Great rod for the money.
June 3, 2018
I have paired a MH 7.5 and a MH 7 foot with Tranx 400 reels, and they are about perfect for trolling and casting for king mackerel from my kayak. Once I can buy a couple more of these setups, I intend to leave my heavier tackle at home unless I plan to bottom fish next to the oil rigs.
ProsTough, good price, fairly light weight.

Great rod for the money
May 26, 2017
This is my second TMS MH rod. It is a great rod for the money. My 4 year old rod is 7'6" I bought it for slip cork fishing and throwing top water lures. I am hoping the shorter rod will be my new favorite for working a Cajun Thunder, twitch baits and heavy jigs in deep water. I haven't used it enough to decide on the shorter length.

Both rods are matching with Shimano Ci4 using 20# braid. They can stop almost anything I catch in the Intracoastal waterway here in NE FL/Jacksonville. I have caught redfish up to 38" in a foot of water.

A medium heavy action combined with a fast action tip is gentle enough to toss live bait a mile and not tear it up. It will also sling a top water plug or Bomber Long A with tremendous accuracy. Flats fishing is about hitting the target. These rods are great.

I also carry two T Allen high carbon micro guide 7'8" medium action with extra fast tips. They are the most sensitive rods I have ever seen. I use them for 1/8 jigs and lately an Unfair Advantage shrimp.

Both rods are also paired with Shimano Ci4 2500 and 10# braid. The rod is more than double the cost of my Teramar. They will cast a tiny weight across town! I use them the most. If a fish taps your lure it's like getting slapped in the hand amazing sensitivity.

The last rod on my boat is a Star Rod - Plasma 7' heavy action with 20# braid. It is rated for baits up to 2oz but can handle double that if bottom fishing.

I use it for soaking blue crab pieces for redfish, big live mullet and trolling. The rod is a beast and doesn't cast very well it's too stiff and too short. It works very well in specific circumstances.

All my rods are one piece. I am old enough to need hi-viz line. I get out two or three times a week.

Fish don't fear me....

ProsGreat price very durable.
ConsMy 4 year old rod is showing some rust on eyes. I fish only saltwater. They are rinsed off 95% of the time.

Perfect for Blackfish/Tog
May 25, 2021
Absolutely perfect spinning rod to use when jigging for for blackfish in the northeast. Also use this rod when fishing backcountry reds and snook when i go to Florida. Makes great lite tackle boat rod for using eels when fishing directly over bass .
ProsHighly versatile... outstanding price point
ConsI wish it was about 4? to 6? longer

Nice Rod!
March 7, 2021
Very nice rod for the $, comparable to some others I have costing twice as much. Paired the TMS-70MH with a Shimano Baitrunner 4000d and 20lb braid. Works great for nearshore live baiting and even for pitching to schoolie dolphin.

I have never been a big Shimano Guy! I couldn't convince my self to buy anything else but St. Croix (I still love them) but for the price you can not go wrong with this rod. I use it for beach snook red fish, sheepsheads, mangrove snapper, on most of my inshore game fish, this is the rod I choose!

Great inexpensive rod
February 12, 2020
I ended up getting a second one of these for the boat. These are great rods with good components. They are also light and sensitive. I have either a 4k stradic on this and the other one I have, 7' med. The combination makes for a feather weight setup that I can cast all day with either.

Would you recommend this rod for stradic 5000
1 Answer
The Shimano Stradic 5000 would be a good match for this rod, but you may be better off with a Saragosa 5000 or 6000 in terms of balance. Certainly depends on what you will be fishing for as well. If you need any specific help, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
