Great Rod - Super Value
June 22, 2020
So, bought 2 of them to go live lining for Kingfish in south FL, they didn't disappoint! We paired them up with Shimano baitrunners using 50 lb braid with a 30lb floro topshop and caught 4 in the 25 lb range.....the rods handled them like a champ! Plenty of bend when needed yet stout enough to bring them to the boat with confidence. So happy we bought 2 more!!

Great Affordable Saltwater Rod
July 25, 2021
Own two of these rods I use on Chesapeake Bay for live bait cobia fishing and occasional trolling. Feel very sturdy and well built under the pressure of large fish. Also stiff enough to troll a #1 and probably #2 in line planer. A little too stout to be used as a go to casting rod and would need to be throwing something over 2 ounces. Just ordered a jigging rod from TD becasue I like the way these feel so much

All purpose rod
May 8, 2021
Bought for my mom (who loves to fish!) as an all purpose rod. In my couple days with it, I think it's a little heavy as far as actual weight is concerned, but that it will hold up to the use and abuse that Jersey has to offer, from fluke to small tuna.
By Richard
WOW!! A Great Rod at a Great Price!!
November 16, 2020
This is one beautiful rod!
ProsHybrid mix of fiberglass & graphite should make this indestructible! Real nice Fuji new Concept guides! Great looking guide wraps & nice accents overall make this a very attractive rod especially for the price. I bought this to replace a Penn Battalion rod that snapped in half under minimal pressure and doubt if this would do the same!!

I have twelve old Ugly Stix. The new ones...not so impressed. Bought this. Ripped in 50 lb blacktops...great rod for the money, maybe the best.
ProsQuality components, great grip, perfect spine angle, Inice action,
ConsNot a featherweight, but way light enough for me, and I'll take toughness over a couple oz anyday .

Awesome Boat rod.
November 25, 2018
I used this boat rod on my trip to deep sea fishing and all I can say is perfect. It is sensitive enough to feel every bite of the fish to your line & good enough to cast your lure or bait far.

I bought one of these rods 2 years ago, it's holding up very well. Freshwater wash after every use keeps it looking new and the guides handle that 30# braid without issues. I'm so pleased I went and bought 2 more rods this summer, a great rod and a great value. Thank you Tackle Direct

July 22, 2017
You are getting a great rod for under $100. It cast well with plenty of backbone and the new fuji O guides. Wish it had a fuji reel seat and a little lighter. it is a little heavier then some of my other rods but for the cost you can't beat it.
ProsPlenty of backbone, fuji O guides
ConsA little heavy.

Great rod for the price
June 2, 2017
I am very impressed with this rod for the price. I paired it with Diawa BG 5000 and it works great for livebaiting for Kingfish or pitching to Dolphin. The rod is not the prettiest thing but for a great price it gets the job done.

All you need!

I put my Quantum Cabo 60 on this rod and there wasn't anything that I could not catch within 12 miles of shore. I chummed and bait fished the shallow reefs, live baited on the drift and even trolled some mid-depth plugs at 15 to 20 feet with this rod. The rod is awesome and you can feel the power, but also the sensitivity and you can see the quality in it. It can't be beat for the price. I am going to be ordering another one.
Prospower, quality components, high grade finish
Consyou can't buy two for one even at Happy Hour

Would this rod be a good match for a Penn Spinfisher VI 8500?  Wanting a good all-round offshore combo.  
1 Answer
This rod would be too small for a reel that size. Take a look at the Tsunami TSCSHDBSII701H-B Carbon Shield II Boat Spinning Rod. This rod would balance better with that reel and the specs would be better suited for the type of fishing you plan on doing.
