The Temple Reef GT Stick series are rapidly becoming a favourite amongst GT addicts worldwide, and for good reason! The blanks are hand-made in Japan by a well known Japanese blank manufacturer using only the highest quality carbon fibre. These exceptionally light, strong and durable blanks are then exported to the USA where they’re custom built by expert rod builders by adding Fuji SIC guides, Fuji winch fittings and Eva grips with anodised alloy highlights. After weeks of testing on monster class GT’s in southern Oman three models emerged that will satisfy even the most experienced GT fisherman.

GT 78-12

This is an absolute beast of a rod, and is perfect for chasing monster class GT’s in shallow or rugged terrain. Great for working medium to large stickbaits and poppers its light yet has plenty of power for keeping big fish under control. Unlike other rods that employ fast taper designs for stopping power, Temple Reef utilize medium taper and increased hoop strength design to achieve stopping power and yet convey forgiveness to the angler. A great rod for places such as Shoalwater Bay, Southern Oman, New Caledonia or anywhere with big fish and shallow water.

Best matched with a 18000 (Shimano) or 7000 (Daiwa) reel. Widow maker is designed to apply maximum load when fighting fish and yet lightweight, easy casting and responsive. Best used
in shallow and heavy reef terrain that requires the angler to be on top of the fish constantly. Please note that rod weight may vary 10% depending on apoxy resin and variance in material weight.
