Looking at these 2 rods...

 

Untitled.jpg

 

For fishing off jetties oversized snook and reds ,smaller tarpon , big #14 rapalas and

and 1.5oz jigs. I like the lure rating on the 810 but I'll be using line 30# braid..

Need the extra backbone for getting the hook through those big reds and smaller tarpon.

What do y'all think , guess I could call Crowder in the morning and see what they think.

Both will work off the jetties....remember jetties will take a toll on your gear

(rod/reels)

I use a Tica 9ft M/H fast action...matched to a Daiwa EMP5500 Emblem Pro, and loaded with 300yds of 50lb jerry brown braid...

This setup has enough backbone and distance for almost anything that swims our jetties...

I only use it for lures...and the i perfer the 9ft because i can clear the rocks

pretty easy if i need too...

I have 30lb braid get snap off too much, because they were able to keep swimming around the point or dive

around some rocks, but with the 50lb i am able to turn them alot faster...

plus groupers like to come up at times and mess with our lures...

Oh i can cast this setup all day and not get worn out....and if i fall and snap

the rod...hell for $70(fleabay) or less i can pick up another one..

I didn't see but a few Tica rods on ebay , where else can you buy them

sorry but our town sucks for tackle thumbd.gif

I'm trying to get some kinda visual , because I can order Crowder from

Rivers Marine.

Is that a surf rod you have ?

I know its not an 8' but I have beaten the snot out of my 7 foot e series. Great stick with tons of power. Tip guide broke but no biggie crowder doesn't make the guides. I have used it on brideges and boats and have landed some modest sized 30lb fish with it. As well as swung a couple 10lb blues.

Basically I'm just wondering which one of those is the heavier action rod.

Which one has more power ?Thats all.

 

I have a Star 6'6 5/8 - 2 and it just to light for 1.5oz jig...

I believe only stores like ganders/bass pro shops and other that sell sporting

goods are the only place you will see a Tica..

But they run alot higher in those places...i just saw a brand new buy it now

on fleabay...for less than $90

and there was one right now that has three hrs left..and its at $60 right now

You can find them on online store or fleabay....there are a few threads on tica...just do a search...

Good light/strong rod for the money and the thing casts a mile...

Look for a thread that call the "El Cheapo rods" ....

you willl get more infor off that thread about these rods...and others..
