Which rod?

Rate this topic

For 4 and bait, the Premier all day long. The two-piece 1322s aren't nearly as strong as the one piece--check the difference in butt diameter the next time you're in a shop that carries XSRA rods wink.gif

 

The 1322-2 is a plugging rod that pretty much tops out at 3-1/2 to 4 oz. Great for lures in the 2 to 3-1/2 oz range. 4 oz and bait? I wouldn't do it.

View PostI'm throwing 4nbait. Stuck between St croix Premiere 10'6 2-6oz or Xsra 1322-2? I just love the feel of the lightness of the lami in my hands, but worried about the ratings...

 

I do not like the Premiers in the 10 foot and up models.They are very heavy IMO averaging around 19 oz.They will definitely handle 4 and bait though and considerably more if required.I owned the 2-6oz 10'6 rod and it is a very solid chunking stick but i thought it was overly heavy compared to St.Croixs other 10'6 surf rods, so i traded it in for the Legend surf. St.Croix has a 11 foot 3-8oz Mojo for 2011 $250.00 and a 11 foot Legend surf $460.00 along with a split grip Mojo inshore series that has a average price of around $110.00.

That rod is rated medium heavy power.A 525 mag is a great reel and can be found used for short change,Abu makes excellent conventionals as well. I dont know what the new Penn squalls cost but they look promising.
