Shimano Teramar Southeast Spinning Rods
Power, Sensitivity, & Durability
I have had my 7' MH Teramar for over a year now and it has performed with excellence. I use it for large Stripers in the Colorado River current and it has held up better than many more expensive rods. It has a great feel and great balance due to a well designed handle and reel seat with great balance for bait fishing, trolling or casting large crankbaits. It also has the power when you need it to crank down the drag and muscle in large fish near structure or debris and it has also muscled in some very large grass carp for me. An excellent rod at a very reasonable price with the Shimano Reputation to back it up....

Nice rod for the $$$$
This rod was recommended to me by a friend who works at BPS....The only downfall I have with the rod is having to get acquainted with a new rod and longer than usual size that I am not used to....Other than that the rod is GREAT!! It casts super far and seems to have a great backbone...I am not a huge fan of Shimano products but am glad my friend pointed me in the right direction...With their lifetime warranty made buying this rod easier than what I originally wanted to purchase....
Not my best or favorite rod but definitely in my top 5....!!
Bottom line is this rod is SUPER!
The only disadvantage is that having a 7'6'' rod, it's hard to get it in and out of my house and truck...

Just used this rod on the Jersey Shore for a Bluefish trip. This rod took everything 15# blues had and had plenty strength to spare. My wife hooked into a 100# + Ray using this rod and 30# mono. The rod bent, but did not break as my wife fought the fish to a draw and we cut the line. For the rest of the afternoon, the Teramar Inshore 7ft. heavy/fast action rod enabled both me and my wife to limit out on jumbo blues to 15lbs. I would highly recommend this rod to any inshore fisherman looking for a rod that can more than hold its own.

Hands Down The Best Rod
At first I was reluctant to shed out $110 for a fishing pole but I was looking to upgrade to a better quality tackle. What really sent me over the edge to buy this rod was the lifetime in store warranty. Can't beat that. I have the 7' MH. It has excellent strength and durability. Also the casting distance is phenomenal when paired with the Shimano Sarros 3000.
