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.

This is an awesome rod for the money. you get a 2 piece with 1 piece feel. light weight and casts great. really well made. If you're going to buy one rod,I highly recommend the Mojo Surf for everyday surf fishing.

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.

Bought my 12 foot 5 years ago from Tackle Direct and registered the rod. While cleaning gear, 3 of the eyes popped out. I called St. Croix and they are sending me a new top section. Very cool.
ProsExcellent shark and big redfish rod. Pulled in a 150# tarpon too.

Love the handle
November 19, 2019
It’s a pretty slim handle to me, almost like im just holding the actual blank but this rod is a beast in the surf. Although I’ve heard of stories about peoples snapping on them they’re still great rods

I wouldn’t recommend it
July 21, 2019
It was great for the short time that it lasted. Unfortunately it doubled over on a cast and I’ve since upgraded. I would definitely recommend spending a bit more on an Avid Surf.
Don’t my experience steer you away from the brand, they have the best customer service in the business hands down!
ProsSt. Croix customer service
ConsThe mojo is the only rod in their lineup that I wouldn?t recommend.

Very disppointed!

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.

Awsome power in a lightweight rod
June 10, 2019
Purchased the mojo surf for hybrid and srtiper fishing at local hydro dams where i live along the ohio river. This rod casts a mile, is lightweight yet has the power to haul big fish from extreme currents. I love it!!

This has been my go to surf rod for years. It truly can do everything but its kind of a jack of all trades and master od none. You can work absolutely and lure or plug well, but not as well as a custom design or specialty rod is capable of. That being said, on a budget, go for this rod. Also throwing 4 oz. with this rod is very unrealistic and so is 3/4 oz. 1.5-2 is the sweet spot and the real rating should be 1-2.5oz.
Prosprice, versatility
Consunrealistic lure weights

Will the tsunami salt x 6000 pair well with the 10’6†mojo for stripers

From the specs that we've seen the 6000 saltX would pair very well with the 10'6 mojo surf

What size penn spinfisher v would pair up with this rod best?

The 4500 or 5500 spinfisher would pair well with the mojo

August 26, 2018
Hi which Penn Spinfisher V would work best with this rod? Also it says 20 lb line, so I assume that is braided line. Will 20 lb get ideal casting distance? Will 30 lb braid slow down the casts? Thank you, NK
1 Answer
You can get the 30 pound without hindering casting distance especially if your using super slick power pro(braid with a waxy coating that goes through the guides smoother increasing your casting distance)

Planning on pairing this 10'6" mojo with an emblem pro, throwing plugs and targeting stripers. Which Emblem size do you recommend for this rod: the 5000 or 5500?
1 Answer
The 5000 size or the 5500 size would be compatible for the 10'6'' Mojo rod. The 5500 size reel just has a deeper spool for better line capacity.

I'm planning on pairing this with a Van Staal spinning reel but not sure which size between the vs150 and vs200. I plan to mainly use it for plugging. Throwing sp minnows and bucktail jigs with the occasional cut bait. Targeting stripers and halibut and large surf perch here on the California Coast. What do you suggest?
1 Answer
Jon, I highly recommend going with the vs 150 it will be light enough that you will enjoy throwing plugs all day with it, yet strong enough to reel in what ever you hook up with. Its An excellent striper reel, and would definitely have the power to reel in a large Halibut.
