i like the way i can feel the light hit of a flounder and the strength to haul in a 12-15 lb. nasty mean blue fish!

Great sensitivity for bottomfishing!

Feel the lightest taps on the line. For bottom fishing, this rod handles 8 oz lead easily. Pair it with a medium 4000-5000 sized Reel and you'll have upper hand in most battles against Seabass, ling, Cod, etc...
ProsLight, sensistive, good backbone for hook setting. Great bottomfishing rod!

I paired this rod with a Socorro 6000 at the suggestion of the shop I bought it from. I now want to put a lighter reel on it. I was thinking a stradicfk 5000 or a clash 4000. What is the weight formula/ratio for making a well balanced combo? What size reel would you suggest for using 20 or 30 lb braid with this rod?
1 Answer
There is no real formula per se balancing out a rod and reel. It Just means that neither the tip of the rod or the reel weight is heavier feeling then the other both weights should cancel eachother out. A stradic 5000 fk would pair well with this rod or a 6000 saragosa

I have this and love it so far. I use 30lb power pro. I wonder where the 20-50lb power pro rating comes from? Similar and heavier rods seem to be in the 15-30lb range. Especially with a 1/2 - 2oz lure rating. How does the heavier rating come into play?
1 Answer
With this specific blank from Shimano the line weight gradually goes up when the power of the rod goes up.

Looking to pair this rod up with a Shimano Thunnus 8000 to live line bunker and throw a popper at Stripers.  What action and length would you pair up the 8000 with?  Or, do you think the 6000 is a better fit for the rod?
1 Answer
We unfortunately do not carry that rod anymore. The 6000 would have balanced better than a 8000.

How is the Shimano TMSE70MH spinning rod as a light tackle caster from shore?
1 Answer
The Teramar is a great rod for all light to medium inshore applications. That particular model would be great for casting lighter plugs and jigs under 2 oz and lighter weight and bait style fishing.
