Thomas & Thomas

 

The following marketing description (and the picture above) were taken from the T&T website, courtesy of Thomas & Thomas.  " Sweet and Subtle” best describe the action of this latest series of Thomas & Thomas fly rods. For those purists who delight in a rod which allows them to virtually “paint” the fly on the water, we have created this ultra sensitive and responsive design. Use of the latest generation high-tech glass fibers has made possible a rod action previously available only in expensive bamboo rods. In keeping with rich traditions as you would expect, these Heirloom rods are appropriately finished in earth tones; an olive green shaft and paprika colored windings with bright, hand machined reel seat fittings complete the picture."

 

The Heirloom series rods have 3 piece, tip over butt glass ferruled blanks.  The grip is a Western style with a wood spacer and a bright finished, uplocking reelseat.

Reviews

The Heirloom rods have a reputation as smooth and fluid casting rods.  I will add reviews from the Fiberglass Flyrodders forum when time permits.
