The 7’6†MH is a versatile inshore rod that allows me to toss a variety of plugs and soft plastics in almost any situation. I have it paired with a 5000 size Daiwa reel.

VIS80F, this is a heavy duty spinning rod but light. I have it mated with a Shimano sustain 10,000. Sure enough, it’s able to reel in 60lb blue fin. It’s perfect for 20-40lb species. As it is a stiff rod, retrieving lures is not so great, but more ideal to live bait.

Extremely light. The VIS76MF pairs nicely with the stradic 2500 Ci4. Such a light combo that it floats. Very sensitive. Works great for trout and reds.

I have 2 of these rods and I use them for Blackfish, Seabass, Fluke and Striped Bass. Great back bone and super sensitive! I paired them up with the Van Staal VR50 to make perfect inshore combo for NJ fishing.

75% of my rods are St. Croix rods. I've always been a fan of their Tidemaster Series, but the new Avid Inshore Series tops them.

I now own several of them, and they perform flawlessly.

They're also about the prettiest rod that you'll ever run across.

My new favorite!!
July 21, 2018
I paired the 7†MH with the shimano tranx 300A which balanced out nicely! First day using it I hooked into 2 good sized halibut & man this rod was fun to use, tons of bend & strong backbone to handle big fish with confidence! I’m buying another combo just like it - it’s that good!!
