Scientists. Those guys want to take credit for everything. Well, while they're sitting around patting themselves on the back about ibuprofen, we'll keep making the world a better place by developing new rods. Like the Mojo Surf rods. Built from premium SC2 graphite, these bad boys are topped off with specialized, weight-saving surf guides with zirconium ring that sends casts off into the stratosphere. High-performance surf rods at a great value for folks who put it all on the line.

Throws 4oz + a bunker head no problem. Lots of backbone. Paired with either a blue yonder or fathom spooled with 20lb mono, it casts a mile.

The mullet head Heaver
I desired this rod as a heaver for spider sinkers and baitfish heaved out into the Texas gulf coast, and am very well pleased running it with an Avet MX reel and 20# Prospec Mono. It exceeded my expectations on quality, and its performance so far has been ahead of my abilities to deploy it. It is also been a good surface iron to pitch trolley line out for slider line kingfishing off piers. Its a long heavy thing i discovered so I ended up getting a 10 foot surf rod and smaller Avet SX reel so i can prowl around the surf and Jettys while this setup soaks bait.
ProsWell made, priced well, casts well - better than I can so far. As usual, Tackle Direct fast reliable tracked and shipped, FAST, no BS service.
ConsIts a beast to transport even broken down since its about 7'9" on the long section. So far strapping it to rooftop racks or danglin' it off a pickup tailgate in a lumber store PVC sched. 40 "rod barn" is the way to go. Trying an experiment next to see if it will fit in a car by dropping the rear seat and stuffing a lot of the butt end in the trunk.

Nice surf rod
Everything flies with this rod. Kind of weird where it breaks down, not in half. More like 70/30. So the handle has no eyes on it. Think that's ok really, unless you're expecting to break it down to fit in a small car or trunk. It's also probably part of why they charge an extra fee for "oversized" packaging. The rod arrived in a very heavy cardboard tube that's too nice to just throw away. Rod is really a huckster, I'm throwing all my striper lures 15-20 yards further with this rod and a new Daiwa Coastal reel. Only complaint would be that for this price point, the rod should have a hook anchor on the butt end of the rod. Minor annoyance.

My favorite surf rod
I have a few St Croix legends and some nice rods but oddly this one is my new fav. I took it this weekend and threw 5oz and a chunk and it was just great! No I haven't caught a fish on it yet, but I'm pretty damn sure it will do perfect for a big red. I have used a heavier mojo and bought this one for a little more action during fish fighting. I feels like the perfect middle of the road rod. I really expected these to not be as good since they made in MX and not the USA like other rods, but for $250 which ain't cheap, the rod performed.
ProsConstruction, cast ability, value

Good rod, seems to be strong and made well. Love St Croix for giving good price option rods. THis one is not cheap, but better then most and not as much $ as going custom or ledgend series.
ProsMojo rods are good/better then most for the $$

Love these rods
I have 2 of the St Croix MSC120HMF2 Mojo Surf Casting Rods, I throw anywere from 6n normal chunk bait to 8 n heavy bait (full 12 inch fish), this rod really performs. I have both paired with Avet SX reels - I use heavier reels for bigger bait, up to Avet LX size with no issues.
ProsBackbone, off the shelf rods I have used without going custom, great customer service from Tackle Direct and St Croix

Would you recommend a saragosa 5000, 6000, or 8000 set up with these rods of would they be too heavy?
The Shimano 5000 or 6000 would be great reels to match with St. Croix Mojo Surf Casting Rods. Thank you for considering TackleDirect for your fishing needs.

How will this rod pair with a, Shimano Stella, STL6000SWBHG reel?
The St. Croix Mojo Surf Casting Rods would pair up with the Shimano Stella SWB STL6000SWBHG Saltwater Spinning Reel very nicely. This combo will be very balanced and the reel with the higher gear ratio will work out nicely for surf fishing.

Does the 10'6'' casting model also have glass in the tip of the rod? Does glass in the tip of the rod make the tip anymore fragile?
The 10'6 casting model does not have glass in the tip. Its only in the Mojo bass crank bait rod and the 10'6 surf spinning model.

What reel would you use with a 11` st coix rmojo surf casting rod?
This rod would would pair well with a Shimano Stratic 6000FJ or 8000FJ. I would recommend the 8000FJ if you were primarily using the combo for throwing baits with heavier lead. The 6000FJ would be ideal for lures and lighter weights when bait fishing.

October 27, 2013
looking at this rod to used with an Abut 6501 for plugging 1oz - 3.5oz plugs/SP Minnows, does this rod have the backbone to handle larger plugs? Having a hard time finding a well balanced rod for plugging with my Abu's 5501 and 6501 models, thanks
Yes this rod will be able to handle heavier plugs upwards of 5oz.

from kentucky asked:
September 8, 2013
Honestly I have a vicious hook set. Have broken plenty of rods because of that reason. Is the mojo worth the money? Is it durable? Can it take the pressure?
Yes, the backbone of the mojo surf in the medium heavy to a heavy would suffice a relatively high impact hook setting.
