    Great rod for the money.
    June 3, 2018
    I have paired a MH 7.5 and a MH 7 foot with Tranx 400 reels, and they are about perfect for trolling and casting for king mackerel from my kayak. Once I can buy a couple more of these setups, I intend to leave my heavier tackle at home unless I plan to bottom fish next to the oil rigs.
    ProsTough, good price, fairly light weight.
    By Bill
    Great rod for the money
    May 26, 2017
    This is my second TMS MH rod. It is a great rod for the money. My 4 year old rod is 7'6" I bought it for slip cork fishing and throwing top water lures. I am hoping the shorter rod will be my new favorite for working a Cajun Thunder, twitch baits and heavy jigs in deep water. I haven't used it enough to decide on the shorter length.

    Both rods are matching with Shimano Ci4 using 20# braid. They can stop almost anything I catch in the Intracoastal waterway here in NE FL/Jacksonville. I have caught redfish up to 38" in a foot of water.

    A medium heavy action combined with a fast action tip is gentle enough to toss live bait a mile and not tear it up. It will also sling a top water plug or Bomber Long A with tremendous accuracy. Flats fishing is about hitting the target. These rods are great.

    I also carry two T Allen high carbon micro guide 7'8" medium action with extra fast tips. They are the most sensitive rods I have ever seen. I use them for 1/8 jigs and lately an Unfair Advantage shrimp.

    Both rods are also paired with Shimano Ci4 2500 and 10# braid. The rod is more than double the cost of my Teramar. They will cast a tiny weight across town! I use them the most. If a fish taps your lure it's like getting slapped in the hand amazing sensitivity.

    The last rod on my boat is a Star Rod - Plasma 7' heavy action with 20# braid. It is rated for baits up to 2oz but can handle double that if bottom fishing.

    I use it for soaking blue crab pieces for redfish, big live mullet and trolling. The rod is a beast and doesn't cast very well it's too stiff and too short. It works very well in specific circumstances.

    All my rods are one piece. I am old enough to need hi-viz line. I get out two or three times a week.

    Fish don't fear me....

    ProsGreat price very durable.
    ConsMy 4 year old rod is showing some rust on eyes. I fish only saltwater. They are rinsed off 95% of the time.
    By Van
    Great inexpensive rod
    February 12, 2020
    I ended up getting a second one of these for the boat. These are great rods with good components. They are also light and sensitive. I have either a 4k stradic on this and the other one I have, 7' med. The combination makes for a feather weight setup that I can cast all day with either.
    By Van
    Another great value
    February 12, 2020
    I am not sure what the differences between the regions but I needed a good, light, sensitive rods for inshore fishing with a 4k to 5k reel and this really fits the bill. I am very happy with it and I am happy that it's also $60 to $150 cheaper than the rods I was originally looking at.

    A do it all rod
    January 11, 2020
    I‚€™ve been using the 7‚€™ Spinning 1/2 to 1-1/2oz model for a few years and it‚€™s a workhorse. Great for throwing lures at stripers and bluefish under 24‚€ or soaking bait for smaller inshore species. Throws its weight rating well, I use it more as a 1/4-1oz rod but it‚€™s perfectly capable of throwing towards the upper end.

    I wouldn‚€™t say it‚€™s under powered but it starts to loose its backbone on hard fighting fish over 20‚€ - with that said, it doesn‚€™t feel weak at all and can handle larger fish.

    It reminds me of an improved ugly stik as far as versatility and toughness go, but with more sensitivity and better suited for throwing lures.
    ConsGuides are on the weak/bendy side and need a little extra care to prevent rust, but overall still a great rod

    Absolutely loved my first experience with this rod. it casts an epoxy jig miles and can handle small poppers as well. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that the rod had some cork damage out of the box. I fixed it with a little super glue.

    Perfect combo. The fast tip and lumber rod are exactly my style. I can‚€™t wait to put Mr Snookey on it!

    Great All Around Rod
    November 1, 2018
    Have lots of Shimano Teramar rods in spinning and casting. These spinning rods throw Redfins and buck tails long distances with good accuracy but also work well with live bait under a cork. Pair them with a Stradic 4000 and easily control midsize stripers in the 12 - 20lb range. Great action keeps fish hooked up even with beginners at the controls. Highly recommended.
    ProsLight. Accurate. Easy to control.

    What would be a better reel for the TMS-80H - saragosa 5K or 6K or something else.  Thank you in advance.
    1 Answer
    Either Saragosa would be a great fit on that rod, there is only a minimal difference in weight between the two. Decision between the two should be based off of the braided line you plan on using. Heavier than 30lb, bump up to the 6000 to maximize your line capacity.

    1 Answer
    Either one of those would work, and the decision will come down to how much weight you are looking to cast with it as well as the size of Tarpon and Cobia you typically run into. 

    That said, I can tell you that the TMSX80XH is probably the rod we sell the most to anglers looking for a Tarpon rod...

    1 Answer
    The durability of the blank from the MF is different from the F meaning slightly more durable/more backbone, therefor the slight difference in line weight. The Fast action isn't much heavier so i would advise using the F rod for the reel your matching it with.

    The Shimano Teramar is a very sensitive rod for bottom fishing. For surf fishing and casting the longer rods are definitely great for gaining distance from the surf. They are good rods to choose from in the Shimano lineup . Either a 7'6" or an 8' would be a good rod for surf casting.
