Great all around rod!
August 13, 2021
Picked one up last year, never had such a quality rod. Use for freshwater bass in the Northeast. Caught some great fish on it, throwing spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, texas rigs, swimjigs, even drop shots. Super sensitive, but super strong. Dragged some big ones out the weeds with it. Great all-around rod.

What isnít there to say about a St. Croix rod? I own the 8 footer MH I use for tarpon on the beach. Itís light strong and durable. Ive had it for 12 yrs. and itís still going strong. Better yet, its a st croix and backed by their legendary warranty and customer support. If you donít know about how these guys back their rods, look it up. Best in the business. Most of their higher end models are made right here in the USA also. What more do you want?

My 4th St. Croix and it performs exactly as you'd want. Light and sensitive w/ enough backbone for larger redfish.

Paied this rod with a 4000 stratic for inshore fishing and it is a great combo. Good for trout, rockfish, flounder, puppy drum, and sheepshead. Rod is sensitive enough to feel the bite and plenty of backbone to bring in the big one!

Rod can do it all

Love the 8' versions to do it all. Set at a price point that makes it easy to get into a premium rod. Pretty tough guides!

My father in law has a tide master. Uses it for anything inshore and nearshore at wrecks. He loves it. Medium light action.

Great inshore rods

I love the Tidewater series! Not only are they affordable but they are great inshore rods. I have 3 of them and use them for stripers, blues, albies, blackfish and other bottom fishing species. To me they are the perfect all around inshore rod.

Fantastic light rod for casting small lures, using it often for sight casting to flats feeders and couldn't be happier. Light to carry, casts very well and plenty of backbone for larger fish.

Good all around inshore rod

Very high quality. I compared this rod to St Croix Avid inshore models and decided I liked Tidemaster better. Light weight and has a nice soft action, compared to my St Croix 7' MH Premier.
  • USA product
  • 8 foot rods can be a little hard to transport

St Croix tidemaster

Paired this with regular shimano Stradic, 15# fins windtamer, 25 # leader and throw jerkbaits up into Georgia marsh grass and crush the reds. 7 foot 6 inch mh fast. Too heavy for the light jigs I throw for trout but perfect for a big weighted jerk bait. I have also used it with a weighted popping cork. It has a little too stiff action for my liking for the popping cork. Medium fast would probably work better for my style.

Fantastic light rod
December 17, 2018
I have three of these rods primarily for casting for schooling stripers and shallow water casting. I've caught small perch to 23" stripers with this rod. It's a tough rod and has great sensitivity.
  • I don't have to worry about a broken tip while hooking up with a 10 or 15 lb striper.
  • Expensive. I've found some custom rods for less money but I am not sure if they are as good.

I use these for inshore Reds, Flounder and anything else that may bite. I also throw them at a pond across the street from my house for bass when I canít get out in the saltwater. Probably wonít ever buy anything other than the Tidemaster again.
  • Quality is awesome
  • Top Company with great warranty
  • Amazing feel while fishing it

I have the TIC80mhf conventional rod...what's a good reel for that?
1 Answers
There are tons of options for that rod, depending on your preferences. It would help to know if you prefer a lever or star drag, and what you are fishing for. For general bottom fishing and light trolling inshore New Jersey I use an Avet SX.
