Introducing the Innovate – the first signature series rod designed by Temple Reef Prostaff Benny Ortiz. With its proprietary two-piece 70/30 joint design, the Innovate is a new concept for jigging that combines unrivaled action, incredible backbone, and added length for long fall presentation, as well as maneuverability on today’s larger-range boats.

Equipped with a unique combination of Fuji KW and LBD guides, the Innovate can handle larger diameter leader while maintaining tangle-free operation. At a mere 6oz (180g), the Innovate is light enough to fish all day, but tough enough to stop nearly anything that swims.

The Innovate series is built to handle big fish, big boats, and big power, making it the ultimate tool for any angler. With its innovative design, the Innovate is perfect for targeting a wide range of species, from tuna to grouper to amberjack.

And now, the Innovate 2.0 is here, featuring our proprietary Direct Sensory System™ (DSS). This technology enhances the sensitivity of the rod while reducing its overall weight for improved performance. With DSS, the Innovate 2.0 is now more responsive and easier to handle, making it the perfect tool for any fishing situation.

Thank you for considering Temple Reef for your fishing needs. With the Innovate series and its upgraded version, the Innovate 2.0, you’ll have the ultimate tool for any fishing adventure.

Innovate 2.0 is an upgrade with our proprietary Direct Sensory System™ (DSS). DSS not only enhanced the sensitivity but reduced the overall weight of the rod for improved performance:

INN-78H – 196g
INN-78H 2.0 – 181g

INN-80MH – 195g
INN-80MH 2.0 – 176g

As fishermen, we know that having a good feel for what’s happening at the end of our line is crucial to our success. We want to know every little detail, from when a fish gently mouths our bait to the feeling of a hard rocky bottom or reef. That’s why Temple Reef has developed the Direct Sensory System™ (DSS) – a groundbreaking and meticulous method of rod construction that enhances sensitivity and feel.

Our hands are incredibly attuned to vibrations transmitted via the line, to the blank and ultimately the reel seat. With advances in low-stretch braided line and highly sensitive carbon fibre blanks, we have made great strides in improving sensitivity. However, the traditional construction techniques used in reel seats have been the weakest link, causing vibration loss and information loss right where we hold the rod.

In traditional rod construction, plastic, foam or masking tape are used to build up the blank under the reel seat. These materials are soft and flexible, and therefore dampen and absorb critical vibrations before they reach our hands.

To solve this problem, Temple Reef has incorporated a meticulously crafted carbon fibre arbor into our rods, which is fused to the blank during the manufacturing process. This creates a single homogeneous piece that the reel seat can sit on without the need for masking tape or foam fillers. This design ensures that every vibration and feedback is transmitted faithfully and accurately to your hand, giving you ultimate feel and touch.

With DSS, anglers can feel the most subtle of sensations and know exactly what’s happening, when it’s happening, and why it’s happening. Our commitment to innovation and improvement has resulted in a fishing rod that delivers an unparalleled level of sensitivity, allowing you to make the most out of every fishing trip.

Thank you for considering Temple Reef for your fishing needs. Experience the Direct Sensory System™  (DSS) today and take your fishing to the next level.
