TFO Rods - TiCr X



We could tell you about big adventures and great success with this rod. Just pick it up and you'll have your own success stories to tell.

The evolution of the Lefty Kreh TiCr X Series has been fascinating. Imagine Lefty Kreh taking a prototype and saying "this is a nice rod but..." Then imagine new mandrels and as many as 6 prototypes later having him say, "PERFECT!"

Lefty designed the TiCr X Series to be a powerful angling tool. Rod weights 5-8 are designed to present flies at distant targets. Rod weights 9-12 have the power to launch larger flies and to lift an angry fish out of the depths. The reserve power in the TiCr X Series give these rods the ability to carry a lot of line in the air and can easily be over lined for close-in work.

Slightly slower than the extra fast action TiCr rods, the Lefty Kreh TiCrX has a specially reinforced butt section to aid in fighting big fish. The design uses a large diameter butt section and added graphite to improve strength and reduce weakness introduced by ovalling of the rod under load. All this added strength with a minimal gain in rod weight makes the TiCrX an expert saltwater tool with the versatility to double as a burly trout rod.

Like the TiCr, the TiCr X features the proprietary TiCr Coating uses titanium and chromium to benefit both the performance and longevity of the rod. In the first instance, the coating dampens shock (i.e. Tip Bounce) which helps to deliver long, smooth, and above all, very precise casts. Secondly, the coating creates a hardened finish along the entire rod blank which protects the embedded graphite and reduces the potential for damage from errant flies and other shocks that might weaken a rod and cause it to break.

Features:
  • Fast action
  • IM6 graphite blank with a blue finish and silver trim
  • Proprietary TiCr Coating
  • Precision Blank Over Ferrule Technology
  • Extra strong butt section for increased lifting power
  • Precision blank over ferrule technology
  • Machined and anodized channel-locking aluminum reel seat
  • 5wt reel seat has a woven graphite insert
  • Premium flor Portugese cork grip
  • Colour-coded alignment dots for easy assembly
  • Oversized Titanium Oxide stripping guides and hard chrome stainless steel snake guides
  • "WOW!!!!! This rod throws a line as flat as a billiard table with a loop you can throw through a screen door. I would certainly rate this one of the very best eight weight rods I have ever cast. For anyone who likes a fast action rod - this does it in spades."
