Looking to purchase a new surf rod/reel set......need advise

2 posts in this topic

hello all,

lookin to add a 9ft set up to surf fishing gear. i currently fish with an 11 sea striker beach runner with 800 penn sargus. for the most part i really like the set up. was looking to get a 9ft rod with 500 or 600 reel for plugs, spoons, etc... Was thinking i should get the same that i have just smaller. any advise on something better suited for my needs. really don't want to spend more than $150-$200 seeing as i live inland and only get the opportunity to surf fish 3-4 times per year. thanks for the help

Love my tsunami rods (I have 4 now). I use an 8ft airwave w/ a 4000 Penn Sargus for tossing spoons to blues, mack, etc. 10ft airwave for big bucks and plugs if the going is going to be tough, also doubles as my light bait rod (with a 5000 penn spinfisher). I got both rods on ebay (also have a trophy w/ a 8000 penn battle for big baits). 10ft was like $100, 8ft was like $70 (i think)- bet 9ft would be about $85 using logic.
