Temple Reef GT 710-8 (Explorer)
The Temple Reef GT Stick series are rapidly becoming a favourite amongst GT addicts worldwide, and for good reason!
38 years of experience in exotic fishing
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 anodized 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.
This was designed as a general purpose GT rod and is perfect for casting stickbaits and poppers in the 80-160 gram range. Its perfect for use as an all day rod or for exploratory fishing as it effortlessly casts long distances, works medium poppers and stickbaits easily and is light so wont fatigue the angler. A great all round rod perfect for GT fishing in most Australian conditions.
Best matched with a 10000-14000 (Shimano) or 4500-5000 (Daiwa) reel. Beginners and advance users alike will love this rod for its sensitivity and responsiveness. We name this rod “Explorer” because this is the rod we use when exploring uncharted territory which will require constant casting, this lightweight setup reduces fatigue and is capable of dealing with a wide range of fishing conditions and fish size.
