Tactical Long 9.4 for 8

I met Joe Goodspeed a few year back while he was testing and fishing his prototype TL 8 weight for false albacore. I think he was somewhat impressed with my ability to water haul and throw a line 90 feet on one back cast. He handed me this prototype and I did the same cast. But something was different. It was easier! I asked him when it would be in production and he said it needed a little more tweaking. Tweak he did and I got to test the final results. I am a salt water shore guide in CT and RI. I sold most of the fly rods I liked and am going full out Diamondback going forward. After casting his newer Aeroflex rods, I now own three of those! Best of both worlds from shore fishing to beyond! My good friend Mark Sedotti likes somewhat ultra fast rods but he loved the TL for the way it suited my casting style. One back cast and boooom! Mark taught me how to do that 40 years ago. I love the way this rod loads with very little effort. Much better than the super fast rods that tend to blow out the rotator cuffs of aggressive casters. Thank you Joe Goodspeed!

Tactical long 7wt

Was looking for something in between a 5wt and 9wt and bam this rod is it. Turned onto it by Brian at Hilltown Anglers. Built me a nice streamer rod. Launches flys. Best rod in my quiver.

Great boat rod and streamer stick!!!

Put 1k casts into it so far, dialing long distance takes minimal effort. Equally great as a beach caster as well w/ additional 4’ inches on the blank. Diamondback and Joe I can’t recommend enough! Superb price point for a high quality rod coupled with/ elite customer service! Thanks Joe!!!
