Best Surf Rod Under $150

Rate this topic

17 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I am looking for a surf rod between 8 and 9 feet that is good for throwing lighter lures in the 1/2-2.5 oz range. I am primarily looking to spend under $100, but would consider going up to the $150 range. The rod will be paired to a 4000 size penn battle. 

 

Thanks!

Cant go wrong with a Penn Prevail-surf casting, $80-$100 on Tackle Direct, different lengths as well.

They're not as stiff as some more expensive rods, correct. Ive been using a prevail heavily for 3 years, have no problems or issues with sensitivity. (the fish don't seem to have an opinion :cool:)

I fished the 3/4-3 oz model for a bit and it's not a bad rod. I actually prefer it over my Tiralejo for when the gators are around.

Lots of good suggestions, but I'd strongly suggest looking at the BST forum right here.  I've picked up some VERY nice rods for quite reasonable prices

Tsunami Airwaves are worth a look, but the Airwave Elite is above your price range.

Airwaves are great rods for the price, don’t even need to get into the airwaves.
