Yung, haven't you read anything that's been written here ?

The face wasn't for the size it was for the fact that you're talking about a Walmart rod, the worst kind of crap you can buy and something we've harped about on this site for years.

Save your money, get a Tica, Tsunami, OceanMaster or other decent lower end rod - not that Wallyworld garbage !

Well since I won't have much going on this winter I'll get me a couple of 11+ rods and test them out a bit down by the bay.

Practice-Practice-Practice working on casting form with a long rod will give you more distance. all winter i cast at least once or twice a month at the local airport

This past summer I got an Ocean Master 12’ rod that is set up for heavy surf casting (8 – 12 oz.)
And now I honestly wish I hadn’t. Fact is it is to heavy, and in my opinion just hard to cast (not to mention I put a Penn 525 on it and I just can’t cast the dam thing).

If I could go back, I would have gone with an 12’ or 11’ Tica instead.

I have a spinning set up with a 12’ Beach Runner that I am “reel” happy with
(pun intended)

I have a friend that has a 15’ rod, and that thing is a monster. I would not go there.

I think anything over twelve is overkill.

btw - the last rod I got from wal mart was a 12' Ugly Stick.
I like the Ugly Stick for rods 7' & under.
But this 12' Ugly was the worst 60 bucks I ever spent.
If you are going to buy a rod, be sure to go to a surf/tackle shop.

I think it depends on where you are and what your fishing. For places near me I use a 10' for Montauk 11'.

So I think Im going to get an ocean master 11ft.
I wrapped my hands around a St Croix and immediately fell in love until I saw the price!!!

I then quickly fell out of love......(sour grapes) sob

The Ocean Master will have to do for now. I'll get one for now and maybe next month get a TICA.

If you want a great 11' rod check out the 11' AFAW estuary best all around rod out there IMHO. Factory built for $ 230. $160 for the blank

Best of luck getting your hands on one. I tried to order one and the rod is back ordered indefinitely. Tommy told me he would e-mail me when he hears of another shipment.

Is that for factory built rods or rods and blanks?
