Great Daiwa Sealine Surf Rods
by Tracy Clark
I bought 2 Daiwa Sealine Rods from Fish USA. I'm thankful that Fish USA had these rods. I had a 10ft Sealine Rod for many years with any incident. These are great rods for the money
I bought an 11' model in May, and after one extended trip, I am ready to get rid of it. It is heavy and awkward beyond belief, making it miserable to cast. The overall "feel" is disappointing, as is the rod quality. I am now in the market for a better rod.
All the elegance of a dump truck!
My new "Sealine surf" rod just arrived, and is a disappointment. I do not own any previous Diawa rods, but have heard good things regarding them. Not this one. The first guide is a size 20, not the size 40 or 30 you would expect for a 11' spinning rod, with only 7 guides on an 11' rod. The ferrule construction is not tip over butt, but just the opposite, butt over tip. And the "graphite composite" means the rod diameter 2" above the handle is a full 24 mm. I am not sure a 20# pike can bend this rod! Lesson learned!
If you know what you want and they have it it’s an easy process.
I’ve been looking for this rod for months. California is all sold out. Easy phone call and conversation. Ordered one, arrived in one week. Packaging was the best and free shipping.
These guys are the best.
Heavy to cast, and hold.
I have the 13' rod that has a beautiful finished, and bought it because it breaks down into 3 sections. This would be a nice rod casting for some big fish unfortunately it's too much rod for the type of surf fishing I do along the WA coast.
I expected it to be like my 10' and 11' Rockaways, or my Diawa FT series 10' fiberglass surf rod in build/weight. Nope this is a real bear to whip and it is best to cast and put in a rod holder. Did I say heavy, heck yes. It is rated for 1-6 oz. I found it difficult to cast, and cast shorter than my 10' and 11' Okumas using 2 and 3 oz. Also to properly balance the rod/reel requires at least a 5000 series reel.
FYI the diameter of my 10/11' Rockaways above the handle is 14mm the 13' Sealine is 28mm.
This rod did not meet my expectations. Make sure this is the rod fits the type of fishing you do. I would like to exchange this rod but UPS quoted over $45 to ship it back in the original container.
