Great rod, plenty of backbone for big bull reds yet sensitive enough for specks. There's a reason they call them "The Best Rods On Earth"!

Recieved my rod along with a new reel. Took it out fishing made no more than 10 cast total and snapped the tip of the rod off about a foot from the end. Im guessing I got a defective rod or something because it was brand new. Other than that it casted fine and i enjoyed it while it lasted.

Best bang for the buck. Can be used for freshwater or saltwater and has upgraded eyelets for saltwater without and increase in price over St. Croix freshwater spinning rods.
Beautifully built rod with outdstanding performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JDNCSTATE Very Nice Rod
As I had hoped, the St. Croix Tidemaster has so far lived up to its expectations. The medium action 7 footer is very sensitive and casts superior distances. I am looking forward to the fall inshore bite on the Carolina coast.

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 !
Tidemaster rods have SCII graphite blanks which St. Croix ranks as mid-modulus. This material produces rods that are highly sensitive, lightweight and durable. Tidemasters are outfitted with Baston Forecast hard aluminum guides with 316 stainless steel frames, Fuji DPS reel seat and premium-grade cork handle.
