About Me:
Casual/Recreational
Being a drift boat owner, I needed a rod at a reasonable price for taking river volunteer workers out to backtroll for Spring and Fall Salmon. I selected the SST C 902MH, and I have been quite pleased. This 9' Medium Heavy Rod has good sensitivity at the tip which allows the angler to monitor the proper "tickle" of the plug. The medium/heavy design provides plenty of backbone for setting the hook and fighting the fish. The 9' length is also long enough to be maneuverable all around the boat when fighting a fast-moving and uncooperative fish, yet it is not too long for easy netting. While fishing the river this year, we landed several Salmon with this rod, including a very nice 35-pound Spring King Salmon. This rod performed perfectly each time, and I now use it exclusively for backtrolling and bottom-bouncing river Salmon.
Pros: Good Sensitivity, Good Backbone, Comfortable Length, Reasonable Price

First purchase from FishUSA.com. Excellent Service, very professional. This is exactly the rod I've been searching for. The lightest medium action rod available of any manufacturer. Lure weight 1-5 oz and the lowest line weight. I paired it up with a S-40 Trio. I am now able to cast a 3 oz. pyramid up to 70 yds. Which is more than ideal for the surf fishing I do for steelhead. The rod is well built, the tip will actually whip the rig out, whereas my lighter weight rods up to 1 1/2 oz lure weight have to be lobbed with a 2 oz weight for fear of over stressing the tip. Very strong backbone on this rod, so I loose a bit of feeling when hauling in an average fish of 4-8 lbs in my area. The eyelets are small, but i can live with that. I do a lot of sub temp fishing and they freeze up and need to be cleaned. Overall, for the price it is very good.
