For the angler on a budget who is not willing to compromise or sacrifice quality on the water, be sure to check out 3-Tand Fly Reels. From light line reels to blue water big game set ups, 3-Tand has you covered. We tested the TF-70 Crossover fly reels for a six weight line while fishing in the California surf for Corbina. Fly-fishing the surf can put fly reels to the test like no other situation on the water. The crashing waves are sure to get some corrosive salt in your fly reel and while fishing the beach it is nearly impossible to avoid confrontations with sand! Not to mention that stopping a 5-pound Corbina in the waves will put even the best and smoothest drag systems to the test!
We are pleased to report that our TF-70 got the job done in even the toughest of conditions. The TF-70 brings a whole new definition to the term, “Crossover Reel”. Awarded the New Product showcase, “Best of Show” at ICAST 2014, this reel earned its hardware and proved it was designed to take on the salt, fresh, single-hand and two-handed sticks.
