Temple Fork Outfitters Edge Pacemaker Tforods.com; $359 TFO offers more impressive, high-end rods with its Edge Pacemaker series. These rods were designed with careful attention from Bassmaster Classic champion Cliff Pace. I found the Edge Pacemaker rods to be incredibly light, responsive, and comfortable. They feature top-of-the-line components, including titanium guides with Zirconium inserts and an ALPS AGC reel seat. The family of six casting and one spinning rod ranges from a 6-foot 10-inch model to 7-foot 10-inche model, and handles 1/8- to 2-ounce lures. The rods can handle cranking, structure fishing, pitching, and drop-shotting, among other applications. Temple Fork Outfitters
A quick stroll around the floor of the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, or ICAST, can leave your head spinning. The number of new fishing rods for 2017 is hard to take in. After hours of talking with reps, walking the floor, and testing promising new models, I landed on my top five new rods. Here they are, in no particular order.
The write-up for the Edge Rods Pacemaker initially stated that Temple Fork Outfitters makes Edge rods, when, in fact, it is the exclusive distributor of Edge rods. We regret the error.
