Bought a two of these (one conventional and one spinning) a couple of years ago and no complaints. Great for live baiting from NJ piers. Both paired with Shimano reels and Power Pro. Handles very nicely.

Best rod for multiple set up!

The rod is great enough for me to use for Striper and Rockfish. Also, strong enough for fishing Halibut. As right now am using for 3 setup.

TLS80HBBL - Excellent Medium Duty Stick
June 6, 2019
This rod can do a lot of work for striper, cod, deep drop, schoolie tuna, and bluefish applications. Feels very sturdy and worthy of bigger game, but is not a total pool cue. Love the grooved fore grip, also showcased in the Terez lineup. Very happy with this rod. The possibilities are endless.
ProsStout Comfortable Grip

This rod has great sensitivity and you can pull the big ones out of their holes. It's light enough to be fished all day without getting worn down and looks great. Paired it with a Shimano Torium 30 and it worked perfectly.
ProsLightweight Very sensitive Strong Backbone

Would the Saragosa 10000 be a good match ?  For Tarpon and school tuna 20-80 lbs
1 Answer
The Saragosa 10000 should pair really well and allow for a very versatile combo.
