Standard with every rod we use premium quality cork, agate stripping guide, E-Coated Snake Brand Guides, nickel-silver reel seat hardware, cork check, tip checks and tip top.
Our rod tube is unlike anything you've seen before. Each TMR rod is protected in a powder-coated tube with anodized cap and TMR minted coin. The whole tube then fits in a custom sewn outer bag. You'll turn heads while walking through the airport on your next trip.
We don't purchase pre-shaped handles; instead, we sort each cork ring for quality and color. Customers can choose from our standard 6.5" Full Wells or Western Cigar grips. If you have a favorite grip or a preference on your handle, let us know and we can shape it however you would like it.
You will choose from up-lock, down-lock, or slide band hardware for your rod. If you need advice, we're happy to talk through the pros and cons of each design. In addition, we turn all of our reel seats from burl wood and then hand rub them with six coats of gunstock oil. We will send you pictures of our wood choices including birdseye maple, tiger maple, box elder, black ash, amboyna, thuya burl, Koa, and many more. You will select the specific reel seat that we will put on your rod.
Our calligrapher Beth writes on each rod including an inscription of your choice, length/weight, and serial number. Many customers choose to have their name, the name of a ranch, a special event, etc. written on the rod. If you prefer to keep things simple, we can write "Tom Morgan Rodsmiths" on your rod instead.
