Temple Reef has built a reputation for building advanced Popping and Jigging rods. Our family of rods spans serious fresh water "River Monster" species including ..... to light and back Saltwater applications and of course serious Offshore Salt Water where we have proven ourselves and our products over the past fourteen (14) years.
The "Hottest" catagory right now for any offshore fishing rod company is likely the catagory called "Slow Pitch" or "Slow Fall" Jigging. This is a relatiively new style of jigging where the jigs themselves are designed to move HORIZONTALLY as well as VERTICALLY in the water column. The basic idea of "Slow" Jigging is that the jig itself will stay in the "strike zone" longer and with far less effort as compared to "Speed" or "Vertical" Jigging Techniques.
The technique in a nutshell is to lift the jig up and let it fall naturally and let its design do the work of imparting the action that draws strikes.
Temple Reef has a full line of Slow Pitch Rods called LEVITATE. There are three models right now 68-1, 68-2 and 68-3. These are all Acid or Roberts Wrapped rods for Convensional (Multiplier) type reels.
Does it work ? Hey if I can catch this super rare, Golden Travela think what it can do in the hands of a good fisherman!
