  1. I have this same rod (one of my favorites) and my buddy snapped about 2 1/2 inches off the top about 5 years ago. I still don't know what to do with it, other than see it in the garage every now and then and get depressed.
  2. Doesn't happen on my BG, it casts like a dream on my 7' Tsunami.
  3. They’re pretty damn good, regardless of whether or not you have to find your own tube.
  4. Mojos are very good rods. There were some problems a ways back with both blanks and reel seats, but I'm sure it's been corrected. I have a 10'6" 3/4-4oz going on 4 years now and it's been nothing but great for plugging in that weight range. St. Croix has one of, if not the best, warranty/repair policies in the business. So rest assured, if you do encounter a problem, they will take care of you. I'm looking at maybe adding the 8' myself...even though I don't really need it, lol.
  5. IIRC, Scooby has the ability to post links to Amazon goods...I'm sure he'll explain it.
  6. St. Croix Avid Surf 10' with a Shimano Spheros SW 6000. Nice, light, and bright. I can fish this setup all day without tiring, yet still horse any big 'uns in if need be.
  7. The Baitrunner is a GREAT reel...don't beat yourself up about it. That being said, there's absolutely nothing wrong with having more than one reel for different jobs...it just can be expensive, lol. As much as I love my primary reels (Shimano Spheros and Daiwa BG), I would never give up my 6000D for soaking bait.
  8. Make sure your tetanus vaccine is up to date!
  9. I fished with a Carnage 9' medium for an afternoon and I thought it was great. It was paired with a BG 4000 and I really enjoyed the setup. Light and maneuverable...but it felt like it had some backbone to it. It was a fun rod to take up and down the beach.
  10. Lol, that could very well be it. Keep honing your technique and have a great 4th of July!
  11. Hoping everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July!
  12. What was changed in your setup that made the difference today?
  13. How do you know they can do better if you’re not fishing their equipment? And as far as reels and rods needing to get back on the heavier side....no, they DO NOT.
  14. I have the candy apple red Avid surf 10'...and there's nothing downhill about it. It's been my go to rod for a couple of years and it's clearly my favorite, especially for bucktails with it's faster tip. Also, the 8' model is spoken of pretty highly around here...apparently a small metal rocket launcher.
  15. I like 10' or even 10'6 for out front. I've fished a 9' but just prefer one of the other two for the bulk of what I do.
