The Tactical Bass casting series was created by Temple Fork Outfitters for serious bass fishermen and women that require precision equipment for technique-specific fishing situations.

This series includes rods ranging from 6'9" to 8'0 in length, medium-light to extra-heavy in power, and these rods are either moderate or fast action. All rods are color-coded according to rod power. Medium-light is gray, medium is yellow, medium-heavy is red, heavy is black, and extra-heavy is green. All of these rods are made of carbon fiber, medium modulus, 1-piece blanks that are finished in a satin clear coat. They all have cork split-grip handles and a down-locking reel seat, making it easier and more comfortable to cast repetatively all day long. The power ratings are as follows:

  • Medum-Light - 1/16-3/8 oz. lures, 4-10 lb. monofilament (7'3", 4 oz. rod, Fast Taper only)
  • Medium - 3/16-1/2 oz. lures, 8-14 lb. monofilament
  • Medium-Heavy - 1/4-3/4 oz. lures, 8-20 lb. monofilament
  • Heavy - 3/8-1 1/2 oz. lures, 12-25 lb. monofilament
  • Extra-Heavy - 1/2-2 oz. lures, 14-30 lb. monofilament Key Features:
  • Versatility - This casting series has 18 model options, making it incredibly useful to anlgers from all walks of life.
  • Sensitivity - The down locking reel seat has cutouts in it so that the angler can directly contact the blank while fishing. This contact makes it easier to detect those subtle bites.
  • PacBay Guides - The stainless steel guides by PacBay are lightweight, durable, and they reduce friction on the line because they are bevelled.
  • Moderate/Fast Tapers - The moderate tapers are best when combined with lures that make their own actions like crankbaits and trolling lures. The fast actions are better for situations where the angler has to perform the presentation of the lure in the water like stickbaits, jigs, and soft jerkbaits/paddle-tails.

5 /5
Matt was so easy to work with. He answered all my questions and there were many. He offered detailed explanations for his recommendations and sold me exactly what I needed, nothing more and nothing less. He also gave me valuable information regarding the sport of fly fishing and not just the current equipment I was seeking to buy. It was an amazing experience. Thanks Matt!

5 /5
Rylyn found a sale for the Douglas Sky G rod and recommended it. He said that this was the best rod in the market and so I bought it. We paired it with monic Trout Master fly line. I was not disappointed at all! The rod feels intuitive and natural to cast. I could cast more accurately and a longer distance than I ever did with my previous rod.

5 /5
I recently purchased a pair of waders through Curated with Stefan’s help. They were very helpful and able to get me exactly what I was looking. Items were perfect for my price range and the days by the streams/lakes that I will spend my time at. I enjoy researching products on my own, and was worried Curated might take the fun out of things, but this service is great for people like me also. Whether you have an idea of what you want, or are just getting started looking I would highly recommend Curated, and Stefan!

5 /5
Found a great deal on Curated for a Daiwa fishing pole. My sales representative, Josh, was very helpful in answering questions before the order. Even more impressive was how he and Curated responded when the rod was delivered broken (not their fault). They immediately helped guide me through the return process which provided me the confidence that this would be resolved without issue. New rod is on the way and I have already ordered a second one!

Rylyn is attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. He promptly responded to my inquires throughout the day and continued to send over his well written personal reviews of products and created bundle deals catered to my needs. When an issue arose with products not being available, he sent over the links I needed to get the products those products within a few minutes. If only every shopping experience was like this.
