I was just wondering if anyone has been FISHING with the TFO Tactical Series rods.  I've read plenty of reviews on the signature series, but really haven't come across any regarding their tactical series.  They seem to be a significant step up from the signature series.

I own the 7'3'' mh 8-17# 3/8-1oz lure rating.  Bought to use for open water football jigs/heavy gauge hook jigs.  I found that it was a bit soft for my liking using 17# fluro and your typical diameter hook for those baits.  I now use the rod for lighter wired hair/hippy jigs that are in the same weights and for those applications it meets my expectations. 

It is a light, well balanced rod, but like a said, a bit soft for the rating imo. I find it to be more than adequately sensitive at that price range and I am also a fan of have no "foregrip" on the rod so that I can actually keep a finger on it.

Thanks!  If you had to do it over again, would you go with another TFO, or go with another rod manufacturer?

I think the technique specific tactical rods would be good- crank bait specifically. 

I think, again talking at this price point, I would order the rod again however I may bump up to a heavy even if fishing in open water.  Problem being I would want to hold a heavy in person first to see just how stiff it may be. 

overall, I guess I would give it an 8.5/10.   

would have got a 9.5/10 if it fit exactly what I needed it for, which is impossible and completely subjective person to person.
