What do big fish that live in and around all types of heavy cover have in common? Once hooked they will kick your butt before burrowing into the thickest junk they can find! Don’t let them kick your rod’s butt too. The new “Mini Magnum” was designed, with help from Nick Curcione, well, to kick butt back.
The 8’ Mini Magnum rods utilize Temple Fork’s Bluewater Technology (a hybrid combination of S-Glass and high-modulus carbon fiber for exceptional lifting power and casting ability), but is equally at home in both fresh and salt waters. So go ahead and throw your favorite popper into that tight spot, once eaten there’s enough butt strength to yard bucketmouth & pike out of the lily pads, rip mossback yellows & seabass from the kelp beds or haul backcountry snook & tarpon away from the mangroves.
Every Bluewater rods goes through TFO’s proprietary TiCr coating process twice, adding power and durability. The rich blue granite finish on the 3 piece Mini Mag blank is quite distinctive. The rod itself features oversized titanium-oxide stripping and snake guides, a channeled and cushioned up-locking reel seat, and flor grade full wells grip and fighting butt.
These rods are featured as 6-8wt (200-300 grains) and then 8-10wt (300-400 grains).
