Not too fast, not too slow.
The TFO Impact Fly Rod might not be a six-cylinder sports car, but it isn't some kind of put-put station wagon, either—it's the trusty pickup that gets you to the river everyday with low-key sex appeal but plenty of power. Designed with TFO's Rod Performance Matrix (RPM), the Impact is designed to load quickly, but still delivers that smooth and powerful casting feel that more experienced anglers will appreciate. The Impact comes in weights ideal for trout applications, with 4-6wt options available, along with a half-wells burl cork handle and a classic rosewood reel seat. Heavier versions of the Impact are also available, with a full-wells burl cork handle, fighting butt, and aluminum up-locking reel seat finishing the butt section of the rod. Whichever weight you choose, it comes with a matte black blank, black thread wraps, and TFO's own Tactical Series stripping guides and chrome-impregnated snake guides.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I purchased this fly rod to sling streamers and terrestrials on the Madison River. I have to say I absolutely love this rod. This rod is light and comfortable in the hands. I really enjoyed the medium action and was surprised how much line you could shoot. I purchased the 7Wt with the fighting butt and was not disappointed. This is an awesome steamer rod, and I highly recommend it!
6weight With Feel
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I picked this rod up towards the end of Fall for a streamer rod. It is a medium fast action with more feel towards the medium side of it. I used it for throwing streamers before ice took over the reservoirs. I really enjoyed the feel of it, able to handle medium to large streamers and stay on target. Another good rod from TFO at a price that won't break the bank. Look forward to big rivers and large dries and terrestrials, confident that even at the 6w it will have great presentation and feel. We will see.........
