Offshore Angler™ Ocean Master® Stand-Up Rods - OMSU Model
I'm stationed on Ascension Island in the south atlantic and the fishing here is fantastic.
I purchased the 5'6" 80 pound line class and it is by far one of the best values along with the quality you will find. We are consitantly landing 300 lb. tuna and 70 lb. wahoo, many of my friends here are using the same rod and we always recommend this rod to anyone who asks. I also own Penn and Kona stand up rods that quadruple the price of this rod but for this price the quality is unbelievable.

Offshore Angler™ Ocean Master® Stand-Up Rods
Best rods I have. Made well, quality workmanship stands out. I love the triangular forehand handle. I need 4 more. I only have 8.

Tough as nails!
I have the 5'6" 50-80 pound rod, it is paired with a Penn squall size 60 reel with 80 pound braid line. It it great for trolling, but I use it every chance I get even going to the pier. I have the graphite reel seat, so it is not heavy at all, can even cast good with about 6oz or more weight. Have caught stripers and several black tip sharks with it, biggest fish so far only about 41 pounds so it really has not been put to any good testing yet. If you want to buy a good stand-up rod that is tough and cheap you can't go wrong with it.

I have 4 of the 5'-6" 30-80 line class rods with Shimano Tyrnos 30 reels. These rods are well built with Aftco alum reel seats and rollers. The triangular foregrip is very comfortable when working a heavy fish. rod blanks are solid and offer tremendous lifting power for this class of rod. Great for trolling with the roller tips.
