St. Croix Mojo 10'6" Review

Rate this topic

1 post in this topic

Hey guys. So my St Croix 10' 6" came in the mail this morning. I have to say, I am very impressed with I ordered the rod a day ago and it shipped within 24 hours and I had it the next day. I got free shipping and it came with a free St. Croix hat. The rod came in a hard cardboard tube and was fully protected and wrapped up. First thought on the rod was, "damn, this thing is light". The rod weighs nothing out of the box. Paired up with the right reel, you are fishing a great lightweight setup. I ordered this rod because the reviews were awesome and although its a 2 piece, everyone said it feels like a one piece. I through my penn battle 6000 on the rod with 50b spider wire braid and I have to say the rod feels like as if its a one piece. Im going to put a vs200 on it once I buy one. You can feel the lure at the end of the line and its got a sensitive feel when reeling in. I ordered the Medium Moderate action model. For pencil poppers, it is a good rod. I through out a 2oz pencil and a 3.5oz pencil. First of all, all the lures I throughout from 1 1/2 oz to 3 oz skyrocketed. The rod is rated up to 4oz. However I feel that the sweet spot is around 2oz. After 3oz or so, you feel the stress on the rod. Yes it can launch a 4oz lure but i would recommend keeping it at 3oz max for ideal conditions. The thing I like is that its more of a 75/25 split where the rod connects to each other rather than 2 piece rods that are traditionally 50/50. Therefore you feel the action better and its easier to transport. I wish I would have caught something on it during my test casts to test the rod in action but I'm fishing out of the bay area and its the middle of august, theres pretty much no fish back here besides sand sharks and small cocktails. Im going to go down to Riis park, fort Tilden area over the weekend to test the rod some more in the surf and test my sony action camera on my chest to see how the angles look on it. Overall I love the St. Croix mojo and highly recommend it. For a $220 rod, it feels just as good if not better then my older custom lami. I like the long casts, accuracy, smooth pops and the lightness of the stick. Also as for the color. It is a publish color when in sunlight and when in the shade or dark it appears black. Great bang for the buck and when paired with the right reel, its a good setup. If you guys have any questions on the rod, LMK and id love to answer them if I can.
