Cant expect nothing less than excellent product from St Croix. Great backbone, strong guides and made in USA. Great value for the money. Can't go wrong with this rod.

I'm a St.Croix guy, so I'm a little biased towards their products, but the tidemaster series is perfect for all inshore fishing applications! I use them from my kayak for stripers and blues out east in New York and CT and it handles well across the board!
ProsGreat movement and sensibility
Conswill break easily if you don't tale care of it well!

St Croix TIS70MHF Inshore Spinning Rod
This is my first St. Croix rod & very impressed. Light weight, well balanced, great sensitivity. I teamed it up with my Penn Spinfisher V SSV4500LL and absolutely love the combo! Will be buying more St Croix in future!

Only used in freshwater for bass fishing but great sensitivity and plenty of backbone for driving hooks through tube bodies.

great middle of the road rod
Bought this rod for my wife, paired with a shimano stradic 3000fj. Great combo for jetty and bay fishing. Tidemaster seem to be good choice rod for under $200. Never have issues with St Croix rods and think they offer a dramatic selection for anything you're fishing for.
Proslight, cast well

My go to rod
I love this rod. It's my workhorse,I have it paired up with a VS VM150 loaded with 30lb braid. I have landed Fluke to 9lbs with it and it has the backbone to stand up much larger fish....hopefully it sees some striper action soon.
ProsAmerican made Fast tip Comfortable grip

Good plugging rod
Bought TIS70HF for plugging sod banks for stripers and bluefish. No stripers yet but a few nice bluefish. It Replaced a similar older Premier rod that was stolen. This rod casts 3/4 to 1.5 oz lures and has good backbone for handling bigger fish. It has heavier action and is much stiffer than the new premier 7' heàvy action. I am very happy with the tidemaster.
ProsExcellent action for casting and retrieving 1-1 1/2 oz plugs (sp Minnow, 5 1/2" rapala magnum). Stiff and strong to handle larger blues and bass. Butt and fore grip length are perfect. Reasonable price.
ConsI prefer the heavy single footed guides on the older Premier rod I had that had similar heavy action.

Very good for catching Blue Fish and Sea Bass, very light and powerful. I use it with a Shimano Stella 5000 and it matches well. I like this rod a lot.

Best. Rod. Ever.
Very strong, light and it's an awesome rod. I have caught trophy stripers, monster blues and fluke with this rod. Paired with a Penn SSV4500 and loaded with 20b braid and this combo will catch anything you encounter.

Second to None
St Croix Tidemasters are the best in the business for light tackle spinning and trolling along the east coast. I've purchased numerous Tidemaster spinning and conventional rods for use on the Chesapeake, the Inland Waterway in Northern Florida, and off the coast of Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland. Have caught stripers up to 25 pounds, weakfish to 5 pounds, fluke to 4 pounds, red drum to 20 pounds and have even landed multiple 75+ pound cownose rays. I use my seven and eight foot Tidemasters for all light tackle trolling, topwater, jigging and spinning needs. Plus St Croix has an exchange program which is superb and their warranties are the best in the business.

Perfect Inshore Rod
I bought this rod for both jigging for fluke and throwing poppers at stripers off the boat and under bridges. It has performed great, love the grip, weight, and feel of this rod!
ConsThis is my second St. Croix I bought this summer. Makes me wanna get rid of my other brands and buy more St. Croix's.

Love this rod!
I have this rod paired up with a quantum-cabo spinning reel (size 40) and the pair works great. The rod is super light weight and has a great backbone. Battling fish with this real is fun. You feel the fight of the fish and have the confidence that the rod can take whatever the fish dishes. I liked it so much I got a second. Strongly recommend!

ProsDependable, quality workmanship and feels good after fishing all day.

Quality fishing rod for a great price
I would put these rods against any of the higher end rod manufacturers (Lamiglas, G Loomis). Great action and backbone. Highly recommended.
ProsAffordable Great action
