|The New TFO BVK rods are fast action rods designed to excel in Presentation and Distance. The rich
translucent olive blanks are topped with matching braided carbon fiber reel seats, ultra lightweight
chromium-impregnated stainless snake guides and flor grade grips that are comfortably contoured and
uniquely contrasted. Available in 3 - 10 weight.
Appearance - The first thing we do when we get a new rod in is to check for any flaws in the finish, cork,
etc. The TFO rods are always flawless in this respect and the BVK is no exception
Performance - This is where I have to try and be a salesman. Like all TFO rods, the BVK does a great job
of communicating with the caster. This is sometimes a problem with fast action rods, but not so with the
BVK. You know the precise time to make the forward cast. The first thing you will notice is how light this
rod feels in the hand. it feels perfectly balanced and very comfortable. Even though it's a light, fast rod you
can feel the loading on long and short casts. you couldn't ask for more accuracy from a rod. Deadly
accurate to 70ft and there always seems to be more reserve power. Both mediocre and good casters will be
able to throw tight loops. You will find presentation to be very nice!
There are no surprises here. The rod is just what you would expect from two great casters like Lefty Kreh
and Flip Pallot. The BVK is a flawless rod in both looks and performance. A rod you will be proud to own.
You would expect to pay much more for a rod like the BVK, but with TFO you get this top notch
performance for $224.00 - $249.00!! Jump on it! You won't be disappointed!
We casted the 9'0 8wt. 5 piece rod and it held it's own and solidly out-performed some $600.00 rods. The
wind in the surf never seemed to be a factor with this rod. I attribute this to the narrow profile blank and
8'6 4wt - When choosing a rod of this size you have to wonder whether you need that smooth fast action.
When you can get it at this price it is certainly nice to have. The accuracy is superb and the lightweight feel
of this rod is a joy at close range. Tip casting this rod will place the fly exactly where you want it.
