Looking for a new surf rod. Broke my 8 footer last year. I am looking at the Tica dolphin,the Diawa Emblem and the St Croix Triumph. Any help or experience with these rods would be helpful. I will probably put a Shimano Baitrunner or Penn Slammer on it.
I bought the St Croix at Susquhanna B&T. I really liked the way it felt. I can say this though. Before long I will have the Tica in a 9 footer. What a quality piece. Thanks to Mike at SBT for all your help.
SS43, i may be getting out of the surf fishing hobby for a few years and mine will likely just sit in the corner of the hunting room as it only got used a week a year as it is...if you ever want to give it a try let me know.
Unfortunately it looks like we are a pretty good distance apart. I would sell it to you reasonable, but I hate to close the chapter on surf fishing that completely.
RB, don't get rid of your stuff! There's always gonna be a beach vacation that you'll need something to fish with. I'd rather have the stuff collecting dust,than not have it when I could use it. I mean YOU use it,not ME.
