Perfect pole
September 15, 2021
Called and asked for help looking for a lighter off shore pole than the ole heavy level wind for pulling up 15 pound bottom fish using up to 5 oz. lead heads. Most clients like spinning reals for easy use. I was recommended to try this pole and it fits perfect. Just pulled up a 12 pound lingcod on 15 pound braid and a 4oz. Jig head with six inch rubber grub.
Pros
  • Perfect length for crowded boat use. Nice balance with Penn III 4000.
Cons
  • A little expensive for some clients.

Cons
  • Probably none to me.

So far no issues with the new mojo for me, have read some are having the tips broken very easily. Landed a 44" drum and did just fine.

Disappointment
May 25, 2021
Disappointed that this company doesn't stand by their product. I received my 7'6'' medium action rod May 18th, 2021. May 21st, 2021 my rod broke from running line through the guides. Like many of the other negative reviews, it seems the new mojo inshore rods have a tendency to break easily at the tips. My rod broke about 6'' of the tip off from a slight bend in the rod from running line through the guides. Didn't get to fish the rod once. I am disappointed at the quality of the new rods from St Croix. In the past I have bought 10 mojo salt rods of varying line weights having no issues with rods breaking. I have the same rods old models mojo inshore rods to this day. Seems the St Croix team has decided to maximize profits and decrease costs, meaning a bad product. I would suspect the material to make the rod blanks has changed significantly. The old mojo inshore medium action rods ran at 140$, the new ones are 180$. To top it off, you have to pay an additional 50$ to replace the rod, making an originally 180$ now 230$ from an already increased price from 140$ for the old models. SAVE YOUR MONEY. Look for a better product somewhere else with a company that has a REAL warranty.

Glad I did a little research on my spinning rod purchase. St. Croix makes some super high quality rods at a fair price. This is one of 3 that I purchased to upgrade my collection, can't wait to use the other two!
Pros

Bought two and going to add a couple more. Thankfully St Croix didn't slap these with their purple mojo nonsense. Much cleaner look now with the same amazing St Croix performance.
