Custom TFO 9'0" 5 Weight 4 Piece

These custom options are geared toward the discerning angler who wants to step up to a stick that’s been tweaked to an ultra level of refinement.

Similar to the aftermarket modifications sought by car enthusiasts and racing buffs who want the maximum output from their ride, TFO is now proud to offer a number of customized options to further enhance the casting performance of a select series of rods in our stellar fly rod lineup. The casting characteristics of our production rods have earned the reputation of being second to none. Still, some of you demand even more, and, despite the proven excellence of our rods, there is always room for further refinement.

Cork Grip
Our custom handles (F) are made using the highest-grade cork with burnt and burl cork accents to maximize both comfort and beauty. Choose from these different configurations – Full Wells, Half Wells, or Full Wells with Snout, and three different sizes – Small, Medium and Large. Sizing information available online.

Cork Grip Options

Full Wells Small Medium Large
Half Wells Small Medium Large
Full Wells W/Snout Small Medium Large


Reel Seat Options

  • (1) Up Locking or (2) Down Locking Reel Seat
  • Anodized Aluminum, Dark Nickel Reel Seat with a Light or Dark Wood insert
  • Solid Anodized Aluminum Reel Seat in Black or Light Titanium 


Fighting Butt Option

You may choose to add a fighting butt to your custom TFO rod. Fighting butts are traditionally reserved for rods larger than 6-weight, but can be added to any of our custom rods upon request. Made from premium and burl cork, our custom fighting butts are 1, 1 ½ or 2 inches long and can provide a distinct advantage when fighting large fish.

Rod Blank - Blueprinting for Perfection

In addition to cosmetic enhancements with guide wraps, reel seats, and ergonomic grip modifications, the blank undergoes a blueprinting process closely akin to engine refinements in the hands of master mechanics. After a blank is rolled, it is subjected to a unique blueprinting operation where the energy output is measured inch by inch along its entire length. High- and low-energy spots are detected and eliminated. The end product is a blank that is in perfect balance. Its mechanical efficiency has been tuned to its absolute level of performance and that translates into a casting stroke that requires less energy input from the caster. For any given distance, the rod works more and the caster works less. It is pure casting efficiency.

Custom Inscription

TFO customers can customize their rod purchase for by having something special inscribed on the rod. There is a limit of 20 letter that can be inscribed on the rod.
