The shorter versions make great boat rods - I use the 8’ MH 2pc. rod for heavy vertical jigging and trolling in my kayak and boat for stripers, and it does not disappoint. It’s a bit too slow of an action (not stated by manufacturer, but probably Moderate to MF) for casting and retrieving plugs or swim baits, but that’s not the point of this rod.
ProsGraphite Tough Large Guides
ConsIf you intend to use the 8' version for surf fishing, it won't make a great plug rod - it's best at throwing heavy lead and chunks.

October 22, 2019
Great performing rod. Bought the 7' heavy action spinner, paired to a Penn SSV4500. Awesome light weight combo. Can throw plugs all day without wearing out your arm. Did great work on schoolie to keeper sized stripers. And had enough backbone to put the brakes on a 50lb bass.
ProsGreat rod for the price. No complaints.
ConsCork tape on rear grip wore after a few boat trips in rod holder.

Great rod, well made and great feel. Love the aesthetics and performance. I'd give it 5 stars but I feel like it's a little lighter than what's it's rated for. I have trouble trying to load up and throw 3oz plugs. Wish I could exchange for the 11 foot Heavy. All in all, for the price and quality and performance 5 stars. Great value
ProsQuality Aesthetics Performance Price Value
ConsSeems lighter than what it's rated for
By Ken
great value Surf rod
March 13, 2019
A substantial rod, capable of handling big lures and baits while still providing a sensitive and powerful action to handle those big Stripers.
Compares very favourably with significantly more expensive rods.
ProsPrice. Good quality finish. Powerful action.

Great rod for the price
March 4, 2019
While I have not had a chance to fish with this rod yet I am impressed with the build quality. I like to keep one heavy action surf rod around for those times when you need throw 8-10 ounces past a sand bar. From what I have seen so far this rod should work perfectly. After matching it with my trusty old Penn 750SSM I tested it by tying a 5lb kettle ball to the line and lifting it off the ground and bouncing. If the rod is going to fail I won't it to fail at home, and not when I have a big Bull Red on the hook. It handled the kettle ball with no issues, I was impressed.
ProsGreat price for a quality rod.

For the surf

Nice light rod. Plan to match with Penn SLAIII6500 for bait fishing or Penn SSV6500BLS for plugging the Atlantic. Just waiting for April 15th (opening day for stripers in NY) to put it to work.
ProsLight weight. 50/50 split makes it easy to transport in a Camaro.

Beast of a surf rod.
ProsTip is still sensitive enough to see small critters hitting at your bait.
ConsGimbal little wider than my other rods. Had to go up a size on pvc surf rod holder. Not really a con but just do fit test before heading out.

Good Looking Rod

better than i expected
December 13, 2018
I originally got this just for a rod to mess around with for cocktail blues or tiny bass under a bridge when they were migrating. after a couple uses, I realized this is waaay too stiff for my liking. so instead i ended up using it as a fluke + flounder rod off the jetties. even if stated as a heavy rod, should still allow some bend. feel like i'll snap the rod before i let the rod dip 20 degrees.
Prossturdy, great hook sets and sensitive
Consrigid, barely any bend before you can cause damage to the rod.

Extra heavy but light weight
December 2, 2018
12’ length is great for casting and with the extra heavy action lets you use plenty of lead and bait.

from Hudson River NYC asked:
April 13, 2019

I was wondering the split on the 11 foot & the 12 foot models? also I'm looking at throwing 4 to 6 oz plus a chunk of bait paired with a 6500 or 12000 baitrunner with 30 to 50lb braid. 

Fishing the lower Hudson river for Stripers.... any thoughts would be helpful.

1 Answer
 They are both 50/50 splits, if you are throwing heavy cut bait then the 12 foot paired with a 10000 baitrunner would be a good setup for the Hudson

Would the 11ft extra heavy spinning rod be good for 5-7 foot sandbar sharks from the surf? Would it pair well with a 12000 size shimano baitrunner D? By the way I would be using 65lb braid and throwing a 6oz pyramid sinker with cut bait. Thanks.
1 Answer
Hi Sir! Thanks for the question! The 11' Extra Heavy Tsunami Trophy Surf Spinning Rod would be good for the size sharks you are fishing for. However, the 12000 Shimano Baitrunner D might be too big for the rod. I would recommend using the 8000 Shimano Baitrunner D size.

Hi I need 15 ft rod with cw 100-250 grams for salt water but I could not find in this page please send me your recommendation.
1 Answer
Because of the length and shipping restrictions we normally don't carry many rods 15' that will throw that kind of weight. They're often custom made, but we do have these.

Is the 11ft extra heavy spinning rod a good rod for shark fishing?
1 Answer
That particular model would be a good fit for smaller to mid-size shark fishing applications. You will want to use a shorter and much heavier rod if you are targeting sharks in the 100+ pound range.
