One word "SWEET"   (from prior model)
Pros: Lightweight, strong, Good Tip Action
Cons: None
Best Uses: float and drift fishing
Comments: Bought the SST S 1062ML to replace a more expensive float rod that is worn out after two seasons of steelhead fishing. Tried it out today on my favorite Lake Erie steelhead trib, steelies are gone, but the smallmouth bass gave me a good work out. Rod is very strong, flexible and has good power to easily handle 2-3 pound fish and it should also tame steelies. A real pleasure to use and I would recommend it for stream fishing. And as usual, great service from FishUSA.

Super Sensative Rod   (from prior model)
Pros: Super sensitive, Great Casting
Cons: none so far
Best Uses: Jigging small plastics
Comments: Great rod for the money,This is the Okuma, SST-S-862MH, I paired this with a Diawa BG 3000 and 15lb. Power Pro Braid. I wanted a rod with A lot of diversity, this rod throws lures for 3/8oz. to 1 1/2oz. and then some. I jig A lot, and have been using this rod to throw 1/4oz. jigs /tubes with ease 60-80 Ft. and better. I've only thrown up to 1/2oz. jigs so far and those Sailed across the river. This is a Salmon and Steel Head rod, I'm using it now for Winter Walley fishing on a light bite, super sensitive, I plan on using it for False Albacore fishing in Cape Cod casting Epoxy minnows , Deadly Dicks, etc. up to 1 1/4oz. , I'm sure I'll have No problems landing the Albies , Blue Fish and schoolie size Stripers. I may buy another one !! Stephen Usavich

Broke two tips in as many outings. (from prior model)
Pros: Catches fish, great waranty
Cons: Fragile
Best Uses: A gift to a delicate person.
Comments: 8'6" medium action SST. spinning rod purchased 11/1/2017. I liked the feel in the store. Salesman said they were good rods. Sold me. Bank river fishing on the Olympic Peninsula can get brushy but the first tip broke in the parking lot as I put the lure in the hook holder on the pole. WTF? figured it was a bad blank. Exchanged it for a new one the next day no problem. Okuma return policy is great! Next outing we were bushwacking back from the river. Had the rod tips (was also carrying a shimano bate caster) behind me when the tips got hung on a twig. Gave them a little jerk as is the usual first response. The Shimano did fine but the Okuma tip broke. OK, this could have been more of pole stress than I was aware of, but I have been doing this longer than you are old with lighter tackle. Can't remember ever breaking a tip. I could exchange it again but honestly don't want another one. Maybe this was a bad lot? Caught and released 2 Wild Kings and 2 Coho and the pole was great at that.

A good rod for the money!   (from prior model)
Pros: Light, good action, + smooth guides
Cons: none so far
Best Uses: Larger Trout, Landlocked Salmon, Jigging bucktails, Ripping Rapalas, New York
Comments: A very good rod, overall. I mean - for $65 - it does exactly what I want it to do. I use it to jerk rapalas and cast bucktails for landlocked salmon and browns from shore in the Finger Lakes region in winter. I get good action from each type of presentation, and the rod is light enough for me to cast 1 - 200 times in a day. Perfect length for getting a long cast without it being too long. Guides seem to be a tiny bit cheap, but I full expected that give the make, model, and price tag. I've landed several 5 - 8lbers and am having a lot of fun with it!

Fantastic rod for the price   (from prior model)
Pros: Lightweight, excellent cork handles, Flexible tip, good action
Cons: none so far
Best Uses: perch fishing
Comments: I just received the SST 902M rod and although I have not to fish with it, I was impressed in the quality and the flexibility of the tip. I agree that for the money you won't find a better bargain for under $70 bucks with free shipping from FishUSA. I plan to use this exclusively for surf perch and will be replacing my Shimano FX which is too heavy and too stiff tossing a 1 oz. Carolina rig. My brother just purchased the 10.5 ft version for surf perch. Can't beat FishUSA's prices.

Impressive Rod for the Money!   (from prior model)
Pros: Light, Comfortable handle, well made, excellent cork handles
Best Uses: casting lures from surf or piers
Comments: I just received this rod and I have yet to fish with it, but just looking at it, after years of fishing steelhead with custom rods, factory rods etc. I can tell you, for the money you won't find a better bargain. This is no cheap rod, only the price is cheap. It may not look as good as a custom wrapped rod but you get a great IM-8 blank with excellent guides and outstanding cork and it looks plenty good for under $70 bucks and free ship here from FishUSA... I can't wait to toss lures like KO wobblers or spinners from the pier with it.. This rod of course is also made for float fishing or bottom bouncing in the rivers if you use a spinning reel.. Just a great all around rod for trout and salmon.. The action seems to be medium to med fast... It definitely is not a wet noodle, so it looks and feels to have plenty of backbone. I like it so much I just bought the model 1092ml 10'9", which is equipped with a Michigan handle that I intend to use on the river for float fishing..

Great Bang for the Buck!!   (from prior model)
Pros: Great Action, great price, Sensitive, Good handle, smooth guides
Best Uses: Steelhead drift fishing, float and drift fishing
Comments: I purchased the 10'6" medium action for bottom bouncing in the Ontario Tribs. Its got great sensitivity and has good back bone to be able to put lots of pressure on the big fresh chrome in the larger tribs.

Best rod for the price   (from prior model)
Pros: Great Action, Sensitive blank
Cons: sold out sometimes
Best Uses: Salmon, stripers
Comments: One of my favorite rods for the price. I have a couple different models. These rods have a backbone that is quite insane. But I love these rods for stripers with live bait and a float.

Great Value   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Lightweight, Reasonable price, quality cork grips, Good looking
Cons: A little stiff
Best Uses:
Comments: The five star rating is based on what the rod is. It is not a high end rod. It’s a handsome mid-grade rod at a very great value. This is the best rod I could find for less than twice this price for pier and shoreline steel-head fishing. It is light and sensitive. It has good quality components. It might be a little stiff for some, but I’m very happy with it for my purposes.

Best rod under $100    (from prior model)
Pros: light feel in hand, quality guides, strong
Cons:
Best Uses:
Comments: Bought a 10'6" medium action for Salmon fishing (drifting and float). Feels very light and sensitive yet has a very good backbone once the fight is on. Caught dozens of pink salmons this year with this rod and I never felt under powered. Totally happy with my purchase. If you are looking for a quality rod in the price range of $50 - $100, you can't go wrong with SST rods.

A good long lightweight rod.   (from prior model)
Pros: Reasonable price
Cons: none so far

awesome rods for the price..   (from prior model)
Pros: light feel in hand, quality guides, good reel seats, fast tip action, quality cork grips
Cons: too stiff of a action for me in Michigan
Best Uses: salmon chucking heavy hard ware
Comments: for the price i paid i was expecting a cheap rod. but it was not at all a cheap rod im8 blank. nice reel seat good cork fast tip action blank quality guides. etc...etc... the reason i bough this rod is cause i needed a heavy duty rod for my arsenal for fishing king salmon. i bought the 8 foot model good to 30 pound test line i found it a little to heavy duty for my likes. most of my stick bait i throw for salmon only weight like 1/2 once to 1 once. this rod with it's tip action will handle more then that no problem. if i was looking at them again i would look at the medium action rods in a 10 foot 6 or even a 9 foot rod i al ready own a okuma guide select in a 10' 6" medium light action that was good for this year casting the plugs i could not even feel 3/4 once cleo's on it. all and all it is a great rod for the price and i will most likely get another in a medium action later on. if are laws were not so strict here in Michigan i would throw the proper weight in Michigan rivers need to feel the rod

Great Steelhead Rod.   (from prior model)
Pros: Great Action
Best Uses: Steelhead drift fishing
Comments: The rod has a nice backbone to it for a 9ft noodle rod. Most noodle rods are too flimsy for my liking. I own this rod and a medium action riversider. Both rods are inexpensive and catch as many fish as a 700.00 G-Loomis.

Nice rod   (from prior model)
Pros: Flexible, Lightweight, Sensitive, Good Tip Action
Cons: Poor Construction
Best Uses: River Fishing
Comments: I'm Pleased with this IM8 rod. Fuji seats cork handles, zircon guides.. At this price point the rod is a good value and attractively done. Chrome finish on the guide braces is just ok. The upper section on mine has a wayward bend to it that offsets the rod slightly. I don't think this is the norm for these and Okuma offered to warranty it. The warranty is upgraded to lifetime by the company by the way. They are responsive to inquiry. Outside of the small issue I think this rod will do well. Has enough power to get light baits out there as rated but wont throw much more without some effort. For a light stream trout rod in 7 ft I'm pretty happy with the action and feel overall. Its nicely finished and has a sweet action similar to some domestic rods I own.

Are these the old model or newer model with the carbon wrapped handles? Other sites still have the picture of the cork handle version too, but carry the newer version.

Side drifting is a basic form of float fishing, where your float drifts from the side you cast to the side where you finish the drift (i.e. left to right), and is typical of stream and river fishing as the current moves the float through the drift. Please see the product images for differences between the handles.

Does the SST-S-902M still come with a cork handle? I see someone already asked the question but that was over a year ago.

What is the difference between the steelhead spin model and the float drifting model? I like the longer length on the float drifting model but I am looking for a rod to cast lures for spinning.

The spin models will cast lures better as the spoons and spinners designed for salmon & steelhead are typically heavy and the stiffer rods will accommodate a stronger hook-set. The float drifting models are longer to keep the main line off the water surface allowing for a more natural presentation, and they are lighter in power making them ideal for light presentations targeting large fish.

I want to use the 7’6” medium action rod for trolling crankbaits for walleyes since I prefer to use spinning tackle for that purpose. Would this be a good choice?

That rod will have very good back bone, the sensitivity may not be there. The Okuma dead eye classic you should check that one out very good price and the length is the same.
