Daiwa Sealine Surf Spinning Rod
I bought this rod last year and fished stripers and blues all over cape cod with it. I have a penn battle 6000 on it, and it was a sturdy setup. your not going to throw anything across the cape cod canal with it , but for the money its a good stick.I used it at least 5 nights a week and caught countless good fish. if you dont want to spend the big bucks itll get you by. your not going to be able to throw under two ounces and feel good about yourself is the reason i gave it three stars. too beefy.

For the price you won't find better
This is a great rod for the price, sure you give up some casting distance and sensitivity over the break away or st. croix rods, but this rod is still an excellent choice on a budget or for those of us that don't fish every day. I have been nothing but pleased and impressed. I paird the 10' sealine with a dawai giant spinning reel (purchased both from basspro) and had a great surf fishing setup for less than $100. you can't beat that price and the performance was good. One tip though, if you need to cast for distance don't go over 14-17 lb test on the reel.

For the cost of this rod I expected much less. Not a large butt section like some rods that make handling them difficult. Not as small as the cork handles but still a comfortable grip. VERY sensitive tip ! Small flounder, croaker, blues and other surf fishes were easy to feel with this great tip section. Casts great and is extremely light for a rod of this size. Great backbone to handle larger fish. Paired two of these with Okuma Avenger 50's. I have paid three times what I paid for the for other rods and they have not had the qualities of these. This is definitely a winner at this price point.
