Great Surf Rod
May 26, 2019
This rod is amazingly light and casts great due to the solid backbone. Tip is responsive so you can detect when you have fish on in a multi-rod spread. Some have expressed concern about the single foot guides but after using the rod on several outings I have had no problems with the Fuji guides and I will do a follow up in a year to report on how they hold up. The guides do a great job of eliminating wind knots, I have yet to get my first one. Even though this rod is only 11 foot long it casts farther than my 12 foot models of another brand. I was impressed with how quickly Tackle Direct got the rod to me in Florida. I ordered it at 11:00 PM on a Thursday night and I had it the next Monday. The rod came to me in a "bomb" proof cardboard tube and it was wrapped inside on the tip and butt in bubble wrap. I think you could have driven a car over it and not damaged the rod. Great product and buying experience.
ProsQuality Rod Very light Casts Great

Awesome Rod

Super lightweight and very strong. I casts very far. I paired my rod up with the Shimano Spherose SW6000. A very good combination. I also did some custom alterations to the handle and butt. Checkout the before and after pictures.
ProsPerfect rod
ConsI did not like the exposed blink on the handle and the stock butt was just hard plastic

Super light and strong. There is nothing this 9 ' rod couldnt handle. Does get a little heavy after the 20th cast but worth every penny for this size rod.

I have 3 Star Stellar Light rods. I liked them so much bought this in 8' 1 piece. It is my absolute favorite rod. You can feel everything and it is very light and well made. I cannot say anything bad about it. I've been using a saragosa 6000 with it. Works great but not the ideal reel for it as the saragosa makes it wobble. I'm looking for something else that compliments the light weight, maybe a certate LT or a Stradic FL. Anyway, don't hesitate to buy. Plus it comes with a free reel right now!!

Amazing rod! I can’t say how much I love the VPRs. This is perfect for everything from throwing Flairhawks for big bulls and Snook down to smaller jerkbaits in the surf searching for blues and jacks.
