I run a couple 7ft Star Aerial's as my kayak rods, so when it came to getting a surf rod Star was at the top of my list. I was a little leery on the grip as it looked to be smaller in diameter than my other rods. Absolutely Love it! The grip is awesome. Currently paired with a Penn Battle III 8000.

I've owned one of these rods for at least the past 6 season. I've caught hundreds if not thousands of fish on it to 30+#s. Stars customer service is excellent and they stand by their warranty and their product which is important to me. I have thrown plugs close to 4 oz with it and had no problems
ProsGreat price Warranty and customer service excellent

Been a fan of star rods for years I have this one for beach surf and its action is strong casting when you have to cast 8 oz put the hook on the bottom

Star Ariel rod
June 26, 2015
Got this rod with as a gift for father's day from my wife and kids along with a previously review Penn battle 2 5000 reel. The rod is very well made. I chose this rod based on my experience with my star Ariel 11 foot surf rod. This rod loads smoothly and casts very well. Have not thrown anything heavy than 2 ounces with it so far but I feel that it can handle it's rated range. Only gave it a 4 star rating due to the fact I haven't thrown heavier lures with it and only caught a 20 striped Bass with it.
ProsLite and well balanced
ConsNone so far.

Very good rod if you are just starting out, or need a backup. I got one for myself, and one for my nephew, both paired with Penn Battle reels and the are great, only complaint is they are heavier than you would expect for nine foot sticks.
