Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 good rod I just got my 8' rod not to long ago, the first fish I caught was a 34" snook, it worked great as far as landing the fish, had enough give and backbone. The only bad thing I can say is it is not compatible with my Shimmano Stradic 4000 as far as balance goes. I have cheaper rods that feel much better with this reel and are less tireing to use, although they are 7" rods. So you might want the 7' if you use a Stradic. This rod left me tired after using, but for snook fishing you are constantly casting and retreiving, at least when using plugs. May 15, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tidemaster Rods I currently own 6 Tidemasters that are used for Striped bass (7' TIS70MF) and bluefish (TS66MHF). the 7 foot rods are extremely sensitive jigging plastics. I pair with 4000 stradics. The backbone of the rod is solid, with my largest Stiper to date on these at 44 lbs! the MH rods I use for larger fish, and have held up to small schoolie bluefins. July 26, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Rod for Florida Inshore I like these a lot and feel I can trust a primay and a backup, to stand up to big fish. So if you are throwing Pinfish at snook, grouper, jacks, and run into tarpon you are good to go. I like the finishs, feel, strength, and durability. They cast great, and I can be very accurate with them and I am extremely satisfied, compared to others I have used and compared them to either myself or with guides. Good investment you can rely on for the price. July 24, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great ST CROIX A very good rod, light in weight but strong in power. This rod will muscle those stripers to the bank. March 4, 2008

A spinning reel in the 3000 size would work best. 4000 would probably be going a bit too large. Shimano Stradic 3000, Daiwa Coastal 3000, Shimano Saragossa 3000, are examples.

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.

A: 
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.

A spinning reel in the 4000 size would be a good fit. You wouldn't want to go too much larger than a 5000 and could probably get away a 3000 size reel.

A: 
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 use a Penn Conquer 4000 and it works extremely smooth. If you choose you can cast 50,60 feet or more with ease, with a 5:1 retrival rate. I purchased both from "PRO BASS".

A: 
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 !
