Daiwa Beefstick Surf Spinning Rods
I think it excellent for resistance and weight, very good product for the costs or pier fishing.

Worth every penny
I ordered this rod from Bass Pro Shops some time ago not knowing exactly what I was going to get having not held the rod before. I was very happy with what I got. It is not to bulky or heavy as other surf rods in this price range and it is not so stiff that it can,t load up when casting long distances. I have it paired up with Daiwa DF100A giant spinning reel that I purchased at the same time it cast great. No it is not my Lamiglas but for the price its great. I would not throw a lure with it much due to the size and weight but for bait fishing its great and worth every penny.

For the price - BEST PURCHASE EVER
Recently purchased the 10' rod at Bass Pro in Katy, TX and went fishing in Corpus Christi, TX this past week. I fished at the Bob Hall pier and was casting against heavy wind (30mph) with a 50 lb mono line and 6 oz lure all day. The rod proved to be very durable, handles great and is very well balanced. I had no problems reeling in whatever took the hook. In fact, at one point I got my line stuck and after a few power pulls the line brought back a nice custom wire leader that someone lost while fishing for sharks. I'm completely satisfied with the performance of this rod and will be getting the 11 and 12 foot rods for surf fishing.
