Love The Reel Seat
We have several Terez rods and have been using them for about three years now and haven't had any issues with them functionally. The white rods will yellow after a while but it doesn't affect their function. One spot there these rods excel are their reel seats. We use these with big live liners to target sharks and while most rods you can feel the reels squirm as a fish makes a run, these rods have the reels locked down. My main fishing buddy and I are up to 7 of these Terez rods in 3 different weight classes and we have nothing bad to say about them in their performance.

Perfect Rod for Shimano Stella 30000
I bought this rod for shark fishing. Paired it with my new shimano stella 30000. It has a perfect length and a perfect bend for when I get those runs on the sharks. Have not landed any sharks yet on it. But it works perfectly. Will buy another in the future and maybe a lighter rod for some lighter reels.

awesome rod
Purchased rod to be paired with Penn Slammer III 7500 for tuna and mahi and anything else that makes the rod bend. Loaded reel with 50 lb power pro. Since weather is not conducive for offshore took it to the river and pulled a pair of 60 lb catfish. The combo reduced fight time and holy cow was it fun. Wanted to loose the drag and keep playing but didn't want to completely exhaust the fish as this was catch and release day for me. Just wished sold in the other colors...Awesome rod!
ProsEverything. Love the second grip.
ConsWish sold in other available colors.

Does 7'2 MH or M pair better with Stella FJ 5000 as a all around combo? Such as inshore tautog or striper fishing ? What is the lure weight rated for M and MH 7'2?
1 Answer
The power of the rod does not necessarily matter when pairing with a specific reel. Medium or Medium-Heavy depends on your preference. The Medium 7'2 would be the best option when fishing striper and tautog. Unfortunately, Shimano does not have lure ratings for the Terez rods.

Both rods use the same blank. The difference is in the guides. The TZS78HBLK (Heavy) has Stainless Alconite Fuji TK guides, and the TZS78XHBLK (Extra Heavy) has Fuji LC guides. The LC guides are more conducive to casting heavier braided lines.

Mostly for tuna, yellowtail and White Sea Bass in the 05 to 80 pound range but occasionally larger. Can this rod fit this reel or do I need to go with something a little larger like the Tallus blue water. The only thing I don‚€™t like about the Tallus is you can‚€™t get anything longer than a 7‚€™8‚€ and they don‚€™t come with a gimbal but.
1 Answer
I would definitely suggest the Terez over the Tallus for your applications. The 50-100 lb. line rated models would be the most appropriate. I think the 9500 is more of a reel than you will need in terms of size. Also, the reel seat on the 7'2" models is not large enough to fit a Slammer III larger than the 7500, you can however fit the 9500 on the 7'8" models, but I don't feel it is a good size match.

I would choose between the SHM-1658 which is the 7'8 Heavy, with moderate-fast action rated for 50 to 100lb test braided line. Or the SHM-1656-6 which is the 7'2 medium-heavy with fast action that is rated for 40 to 80lb test braided line. If the 7'8 is too heavy for you, than the 7'2 would match well with your reel. But, both make a good match. It is your preference of the action you would enjoy.

I am interested in a spinning outfit for Mahi Mahi fishing at the buoys in the Hudson canyon area. I will use it on one of the many fine New Jersey party boats during Tuna chunking trips. I'm leaning towards the Saragosa 6000SW coupled with a Terez but need advice on the size and pairing. Bucktails, soft baits, cut bait are typical. I also want to use it to snag bunker while striper fishing. Is the Saragosa 6000 appropriate in size and what rod would be a good pair? I will be using mono due to rules on the party boat, is 30lb mono appropriate?
1 Answer
The Terez and the Saragosa would be a great pair, but there may be some issues due to the party boat factor. The Saragosa 6000 should not be used with 30lb mono. You would have to either size down to 12-15lb mono or get a bigger size reel to fit the thicker line. Ideally you would use braid for this application but like you said you cannot. The reason why 30lb wouldn't work is that it would hold less than 100 yards of it, which is simply not enough to tackle offshore pelagic species.

What Terez can I use of vertical jigging?
1 Answer
That would depend on what kind of fish that you were jigging for. If you give us a call we should be able to pair you with the model that is appropriate for your needs.

Would a 7'2" Heavy 50-100lb be suitable for an 8000 Saragosa. Also, would this rod and reel work for throwing 1-4 oz jigs on the bottom and live bait?
1 Answer
I put the rod and reel together and they felt very solid together. They would work well, but the rod is a bit heavy. If you gave us a call or a bit more information on what exactly you are fishing for, we should be able to help you find the perfect rod and reel combination.

I have an 8000 Saragosa and I want a rod for throwing jigs (flairhawks) for snook around bridges from 1-3 oz, would one of these rods be suitable for what I intend on doing? I hear people recommend 8' rods. What weight would suit my needs the best?
1 Answer
The best Terez rod for this application will be the Paul

Is the 7'2" ML Terez good for fishing live bait such as little mullet and does it have the 3rd extra fighting grip at the top? Also would this rod be fine to pair up with a Stradic CI4+? If not what rod with TC4 construction would be good to pair up with it?
1 Answer
This rod would work for fishing little mullet, it is a bit light though. The rod does not have a 3rd fighting grip. This would word with the largest size Ci4+, but the reel might be too small for that.

I would like to match my Avet HX 5/2 reel spooled with 80 lb braid with a Shimano Terez rod. Thinking about a TZC66XXH,TZC66XH orTZC70XH. I want to use this for any Pelagic East Coast or Gulf of Mexico Which one would you recommend?
1 Answer
With 80lb braid on that reel i would recommend either the 66XH or the 66XXH. If you plan on doing some live baiting with it the softer tip of the XH would be a better option.
