Quality Rod
Overall great rod. Use my Van Staal on it. Light weight and just rigid enough. It weighs only 1 pound so my set-up is like holding air. The 5 oz weight feels heavier on the line then the rod itself.

forward guides to small
Over all quality was good, however the front guide, nearest the reel seat is too small, causing choke point for casting. I returned this item and bought Phenix "megalodon"
ProsWell made
Consneed to rethink guide system

Can Not Beat This Rod !!!
This is one of the best rods I've found for surf fishing. It is light weight yet has plenty of power. All components are top notch quality. It is so lightweight I can cast all day compared to my big water ugly stick. Buy it you will not be disappointed.
ProsAbsolutely beautiful rod and compact.
ConsLike the other review, everyone wants to pick it up and handle it.

great rod for the money
This rod looks beautiful with all the components that is used, from the ALPS guides to the Pac Bay reel seat. It is super light for being a 11' rod. I can cast with this rod all day, just make sure to match it up with a light surf reel. An offshore reel may be too heavy to be holding it up with the rod and flinging your bait beyond the sand bar. That being said, I have not had a chance to hook a monster fish from the surf yet so I can't review it's fighting power when pulling in a fish over sand bars and through the surf.

take a look, dnt cross it off your list yet
I ordered this rod with out seeing how it felt, I have the same model rod in 9ft MH so I based my decision on how the 9ft felt , I am very happy with this rod, the first time out hooked and landed a 28 inch blue fish maybe 15lbs or so, poor blue fish he thought he would get away but no, the rod stood up to the fight with ease even being a M action rod. very happy with the rod, I like the medium action depending on what lure i'm using I think this helped contributed to the catch the action when bouncing the lure, also caught 2 more blues smaller ones the same trip. one important factor I feel is getting the right reel, matched up with the rod, I matched this rod up with a Battle 5000, 30lbs Power Pro braid, at times I casting into the wind to work the rocks, not one or even a small wind knot that made my night even better.
Proslight, action, feel

Give it a look
this is the first lets say real surf casting I have purchased, I always have went to some sporting goods store and bought one of the combos usually for a hundred bucks, but it was time to step up and take this fishing a little more serious. I am very happy and really like this pole, I purchased the 9ft MH model. I use it for primarily jetty fishing, the biggest difference I see in this pole than the others I have bought is, I can keep on casting with out getting tired because the others poles I have had are a little bit heavy. and the reels were pretty heavy also. I stepped up my reel choices from basic to a spin fisher V 5500 for this pole. I think it is a good match. one thing I noticed was when a fish strikes you know it and you feel it. dnt buy it for it sharp looks buy it because to me it is an awesome pole, I didn't buy this online, I picked up directly at the store, it was between a Tsunami Airwave or Okuma Cedros CSX, this one won me, the pole just felt better
Pros good feel, light, you feel every strike, and it just looks good

Lite but gets lots of wind knots/tangles
Design issue, need space the 1st ring guide further away from reel to allow room for line to untangle; need to include sloped/tapered forward design on the guides to reduce tangle further; aluminum reel seat tightener is not as good as graphite ones.
ProsVery lite rod
ConsEasy line tangle

I'm interested in the CSX-S-1002MH, but I need something that will fit in my trunk while driving customers for Uber. What is the length of the rod, when broken down? Does this come with a case? Will I be better off with the Nomad Travel Surf Rod?
1 Answers
I would advise getting a travel rod because of the sizes for each piece and it does come with a case.
