Nice Rod!

by C-biscuit -

Beautiful travel rod for inshore casting. Nice action to really sling a lure. Felt great on smaller fish I caught, only up to about 5 lbs. Nothing bigger to compare, unfortunately!

What you would expect from St. Croix

by Captain Patrick -

I use these rods for my charter service and would definitely recommend. My goal is to provide light tackle experience but with enough backbone to reel in a big one. The guide inserts have broken a couple times but probably due to usage not manufacturing.

Tidemaster Rod

by GG

To the person who gave the Tidemaster rods a bad review because they broke while fighting peacock bass: That little knob on the front of your reel, it's called a drag knob -- TRY USING IT!!! These are the best rods I've ever owned. And I own 4 of them.

I will buy this product again!!

I have been looking for an 8 foot, 1 piece rod for the longest time. This rod is perfect and I purchased an addditional rod as a gift as well.

St. Croix Tidemaster Inshore Spinning Rod

by AKVA Fisher -

This is truly a great rod. I spend the majority of my time fishing inshore off a 23 ft. center console. I'm typically chasing down stripers and bluefish. The great thing about this rod is it can handle big stripers, up to 40 lbs, but you can still have fun with the smaller guys.

St. Croix ( NOT FOR ME )

by Fishmore

I bought 2 of the 3 piece rods for a trip to Brazil for peacock bass fishing. They did not fair too well with one breaking at the first joint and the second rod was about to do the same.[...] I think I will stick with Shimanoand G loomas. They have better warrenty coverage in items of this price range. FISHMORE [@]

Excellent All the way!

by SAWLTGEAR Rodbuilder

As a rodbuilder and avid fisherman here in coastal southeast Ga. I have built and seen them all. The SCII inshore blank AKA Tidemaster,is by far the best bang for your buck. I personally fish this rod,and have for many years.That is saying a lot about this blank seeing that I have access to them all, and have settled on this one for my personal use.I have built many of these rods for folks that often return for another length or action. The 7' Med/Fast wth the #5 handle is an absolute perfect rod for anything inshore, or even heavier fresh water use. Yuo will not be disappointed with a St.Croix Tidemaster

Medium? Moderate? No. Ultralight!

by David

The "medium power, moderate action" 1,-pc. Tidemaster was a huge disappointment. Nothing "medium" about it! Feels like a noodle rod or a buggy whip. Useless for my fishing - sent it back.
