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.

It's good
May 5, 2015
I've used this rod for over a year now, and I do like it a lot. I mostly use it as my bait fishing stick, but have used it for heavier plugs, and metal as well when the surf is rough, and casting distance is a factor. It casts the range good enough, but gets a little soft towards the higher end of the rating... I've thrown 8oz on it before, but I wouldn't lean into the cast as I'd do with lighter loads on there.... That's not really a negative as the baits weight does put it slightly over the rods stated rating. A couole things I didn't like was the fact that purchased the rod as new, used it, and later found the bottom, and top section to have different serial numbers on them, making the great warranty this company offers useless. The different numbers lead me to believe that the rod I recieved may of been a return, a factory mix up, or one of the refurbished rods they sell at a discount. Another thing I noticed was that the reel seat was a little loose, and that it did seem to loosen up on its own even when tightened down before heading out. I have a penn ssv7500, and when a big fish is on, I can feel the reel flexing in the hoods of the reel seat, and that is not a good feeling at all. I ended up having to use hockey tape for added support and security.
ProsOne piece feel with a 70/30 split. Throws the range adequately with Plenty of backbone to pull big fish out of heavy current, and rips.
ConsReel seat loosens up... Seems to hold some reels better than others.

Broke at the 70/30 split on 4th outing at the canal
July 27, 2020
I chose this rod based on reviews and St Croix's reputation, but rather disappointed with this rod as it snapped cleanly at the 70/30 split after hooking up on a striper at Cape Cod Canal. Rod is barely 3 months old and only used 4 times. I have this paired with a Gosa 10k reel and it easily casts to the middle third of the canal with the right lure, but not impressed with the durability so far. I have a warranty claim started - I'll post more when St Croix responds.

July 21, 2019
It was great for the short time that it lasted. Unfortunately it doubled over on a cast and Ive since upgraded. I would definitely recommend spending a bit more on an Avid Surf.
Dont my experience steer you away from the brand, they have the best customer service in the business hands down!

First time tried on 3C the top tip was damaged even with a protection soft-rubber bead. The rod came in without a serial number. Thanks SC employees helped me to register the rod. Would recommend purchasing to a SC rod one level higher than this one and made in USA.

Not as quality as it should be.
June 25, 2019
At this point I have had 3 10'6 mojos and all three have imploded themselves throwing well within the weight range. The first two st croix said there was a manufacturing mistake and they were defective but now two days ago the third rod EXPLODED throwing a 3oz pencil at the CCC. I do not recommend this rod spend the extra money and get a higher end rod or a different brand entirely.
ProsWhen it works it fishes well and catches fish
Conswhen it doesnt, it tends to exploded on itself.

1 Answer
A rod that can be used for both surf and boat are hard to come by a 7 foot length is great for a boat but anything really longer like the 8 foot is just to long but would be a good choice for the surf. A 7'6" length rod will probably be your best all around length something in a mh-fast action.

1 Answer

Trying to pair a nice reel with the 9' mss90mmf2 model. Considering the Tsunami line up. 4000 or 6000? Suggestion? Thanks 
1 Answer
If you are fishing a rocky or heavy structured area I would recommend the 6000 for more stopping power, preventing your fish of getting you hung up in the structure. If this is not a concern then the 4000 would do just fine and be a little more lightweight and comfortable to cast all day!

I would recommend using a 70/30 split mainly because when loading the rod and fighting a fish the bend in the rod is not going to bend within the handle like other rods do.

I just received my first mojo and ordered another. The question I have may seem silly but, the first guide nearest the reel, should it be large as with other surf rods. This seems small liking it to a casting rod guide.
1 Answer
Many newer generation surf rods are using much smaller guides than older surf rods. The reason for this is that the majority of surf fisherman are now using braided lines that are much smaller in diameter, therefore the oversized initial guide is not necessary.

Yes, this case can easily handle the Mojo surf and the VS200. The Mojo Surf 9' breaks down into a 6' and 3' lengths. So when it is broken down into two pieces it is still short enough to fit in the Plano 4254 case.

1 Answer
The casting distance of the Mojo series is phenomenal thanks to the easy load of the rod paired with their low rider guides. If I were looking for a rod longer than 10' and was going to be throwing closer to 3oz's more often than 2oz's I would go with the "SCR-1029" MSS106MHMF2. If 10' was long enough than I would choose the "SCR-1027" MSS100MMF2.
