to know when they spot a pod of bait busting the surface, they can quickly load and deliver a fly, often at distance and with lines of varying densities, without worrying about anything else.
The Blitz is a fast action rod, with a mid-level of stiffness to deliver heavy lines, and large flies at distance. This is ideal for anglers fishing long intermediate and sinking lines and weighted flies.
The result is that the Blitz series fly rods stabilize faster and smoother, absorb shock better and comfortably tolerate over-loading. The angler benefits because Axiom technology virtually eliminates the ability to overpower the rod when casting. Bottom line – whether you carry more line in the air or push the rod to the limit, you won’t feel any mushiness – What you will feel is the line ripping out of your hand as it launches.
The Blitz rod features TFO’s patented and exclusive Axiom technology. The series is constructed with high-modulus carbon fiber material and an embedded double-helix of Kevlar within the blank. The Blitz features premium quality cork handles with burl accents and features silver, fully anodized aluminum reel seats with built-in hook keepers.
All seven models feature alignment dots color coded by line weight, RECOIL guides by REC, and ultra-lightweight chromium-impregnated stainless-steel snake guides. All models are full wells grips with fighting butts. Blitz blanks are finished in a deep turquoise, with dark blue thread wraps and silver tipping.
All Blitz rods are packaged in a labeled rod sock and rod tube.
The Blitz series delivers exceptional casting performance and efficiency that when combined with TFO’s no-fault lifetime warranty make them the perfect choice when distance and accuracy are key. TFO. Fish The Original.
