TFO Jim Teeny 8wt

  1. This is my first post here so I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this question. A few years ago I bought a TFO Jim Teeny 8 wt fly rod. I've always liked it! Never really put a lot of thought into the rod until I started to nerd out on fly gear more recently. Does anyone else have this rod? Just looking for opinions and a little banter. I like TFO and am on my third one with my Deer Creek 6wt switch rod. Just curious about the JimTeeny model. It doesn't seem like it had a long run....
     
  2. I have two TFO rods and they both serve my purposes very nice. I imagine that your Jim Teeny rod will serve you nice also.

  6. The Jim Teeny rod is still alive and well. I have a 5 wt., 8 wt., and two 9 wts. They are excellent blanks with average components, unfotunately. Jim Teeny took back his sgnature rods a while back. They are still built by TFO and you can buy them at Sportsman's Warehouse @ $199. I think the early ones were a charcoal blank, perhaps but the are a green blank, now. They cast very well. I bought mine as backups but they get more and more use, especially the 5 wt. It's a really good sea run cutthroat rod with an intermediate or floating line and all rods from 4 thru 12 come with a fihhting butt. Well worth the price.
