Shimano Teramar Southeast Casting Rods
Best buy for the money
I bought the 7'4 med for my shimano symetre. I fish alot for trout in the ocean. This rod is fantastic. I am getting ready to purchase a 7'6 h for my ambassador reel. You can not beat this rod for the cost and overall performance.

Light and strong
I purchased the TMC76H last year for a new baitcast reel, Calcutta 401. This is the 1st baitcaster I ever used. I was impressed with the light weight and durability of this rod. I can cast plugs and spoons all day and I feel as though I'm using my fresh water bassoutfit. It does not cast as far as my 9.5 St.Croix but it is not more than 10 yds difference.It is easyer to use on piers and jetties and handles large stripers and blues effortlessly. This rod and reel setup is ideal for my needs.In a couple of weeks I'll be on board my new kayak. This size should be perfect for working large fish around the bow and stern. Hope I have the proper terms new to boating ha ha ha. If you see a bright yellow Hobie mirage out there come over and introduce yourself. Tight lines!

Great saltwater rod
I bought the 7'0" medium heavy rod with extra fast action and paired it with a Abu Garcia 6500 c3 with #50 braid line. It makes for a great combo for larger inshore fish--reds, tarpon, snook, etc. The rod has a lot of backbone but is still wonderfully suited for smaller species. It also has high quality cork grips and nice line guides. The balance is good though I feel it could use a little more weight in the butt end with the combo I have, I'll probably experiment with that. Overall pretty happy with my purchase.

Shimano Termar 7'6 Casting Hvy
I bought 2 of the 7'6 hvy casting Termar rods for shiner fishing. The price and lifetime over the counter warranty is hard to beat. Overall the rods are pretty solid for fishing open water but are a little on the light side for fishing grass and pads. I believe they will work great for circle hooks though. One thing that caught my eye was one of the rods is noticeably stiffer than the other.
