RH Custom Rods CTS S8 Surf series is the lightest, most powerful long range casting blanks in the world today. These blanks feature a zoned action; the butt is stiff and tapers into a moderate midsection and then a fast action tip. This design transfers all the power you put into the cast efficiently to your payload.

The Surf series excels at casting plugs and poppers at large predatory fish and has become a favorite of many who chase Roosters and Jacks on Mexican beaches. Metals are put in orbit and schools on the far side of the bar are no longer safe. The heavier rated rods perform extremely well as weight and bait heavers targeting stripers, drum and sharks.
  • Taper: Extra Fast
  • Action: Fast
  • Material: 57msi Carbon
  • Core: VeroCore Carbon Helix

A $7.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.

Fish catching machine!

I just recently returned from my annual trip to Cabo San Lucas and couldn't be happier with my purchase. I usually take my rods in a custom made tube which is over six and a half feet in length. The airline I fly charges me $75.00 each way because they say it's "over sized". Not anymore! I put it in my old St.Croix 10' traveler rod case and carry it on with absolutely no problems. How does it fish you ask? Well as soon as I got it unpacked and put together I ran straight to the beach and started casting, on the third cast I hooked into a beast of a Jack Crevalle which I promptly beat into submission with the help of this new rod. The rest of the trip was epic I lost count of how many fish I caught. The line and weight rating is pretty much spot on. It cast great with proper technique it can easily cast 100+ yards. I have been searching for years for a rod like this and finally CTS has made it. I matched it up with the Shimano Stella 14000 reel and what a combo this turned out to be, light weight and strong. I was able to fish and cast all day long with very little fatigue. In conclusion if you are sick of paying the extra money to your airline for the over size charge and you feel this rod is a little expensive. Look at it this way. In just a few trips this rod will practically pay for it's self.

I love it.

I love this rod it is perfect for my needs. I fish the Mexican Pacific Beaches on vacation every year and I need a rod that fits in my luggage. You will need longer luggage and maybe pack it diagonally the longest section is 30 1/2 in. It doesn't come with a travel case. It is an excellent over head thump rod. Great distance. Several times my companions would call on me to get to the schools out of their range. The 1oz to 3oz rating seems to be right on I did throw some 3/4oz metal with it with good success and I could throw 1/ 1/2oz to 3oz 120+yds all day long. It is a good Idea after a few cast after assembly to check to make sure the sections are still seated properly especially when new. I have been looking for the right rod for years and I have finally found it. Thanks RH Custom Rods and CTS you have finally come up with the perfect surf travel rod.
ProsGood packability and the forward slanting guides keep the wind knots down. I haven't had a wind knot yet!
ConsNo travel case.

According to the above answers, this rod does not come with a "travel" case. Do you mean a hard case and does this rod at least have a soft case since it is a 5-piece design?
Hello Rosen. This rod does not come with any kind of case. Please feel free to contact us if you have any more questions.

What size reel would balance best with S8 11'6" 5 piece 1-3. Rod? Will be used mostly in cabo.
Hard to say exactly. A Shimano UltegraCi45500 would be great on that rod and really light. Where a Penn Spinfisher 5500 would be much heavier and not give you the casting distance or line capacity needed in Cabo.
