Rod design has always been a game of compromises until now. Several years ago we introduced our RPM (Rod Performance Matrix) to better define what a rod or rod series has been designed to do. Presentation, distance, and lifting are the three attributes by which all rods can be measured. An emphasis in one of these has always meant a deficiency in another. The new Impact rods by Temple Fork Outfitters, through an innovative fusion of fly rod functions designed to achieve the pinnacle of performance, have made this compromise a thing of the past.

Impact™ rods are unbelievably smooth and powerful, loading and unloading with maximum efficiency, and affording an effortless feel and level of performance that will impress the most accomplished angler, along with the easy loading fishability newer fly casters need. Their action merges the attributes of all your favorite rods in such a way that there’s no trace of any of the familiar limitations you’ve had to put up with.

Each blank offers a very slim profile finished with our exclusive Tactical Series™ stripping guides and ultra-lightweight chromium-impregnated stainless snake guides. Their reduced profile burled compressed, composite cork handles are both handsome and durable – plus they retain their superb feel under all fishing conditions. Blanks are matte black with black thread wraps and emerald trim. Larger models sport machined aluminum reel seats with gray carbon fiber inserts, while smaller models are fitted with rosewood inserts.

Why a long action rod? - Unlike most TFO fast or medium fast actions which load and bend primarily towards the tip, Impact rods will bend much deeper for a given amount of resistance. This shortens the effective length of the lever which can greatly reduce the fatigue of repetitively casting a fast action rod. Think about it this way … if you put an ounce of weight on the end of a ruler, your lever is simply 12” and it is easy to hold horizontal. Put that same ounce on a yard stick – making the lever 36” and it becomes a challenge to hold for any period of time.

The combination of engineering and materials resulted in a long action with a very small diameter blank and lightning fast recovery. While these are great marketing attributes, we want you to know exactly what they will do for you to enhance your success and enjoyment in fishing them.
