Rift – More Than Just Good-Looks
The Rift series was designed with a medium action that slows down the flex just a tad and allows more flex through the tip into the mid-section. We slowed down the action while increasing the modulus of the carbon making the Rift series lean, light and sensitive. Don’t worry there is still enough backbone to this rod to still make this a very versatile high performance rod. The medium action makes for great open loops allowing your line to turn over while nymphing with an indicator. This significantly reduces line tangles while indicator nymphing. The softer action also is great for dry fly enthusiast who are looking for the softest, most delicate presentation. Another solid choice that you can rely on in just about any circumstance.
Most Ideal Circumstance:
- Casting dries and indicator nymphing – Delivers the softest presentation and open loops
- Medium/Fast Action – Flexes more through tip into the mid-section
- Soft tip for light tippet protection
- Lean, Light, and Sensitive Design
- Most forgiving while casting
- Titanium Guides
- Beginner friendly

I had the opportunity to use the 10’ 7wt rod on a boundary waters trip in Minnesota. We were chasing large pike and smallmouth bass. This rod has the back bone to throw the largest poppers and streamers you can tie. It also has the accuracy to hit those tight weed bed pockets where big fish like to sit. I found myself wanting to use this rod over my “high performance” name brand rods the whole trip. Since buying one of my own, it’s become my go to rod, and those other rods have started collecting dust. Weather you’re throwing big streamers to pike, or casting large indicator rigs to monster trout, this rod will fit the bill.
Great rod and reel for the money! Would buy from them again.
I wasn't sure how I would like this rod and combo, but I can't say enough. The extra foot helps load the rod and moves line like a freight train with ease. I used this on my tube after bass and stripers and it performed way above my expectation. Nice combo. Way better than my TFO!
