Rod Is St. Croix Quality - Excellent. Travel Tube Is a Bit Clunky
August 24, 2019
The rod fits together beautifully. Form a seamless unit. Once I fish it, I can comment on the feel, but so far I'm very happy with it. It's light weight, and flexes nicely. I'm sure it will not disappoint.

A drawback is the weight of the tube--It's, well, a brick.

Also, the tube is about 2-3 inches taller than the tallest rod segment. I wouldn't care except that it's already a close call as to whether it will fit in my largest suitcase. Since Mexico doesn't allow rods as carry-on, I might have to check it as a separate piece of luggage, which will cost at least $50 round trip. But let's see if it fits in my suitcase.

All that said, I'm pretty sure I will love the rod in the long run. Bottom line is that in high-end travel surf rods I don't find any better options out there. Will just have to sort out the travel details.

Terrific 9' Rod, Outstanding Service!
June 5, 2019
I bought the St Croix 9' Triumph Surf Travel rod. The rod is terrific. Great length, weight, balance and performance from the beach. Only minor problem was that the case arrived with a broken zipper. I made one phone call to Tackle Direct and St Croix sent a new case directly to me. That is outstanding customer service from both Tackle Direct and St Croix!

Great rods
January 25, 2019
Just back from Zihuatanejo inshore fishing. Used 10 foot travel surf. Traveled in overhead compartments no problem either direction. Casts great 2-3 ounce metal and GT Icream lures. Great for Jacks, tuna and dorado.
Captain mate wants me to bring one for them next time I come. Best rod he had cast. Works great from the beach. All in all 5 stars. You can cover a lot or water with the rod. Matched with shimano Saragossa 6000.

Excellent casting rod with St.Croix durability at a great price. I travel to baja on a regular basis fly fishing but always wanted a surf rod to bring along with. Price point for the quality is exceptional. Highly recommended.
Prosprice casting durability travel ready
Conswish it came in a rod sock like fly rods and other spinning rods.

Took this rod to Puerto Vallarta for surf fishing - ended up going on a boat chasing schools of Toros (jacks) - Used it to cast plugs and krocodile spoons as well as SP minnows- hooked a 30 pound Toro broproblem in no problem.-
ProsVersatility use it for light 1 oz Kastmasters and 2 oz plugs
ConsCould not carry on with Volaris airlines-A little pricey-

Excellent travel surf rod
March 23, 2018
Very well made. Excellent case. Compact. True to the weight range of baits it is rated for, with a sweet spot at about 2 ounces. This is exactly what I was hoping for.

Great Gear
October 26, 2017
I took one of St. Croix's 6'6" - 4 piece travel rods to Belize last year. Landed dozens and dozens of fish - of 11 speices - just casting lures from shore - including tarpon and snook. I was very very satisfied with the product. No other rod company makes anything comparable - let alone at this great price. NO EXCUSES for anyone not to have your gear with you anywhere in the world. Just purchased the 9 foot version to fish the heavy surf on the Pacific side of Central America this winter.

Nice 9' bucktail rod
July 31, 2017
It also does a good job with tossing smaller poppers and stick baits in the surf as well. I use it for both stripers in Monterey Bay, and chasing rooster fish in Baja.
By Rich B.
Very convenient
May 19, 2017
This is a very convenient way to carry a surf pole in your car or truck without taking any room. Quality and performance are standard with StCroix and it shows. Highly recommend this portable surf rod.

Perfect for taking with me when I travel. Fits in a carry on bag without a problem and has plenty of backbone. It's an all around great Rod and I would buy another.

Perfect travel surf rod
June 1, 2016
Haven't stop using this rod, took it on a trip to the Florida keys to do some shore based fishing. Hooked a few tarpon and the rod performed well! Enough backbone to fight the fish and a nice tip to finesse smaller presentations. I'm so pleased with this setup I'm currently fishing for striped bass back in New England with it.
ProsWell built
ConsCan be difficult to take apart even after using ferrule wax
Very Capable Travel Rod
March 30, 2016
This travel rod gives some surf fisherman the convenience and opportunities they need to go at a moment's notice. Rather than leaving long 5-6ft 2 piece rods in your trunk or in the backseat in plain view of passer-by's, you have a very durable and sturdy rod tube and a 4-piece rod from a very reputable manufacturer. It is part of the Triumph line and is a great rod for the money and convenience. I leave it in my car always with a few lures and a reel and I'm ready to go anytime I want. Lunch time during work or quick after work casting or even before work. Just leave it in the car and go, no need to worry about the rod rolling around because it is inside the case. This rod goes with me from Plum Island to the Canal and serves as my backup rod as well.
ProsIt's a St. Croix Rod! Sturdy Travel Case Convenience and peace of mind
ConsIt's not a 4-piece Legend Surf.

I wanted to pair this with a shimano baitrunner 8000. For surfishing in long island NY. For targeting stripers, fluke, and bluefish. I will be using bait and also learning how to use artificials. I will be using braided line also. Do you think the triumph is the way to go? 
1 Answer
The rod is very light, the reel may be a bit to heavy for that rod.

Heading to Cabo San Lucas and looking to pair this with a Daiwa BG5000, Would this be a compatible combo for surf fishing ? Would you suggest the 9 or 10' model?
1 Answer
The 10 foot would give you a bit more range as far as casting distance and how much weight you can cast, the 5000BG would also pair well with it.

September 16, 2016
I'm in need of a travel rod. The two I have noticed are the Okuma Nomad 10'MH and the St. Croix TSRS100M4. I will need it to cast a 3oz weight and a light bait 90% of the time. The other 10% would be light plugs and spoons. Any thoughts on which way to go? Any other suggestions? I only get the chance to surf fish a couple of times a year, at best and that is at Tybee Island...flat and calm.
1 Answer
The Okuma NTS-S-1004MH Nomad Travel Surf Rod - 10 ft. would be a good fit for casting heavier weights with bait a majority of the time.
