Great Rod
March 12, 2015
I use this rod with a shimano sustain 5000 reel. A great combo for spin fishing for stripers, blues and albies. The rod has enough backbone to handle larger fish (40 lbs) but is sensitive enough to cast smaller lures for albies. An excellent rod.

7'6 Medium Light Fast Action
February 25, 2014
I use this rod as a light tackle surf fishing rod, casting carolina rigs, swim baits, and spoons. Man is this rod is light! I can cast for more than 6 hours straight and my arm is still not tired. It is long enough to give me good distance while still being very accurate. I paired it up with a Shimano Stradic3000 and it is only slightly tip heavy at the handle; it seems to balance right at the hook keeper, so a heavier reel would be perfect but the 3000 is still great. The tip is fast and it has a lot of sensitivity especially with braid. The quality of the craftsmanship is top notch and the guides are super smooth. All in all this is a fantastic rod for and intermediate fisherman or a beginner wanting something above average.

I'm a little confused about the model numbers. For the 7' Med Fast, you are showing AIS70MF but St. Croix is showing VIS70MF. Just want to make sure I am getting the right rod. Thanks.
You are looking at the older Avid Inshores, The newer ones can be seen in the link below.

What rod for a stradic 3000fj? Use will be for inshore in southeast florida.
For fishing for species like redfish and trout in Florida I would use a 7' rod rated medium or medium heavy depending on what you are throwing.

Am interested in the AIS80 MHF and would like to know what reel would best suite this rod would like to use shimano sargosa or stradic, ( wasn't sure of size for this pole) Will use for stripers and blues, from yak and some beach/jetty use Thanks
For that rod, a 5000 size reel would be best. The rod might be too long for use in a yak. We suggest looking at a 7'.

what is a great reel to complete this setup for snook?
St. Croix Avid Inshore Spinning Rods model AIS70MF matched with a Shimano Stratic 4000 or 5000 would make a good combo.
