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.

Almost perfect

first the flaws. Oddly there is no "stop" for the lower real seat ring. If you loosen it all the way it literally slides down the real handle. Obviously a manufacturing flaw. Not good for a $500 plus rod!,, also, not the same handle depicted on the TD site. They said I could return it, but I decided to give it a try. Wow, this is a great rod. This is my first 12 foot rod. I wanted it for distance and a guy at T D suggested I go with this SE model rather than the Vapor Trail. It's rated as 3 to 6 and I believe the rod is most efficient at the upper end of the range. It took me no time to get used to the additional length. At the end of the first day I was hitting 100 yards and I don't consider myself a particularly great caster. I'm in the process of teaching myself the 'off the ground" technique with the hope of hitting 130 yards. If you are a strong caster i am sure you could do this easily with this rod. The rod loads beautifully and has a perfect curve. recovery seems strong. It outcasts my St. Croix Legend and blows my Loomis IMX ( a rod which is a major disappointment) out of the water. Of course you can't forget they are 11 ft. Rods. The rod is also light as a feather , at I believe 12.9 ounces. No regrets with the purchase. It would be rated 5 stars if not for the defect mentioned above and the lack of a shrink wrapped handle ( it is a basic but comfortable foam type handle).
Prosgreat casting rod, feather light, loads beautifully
Consmfg flaw, lack of shrink wrapped handle and, of course the price

GREAT ROD STRONG BLANK

OK SO I ORDERED THE 12' 3-6 S8 A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, ITS A GREAT ROD, I USE OT FOR CASTING HEAVY PLUGS . THE SWEET SPOT SEEMS TO BE AT AROUND 5 OUNCES. IF I COULD DO IT AGAIN I WOULD GO WITH ONE SIZE LIGHTER, I PLAN ON GETTING ONE SOON.
ProsVERY STRONG AND VERY LIGHT WEIGHT, GREAT FOR CASTING RUFF SURF FOR POMPANO AND HEAVY TACTICAL ANGLER PLUGS!
ConsIMHO THE RATING SEEMS A LITTLE OFF, TO ME IT FEELS MORE LIKE A 4-8 .
