RECOIL guides are made from a special nickel titanium alloy with unique physical properties which means no ceramic inserts are necessary. RECOIL guides are made from an extremely hard but flexible “Shape Memory” alloy, which does not require plating, cannot corrode in any environment, and returns to its original shape after repeated deformations.
Our rods are made of a combination of domestic and foreign sourced components.
The new 8’0 JTS Medium powered spinning rod. A shoreline, saltwater, salmon taming weapon of choice! This rod is built with both the length and power to handle tenacity of strong saltwater fish or freshwater fish with a bad attitude! Anglers will enjoy chasing large pike, walleye, salmon or even redfish and snook with this versatile rod.
"Hands down the best rod for casting light jigs in the spring. The length on this rod allows for casting light jigs a mile without effort. Weather its casting a small jig and minnow or a smaller hair jig this rod is the perfect rod for the task. This is my go-to rod all spring. I pair it with a size 2000 spinning reel and 6-pound mono or braid and a short fluorocarbon leader. The sensitivity of this combo and its ultra lightweight makes it very easy to fish with all day. I have yet to hook a fish with this rod that left me thinking I was underpowered. This is by far my favorite open water rod offered by JT. "
