heavy fishing rod
November 24, 2020
A universal rod was needed.
Chose this product. Unfortunately, not all expectations were met.
The rod is more consistent with the medium-heavy class.
But the action is unambiguously fast (only the last fourth part works).
Otherwise, this is a fairly high-quality fishing rod from St. Croix.

Bought the Med 9' travel rod as I live in the city so having a 9 or 10' rod in the apartment would be bad for the marriage. Super light, comes with a nice case. Been using it on the surf at local beaches and she casts great. So easy to break down and pack away. Def recommend if you need a very solid surf rod while traveling.

  • Fit and finish
  • No strap on travel case only grab handle

Bought this for a trip to North Carolina this winter. Great rod with nice travel case. There was even enough room to also fit my 7’ travel rod in the case as well, making it very convenient to travel with my rods.

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.

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.-
  • Versatility use it for light 1 oz Kastmasters and 2 oz plugs
  • Could 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

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.

Very convenient

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.
  • Well built
  • Can 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.
  • It's a St. Croix Rod!
  • Sturdy Travel Case
  • Convenience and peace of mind
  • It'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.

If i need to buy a new case what size should I get for 10' rod?
1 Answer
This case is not sold separately from the travel rod. We would need to know more information on the rod specs and where the split is on the rod if it is a 2 piece rod.

This rod tube is rated for 73-102"

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.
