The Century SS1025 Sling Shot Rod was designed as a fall striper rod with the ability to throw lighter lures and bucktails for schoolies but still have the backbone to throw up to a 2.5 ounce darter and handle a big boy if need be. This Century sling shot rod has an unmatched weight range and will throw a far distance for a rod with a small diameter. This fishing rod is perfect for river fishing, flounder from the beach, pompano, and topwater for landlocked stripers.

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.

Wow!!! Hands down best surf rod I have ever used and owned
This surf rod is extremely light and versatile. The distance this rod can cast is outstanding, loads up nice and casts a mile. I have thrown 1/2oz bucktails to 4oz of lead and a chunk with this rod and it handles it well. First time chunking with this rod and I landed a sandbar shark. Paired it with a quantum Cabo 50, can cast all day and not have any fatigue in my arm or shoulder. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to make a step up to a high end surf rod, I'm glad I did and will never ever regret it. Don't let the price deter you, it's WELL WORTH IT!!!!!!!! We all know you pay for what you get in the fishing industry, so why not treat yourself with this?!?!? Go for it

Just what I was looking for...
Nice rod...casts a mile & handles 1 to 3 ounce lures with ease. I use it exclusively for top waters and paired it with a Shimano Ultegra 5500 - nice combination! Service was excellent, my goto online supplier!
ProsGreat for tossing 1 & 2 ounce plugs and tins...w/o fatigue. Perfect length for the surf!
ConsNone...fits nicely between my 9'6" and my 11' rods.

So Far So Good!
After doing a lot of research I decided to try out a Century brand product...and went with the SS1145, it will be used exclusively for tossing top waters and small metals. Once I made the decision to buy I needed to find a retailer - I am just getting back into surf fishing now that I am semi-retired but haven't stayed current with distributors and retailers over the years. So, more research, when I found Tackle Direct. Loved the product videos and selection - long story short I ordered from them (and a couple weeks later a new Penn Torque spinning reel) and the experience was perfect. Rod (and later the reel) arrived on time and in perfect condition...very impressed with the packaging used, actually took me over 20 minutes to open the rod tube! Anyway - this is more of a review of Tackle Direct's competence as winter has sit in here in the northeast and I wasn't able to use the new rod and reel this Fall...but have already been doing tons of research on hot spots for next season!
ProsService was excellent - great inventory, quick turnaround, good prices...and they kept me current as to order/shipping status.

Excellent rod for fishing the Cape Cod Canal....won't fatigue you casting/jigging and has the backbone to turn large stripers in heavy current

Sling Shot SS 1265
I was searching for the perfect distance rod for the Canal and some of the other spots I fish. This rod delivers the distance. Surprisingly, the lightness & tip "play" lets you work pencils & other lures all the way back & that, not the terrific distance, is what I like most about these rods.
ProsExceptional Casting Distance. Very light. Nice soft tip for working pencils. True 2 piece design for easy transport.
ConsYou pay for what you get. This rod was totally worth it.

light rod
It is very light weight rod.. I pair with vs 200 and vs 150 both balance well. I like little stiffer rod, but sling shot is very light.
ProsSuperior quality

Great plugging rod
Very light weight great casting rod. This is my first high end rod and the difference is well worth the money. You don't need heavy lures to get the distance with these rods. You can get great distance on a 1oz lure, 2oz is where I really like the performance of the SS1145. This size is also perfect for the beach or casting off the jetty. It also pairs up very nicely with the Van Staal VS150.

strong, light, casts excellent
I own the ss1327 rated 2-5 ounces and find the ratings dead on and will cast lighter plugs also. Has excellent back bone, I have taken striped bass up to 30 lbs in the cape cod canal and the rod handled them great even in heavy current.

reel recommendations for this rod?

There are a lot of options for this rod depending on your preferences. Penn Clash, Shimano Saragosa, Van Staal. It would depend on what you are fishing for and the conditions that you fish.

how well do you think this will throw a 1/4 oz BT? Thanks.
1 Answers
That rod might be a bit stiff to throw light lures. You may want to consider a lighter model for throwing light artificials.
