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.

What size would I pair with a Penn Spinfisher V 3500 spooled with 15lb braid? Looking for a great size for speckled trout
1 Answer
There are a few options that would pair well. Either the 7ft MH or the 7ft 6 M would pair nicely with the spinfisher 3500. Also will be a great set up for speckled trout and most inshore species.

It would be a good pairing, if your fishing deeper water with heavier jigs and need to stay on the bottom then the heavy version of this rod is a good choice.

I’m looking for something to use on snook and possibly tarpon. What do you suggest? I’ll be throwing mostly lures. But I may pitch. A few white baits too.
1 Answer
For snook and tarponI would go with the 7’6 MH and match it up with a 4000 or 5000 inshore reel. Ifyou want to go a bit lighter the 7’M is rated for lures 3/8-3/4oz and with a3000 reel can do pretty much anything you need it to do.

On the 7’9” x heavy,? What Daiwa Saltist or Penn Battle 2  spinning reel would be a good match
1 Answer
I would generally recommend pairing this rod model with a 4000 or 5000 size reel,

The Saltist 4500 would be a perfect match, Penns are usually slightly larger so a 4000 size would pair well.

I would highly recommend also looking at the Shimano Stradic FL or Daiwa Ballistic models to keep this set up nice and lightweight

I am getting the 7' 11'' M-H Fast.  Would a 4500 Penn Spinfisher be too heavy for this rod?  It's 14.5 oz.  The 3500 is only a half ounce lighter.  Does a Vanford balance it out better, being lighter?

The 4500 Spinfisher will work well with this rod, as will the Vanford. It all comes down to personal preference.

We would recommend the 7' Medium rated for 3/8-3/4oz lures. Allows you to do a little of everything and pairs well with a 3000 class inshore reel. If you trying to match up to a 4000 or 5000, check out the 7" Medium Heavy.

You should consider the 7, 7'6 Medium-Heavy models. If you are fishing for bigger snook and reds the Heavy models would be best but a 4000 size reel  would balance better with the heavy.

Looking to pair my Penn Clash 4000 with either a MH/H or 7/7.6 for fluke and stripped bass fishing. What do you suggest ?
1 Answer
I'd suggest the 7' for boat fishing or bank fishing. You may want to go with the 7'6" if you are fishing from shore and want to increase your casting distance. As far as choosing between the MH or H I would consider how heavy the lures and/or weight that you'll be using and select the one that falls most within the lure weight range of the rod.
