Trevala Jigging Casting Rods Feature Details
  • Shimano TC4 Construction
    Shimano has engineered the new responsive TC4 Construction material to elevate your fishing experience. The TC4 Construction material wraps a double inner layer of advanced, dynamic T Glass with an inner and outer spiral of high modulus graphite. This breakthrough in design construction results in an extremely durable, crisp, yet lightweight rod.
  • Fuji Concept Alconite Guides
    A very strong and durable material, Alconite is the latest in a long line of ceramic rings developed by Fuji. Alconite is so durable it can be made thinner than any other ring, so strong it will hold up to all kinds of fishing demands. Alconite has an 80% greater compression strength and is 20% lighter than aluminum oxide, making it one of the toughest rings used for fishing, as well as one of the lightest.
  • Fuji Hardloy Guides
    The Hardloy guide is Fuji’s most popular guide and is produced from a special blend of high grade aluminum oxide. All Hardloy guides are diamond polished for decreased line wear and permanently mounted to the frame. This results in increased performance, corrosion resistance and greater heat dissipation.
  • Fuji Reel Seat
    Built to last Fuji reel seats are designed with graphite nylon bodies, exclusive S-4 Stainless Steel hoods, with lined cushioned inserts to offer a lightweight reel seat with superior strength. Uniform design for increased comfort and self aligned hoods provide a solid lockdown on your reel foot that will never back off while fishing.

Great Rod
I paired this rod with my Penn Fathom 12. It is an absolutely awesome combo for the fish that I use it for. I use 30 pound braid on it. I use it for Mangrove Snapper, Grunts, Black Seabass, Porgies, Triggerfish, Flounder, and Grouper. It is a great combo. The Trevala has lots of power for the bigger fish and is lots of fun to use.

One of the best Rods - Shimano TVC70ML Trevala Jigging Casting Rod
The Shimano TVC70ML is my second Trevala Jigging Rod. I also have the MH2. I use them for just about anything, but mostly bottom fishing. They are sensitive enough to feel the little nibbles and strong enough for large fish. I caught huge eels(by-catch) with ease while bottom fishing for Sea Bass, Cod, Pollack,etc.
ProsStrong and sensitive.

Awesome rod
Awesome all around versatile rod. Have not used mine but was impressed with my fishing guide’s over a week of fishing the Sea of Cortez out of San Carlos. Everything from jigging to throwing a popper to trolling for marlin & sailfish. It handled 20# YT to 75# bill fish without a problem. Love the two piece design for storage & transport. Plan to buy more as $’s allow.
ProsLight weight, strong with good feel for the bite. Handled bill fish no problem

Good bottom rod and jigging
I bought this rod since I snapped my Penn jigging rod which was a 5'8" and paired it with my Torium 30 spooled with powerpro. I used it for the red snapper season in Florida and it pulled up some beasts in the 80/90 depth using a fish finder rig with a 6 oz. Lead. Then I took it to the Bahamas and I fished for Strawberry groupers in 150 foot with a Shimano glow jig and caught some nice grouper and even caught a Mahi on the drop? Have only had rod a few months but feel it will be in my arsenal for awhile. I feel the 5'8" would have a tad more back bone to it.
August 31, 2018
One of the very best reels that I have ever purchased in my 30 years of fishing experience. Excellent quality, excellent performance!!! I am truly happy with this Shimano Reel. I strongly recommend it...You will NOT be disappointed.

Light jigging rod
This is my second trevala light jigging rod of the same size. Excellent for stripers, sea bass and albies. Has enough power to handle sizable fish yet sensitive enough for finesse jigging.

Already own a few of these, bought and matched with a pink avet sxj 6/4 for my Gf, perfect setup, can use with snook fishing all the way to tuna jigging, light, strong, can really lean into a fish with it yet small enough to fish with all day.

Great rod!
I now have four of them, and like them a lot. Very light weight but powerful. The can handle anything we fish for in offshore North Carolina. Jigging, pitch baits, casting to breaking fish. Well worth the price. Can’t go wrong with the Trevala rods.
ConsNone at all

I have a couple of Trevalas that I use for jigging in FL and love them! However I just moved up north to VA and am getting into this rockfish thing - so my question: would one of the Trevalas (heavy or extra heavy with the gimbal butt) be a solid choice for trolling the large tandem jig rigs behind a 4-6 oz inline trolling weight?
1 Answer
Yes, that would be perfect for that style of fishing.

What rod would you pair with a torium 16 for mostly jogging for yellowtail
1 Answer
I feel like the Medium-Heavy would most likely be the best fit, but the best way to determine which rod is right for you is to select the model where the jig weight rating falls within the range that you will be using most.

Does the trevala two piece rods come with a rod tube? If not, what is recommended for them for airline carry on?
1 Answer
The two piece model (TVC66M2) does not come with a rod tube. It is a 70/30 split and the longest section measures 55 in. This may be a little too long for an airline carry-on. I'd suggest contacting the airline in which you are flying to inquire about the size limits.

Any suggestions -- Looking to fish both Montauk (stripped bass drift w/ 3-5 oz diamond jigs and live eel at night ~ 60ft deep) and drift/bottom reefs in south East Florida (snapper, grouper, etc) in 100-140 ft. Will probably pair with a Torium 20 or 30. I usually use 50 LB Braid and 30 Mono - 150 yd Top Shot. Ideally - a 2-piece rod with a gimbal / thanks for your help.

Steven, you would need to go with a heavy or Xtra heavy due to the fact they are the only models in the Trevala Line that come equiped with a gimbal.
