      The ARK Tharp Series is comprised of 16 rods (2 spinning, and 14 casting models). Each was built to my exact specifications to fish specific techniques that I use to do my job at the highest level on the Tournament Fishing.

      This project was a lot more than testing a few new blanks and putting my name on them. I took this opportunity to use my knowledge, working with an amazing company and the very best in the business overseas to build an innovative and affordable line of rods. We utilized new materials and components that I am confident will give me a competitive advantage on the tournament trail. I flew half way around the world to ensure each model is perfect for the task that I designed it for and couldn’t be happier with the results!

      The 2024 Tharp Series rods inherit the same actions from last gen but the weight of the rods has been reduced up to 10%. It features:

      1. Japanese Toray 40T High Modulus Carbon-Fiber with Our Unique MDML Technology makes the blank lighter, stronger, and more sensitive.

      2. New designed Team ARK reel seat.

      3.Fuji K-concept tangle free guides.

      4.Four new models were added according to the usage during Tharp's fishing season.

      Differences Between the New Generation Tharp Series Rod and the Previous
      Tharp Series | NTS74M-G – Twitch “This is the shortest and lightest casting rod in my series and was specifically built for fishing a jerk bait. It also excels target fishing with a topwater bait in tight quarters. Its moderate action makes fishing these lures easy and then once a big fish is hooked- they stay hooked!” – Randall Tharp
      Tharp Series | NTS7M-G – Paycheck The Paycheck is a short, composite rod I designed for fishing light line and any small treble hook lure. It’s 7’ length makes target fishing a breeze and the light action allows any crankbait to bounce through thick cover without hanging up. I count on this one everyday to not only get the bite but to also put them in the boat. It's truly the next level in composite rod design. Lighter, softer, and more sensitive – Randall Tharp
      NTS74HFC – Superduty This is my favorite rod in the Tharp line because when this rod is in hand, it means I am fishing heavy cover and targeting big bass. This rod is extremely powerful and suited for a variety of big bass techniques. It performs flawlessly with braid or heavy fluorocarbon. I love the soft tip which allows accurate and lengthy casts which is unique for such a powerful stick. If you need a rod to drive that hook home at the end of a long cast and extract a giant out of the slop then SuperDuty is the rod for you! – Randall Tharp
      Tharp Series | NTS74M-G – Twitch The Scarface is a medium-length composite rod I designed for light line and mid-depth, treble hooked lures. Its light action is perfectly suited for crankbaits and enables your favorite to deflect through thick cover without hanging up. The 7’4” length allows for long and accurate casts needed to get the bait down where the big ones live. It’s truly the next level in composite rod design. Lighter, softer, and more sensitive– Randall Tharp
