Terrific Casting
I live in Florida, am blessed to be surrounded with numerous inshore fishing opportunity. I added an older, bullet proof Shimano, Bait Runner reel, loaded with 30 lb.Suffix, braid. The casting performance of this combo is excellent.

Shimano Teramar TMSX80xH
Great rod. Plenty of backbone and sensitive tip to enable you to feel the bite. Heavy duty guides. Great rod for kings, bonito, and tarpon. Great rod for casting swim baits and 1-3 oz lures.

Perfect pier rod
This is the perfect pier rod bay rod. Built to last the concrete, very light, very sensitive, and at 8', it is the perfect pier rod to use 2nbait with. Much more wieldy than the short 9' surf rods and much more backbone than the light tackle Gotcha rods. If you're looking for a 2nbait rod for the bay, look no further.

Sanibel Tarpon Go To Rod
The 8ft XH Xfast is quickly becoming the rod of choice for tarpo guides in South West Florida. The soft tip plus backbone is awesome for clients' hook/land ratio. My girlfriend landed a slob snook over 45" thanks to this rod. I just ordered three more to pair with Van Staal VR 200's for tarpon/shark and big snook.
ProsVery durable guides Perfect tip for baitfishing big game fish Excellent value

Best rod value
I have 2 of these for redfish and trout and 1 as a light tackle offshore setup. Very sensitive and can cast light lures a mile. In my opinion this is the best rod at this value and I would take it over a few rods priced higher. The entire line can have you fishing trout to tarpon to dolphin offshore.

Plenty of backbone!!
I bought this rod and paired it with a Shimono Saragosa 6000 reel. It has a light enough tip to fish live bait but strong enough to handle any inshore fish. It is my go to rod for bull reds, tarpoon and cobia. I will also use it to cast plugs at dolphin offshore.
ProsSoft tip with plenty of backbone
ConsNone so far

Would a Penn Spinfisher 5500 or 6500 with 50lb braid be better for the XH model?

i have quantum cabo 50 ptse reel and i need to pair it with teremar rod for pier kingfish, but i do not know how long the rod i need and what action i want. thanks
1 Answer
The 8ft Heavy power fast action rod or the 8ft extra heavy extra fast action rod should be just fine. If you plan on using heavy sinkers, go with the Extra Heavy rod.

Would Penn spinfisher V 8500LL work on this rod for live lining herring in Hudson River
1 Answer
The 8500LL will be a little to big for this rod. I would suggest going with a 6500LL.

from juno florida asked:
December 15, 2015
will this work for big pier snook in florida and throwing gulfstream lures jigs
1 Answer
That should work well for that. The action and power of the rod should allow you to pull the snook away from structure that could break you off.

from boca raton Florida asked:
December 14, 2015
will a 6000 battle 2 fit good on this rod
1 Answer
That reel should be a good fit for the rod considering that it is extra heavy. It would also depend on what you are fishing for.
