St. Croix Tide Master

Tidemasters are no longer made, they never made a two piece, they made three piece travel rods which were very good some might still be around at tackle shops. St Croix was supposed to be making Avid freshwater travel rods you might look into those. I think 7.5 2 pc might be be tough to find. I see St Croix Premier in that size but only in fresh water M and ML power.

There are plenty of 8 ft 2 piece rods  around.

Since I travel a lot I’m always looking for nice 2 piece spinning and casting rods. The pickings are slim. St. Croix Premier or Triumph. Bass Pro/Cabelas have many in their house brands. The easiest thing (with most options) would be to move up to 8.5 ft. Salmon/Steelhead rods which there are numerous 2 piece cork handle etc.

Star Stellar lite  7’6” 2 piece. A great little stick.

This is true. 

 

Or if you'll go to 8' try the Tica rated to 2oz.

True. The 8 foot Triumph rated to 2 is another great rod.

Stellar light is good.  Take a look at Shimano teramar sotheast.  A very nice rod for the $$$.

I cannot find the Stellar Light in 2 piece. Also I LOVE my Shimano Teramar Southeast but I never have seen one in 2 piece...

The two piece is not lite, it is medium. Search for SG1020S76

That is a surf rod and the lure weight rating seems to be 1-1 1/2oz.

 

I'm wanting something that will be good for 1/8oz swimbaits up to maybe 1/2oz. Seems 7' might be as big as I can go.

1/8oz to 1/2oz is a pretty broad range.

 

Look up the Shimano Dialuna.

 

You have to purchase it from Japan, but depending on the seller you will have the rod on your door step in 3 to 4 days.

If you want something that light look at StCroix Premium they have two 7.5 ft 2 piece   That might be what you’re looking for. These are freshwater rods but they should be OK in the salt. I I have one for at least 10 yrs and the guides look brand new with just moderate care.
