Love the rod and TackleDirect
July 2, 2018
Planning a trip to the Texas coast in July. Going to spend most of my time surf fishing this time instead of fishing the channels. I needed two casting surf rods for my reels. After doing a lot of research, decided to go with the Beefsticks.TackleDirect was the only store that had them in stock. Was worried about the shipping after reading the horror stories from other sites about the rods being broken. TackleDirect does it right. The tubes that they ship the rods in are indestructible. I will purchase all my future rods from them. They are awesome! The rods? So far so good. Have not used them yet, but Beefstick definitely means Beef! From playing with them, I think I could haul a car in out of the surf. The rods are a heavy rod, made for chunking heavy bait. Quality seams awesome. Will no more at the end of July.

12 ft surf, heavy rod, but super strong. I refuse to pay $400 for a blank, I bought this, shaved it down, changed real seat to heavy duty, and replaced guides. Other than a little heavy, I’ll put this to the test at the outer banks. Tight linesđŸ¤¨
ProsStrong , well worth the $40
ConsA little heavy

I bought two 12 foot Beefsticks and put Penn 140Ls on them. They cast very well and are sensitive to fish hitting the bait. Very nice looking rods too!

If your looking for a rod with enough backbone to cast a bait a long ways but have great sensitivity, then this is the rod for you!! And you can't beat the price!!
ProsPrice Design Strength Action

Great bait rod
July 5, 2017
I wanted a strong rod with which to fish chunk bait. This rod is perfect, great casting and strong. The rod could be heavier than a plugging rod because continual casting will not be done for this application. Fiberglass is perfect for it.
ProsStrength and weight make it perfect for a chunking rod.
ConsWeight of rod.

Received this item a few days before heading to Cape Lookout NC. Rod performed as well as higher end rods that I own. Will certainly be purchasing more of these rods for the surf.
ProsNice fast tip with good backbone. Very good rod for the price

Outstanding Bang For Your Buck
April 15, 2015
One of the best bangs for your hard earned buck out there. Plenty of backbone for fighting those big red drum bulls at Cape Hatteras, Ocracoke, and Cape Lookout, yet sensitive enough for catching those puppy drums as well. Eventhough rated for up to 8oz, I have thrown 6oz weight and 3-4oz of bait with no problems. I predict that this rod will give me years of good service. I would buy another another or two, without hesitation. Would have given it 5 stars instead of 4 stars (wish there was a 4.5), if the eyes were a tad stronger.
ProsPlenty of strength for casting heavy weights plus bait catching those big 30, 40, and 50 pound red drums, stripers, or catfish. Long handle for really putting the pressure on those big fish. The distance from reel seat to the first eye is 32", which is the optimum distance for my Penn 350M LeveLine reels.
ConsThe eyes, while sufficiently stong, could be stronger. Heavier rod than most of your graphite rods.

I recently purchased two fishing rod's from Tackle Direct. I did a lot of research on line, and not only was it the lowest price, but the shipping was very reasonable and fast. I would definitely recommend Tackle Direct to anyone looking for a good deal!!

I bought this rod today. I would be interested to hear any comments, line wt you use, weights size, casting ease and distance I should expect. Also your hook set up and bait. Will be using rod with 6500 Penn open fact reel , fishing next week in Corolla NC.
1 Answers
We suggest using 30#-40# braided line and attaching a leader to the end of the line about 1-4 feet in length. As for weight, use enough to hold bottom, but do not exceed the rating on the rod. Hook size and bait depend on what you will be fishing for. Casting distance will depend on amount of weight being thrown, wind, skill, etc... but you should expect between 50-100 yards.
