Our Nano CF Drag™ (Nano Carbon Fiber Drag) has been labeled as the toughest and the smoothest drag for your money. We did not make that mantra; the dealers and the fishermen gave us that recognition. "High quality. Mid-range price." That is all we heard when we introduced our reels to the market, and that was the mark we set prior to our birth.
The first year out of the gates we received the award for Best of Show at ICAST; an award that is voted on only by dealers, editors and other industry professionals. Are we proud of that? HELL YEAH, but we are more thankful the industry welcomed us in this manner.
What makes our drag different is one of our boldest and smartest features – our drag discs. We treat our drag with a nano resin and that creates an exceptionally smooth experience. We also designed them to help achieve the mega stopping power they deliver, but without the grit and grind other carbon fiber drags might put out. No maintenance required, no special directions, no BS. Fish the hell out of our reels and don’t be afraid to CAST AT ANYTHING. When you see that tank of a GT barreling down the reef edge in the Seychelles, throw something its way with confidence, knowing that the only thing failing is maybe your intermediate line because our T-Series drag boasts an insane 20lbs+ of drag.
With the closest to zero start up inertia you can get, some of the most hardcore anglers who fish with 3-TAND show us the results by putting our reels to the test for us. The ability to dial in precise measurements and land world record fish is what our reels deliver. For example, IGFA World Record fisherman Jan Forszpaniak, a 3-TAND Pro, recently caught the World Record Bonefish on our T-100. This past year he caught two more World Records and has a 4th pending (20lb Grouper on 4x). Jan's fished everything from Bones to Giant Trevally and beyond.
Another hardcore Pro from Florida, Andy Allen, proved to us that our TF-Series is much more than a light tackle reel. In the video below he latches onto a 60+lb Tarpon on our 4.6 oz TF-70, and a 50+lber a week later on the same 3-TAND TF-70/G.Loomis NRX 8-wt combo.
While we don't promote the TF-Series for big game like this, we told Andy to call us when he burns out the drag. We haven not heard from him yet but we do know he is still fishing the TF-70. (Andy, if you're reading...keep at it!)
While some people might not believe you can get all this for much less than other reels of the same caliber – we encourage you to check out them out for yourselves. Put one in your hands and feel the difference. You might just save a few hundred dollars, like the thousands of anglers who already fish with 3-TAND did.
