One Fine Rod!
I bought the TIS70MF model, and I’m quite pleased with it. It’s sensitive, lightweight but strong, allowing me to feel slight taps by nibbling Whitings, while having enough backbone to haul big Snook. And the quality is top notch, including 8 smooth guides.

I use this rod for striper fishing, surf and on a boat. I have an 8' Med-Heavy single piece. Really good quality rod. Feels well balanced I use a Shimano 8000 bait runner with it. Not a fan of 2piece surf rods that is why I spent the money for this one. Gave it a 4 because of price. There are good quality rods that are single piece and two piece for much less. Shouldn't be so expensive becuase of the name. I do like the rod though.

Nice value in a rod
I have a 7' 6" MLF and 7MF. Have used both rods for flats fishing and they perfom well. The fast action is a little light but it still is a very nice rob for the money. Over all a great rod for the $$$

I use my St. Croix to catch flounder with a frozen shrimp body (defrosted, of course) on a 1/8 oz. chartreuse jig head; hopping slowly along a sandy bottom; with an incoming tide at a pass (but at a non-strong current point) from a ocean/gulf inlet.
For the most part, yes. Most all high end, high quality rods will be constructed with the intention of resisting the elements. However, it doesn't matter whether your rod is $400.00, or $40.00, you still need to practice good maintenance. That means washing down your rod with fresh water every time you come off the water.
Choose a reel that feels good to you. There are so many options that go well with just about any rod. Go with the brands you like the most. For salt water try to stick with a reel of larger size than fresh water. Like a okuma trio s40. Not too small or too large. should be about the right size and wieght for any type of fishing.
I have owned the calcutta and it snapped after a few months of fishing in the gulf...never had a problem with st. croix..its seems to have more grunt to it. This has pulled in a 4 foot black tip with a penn conquer with 20# powerpro, the guides are in perfect condition and the braid has never even maked the guides. this was the best 170$ i ever spent on a rod! i highly reccomend you get it...best wishes and tight lines !
