I picked this rod up for lighter tackle shore fishing and i really enjoy it. I can still get pretty good distance if i'm throwing 1/2 oz jigs but the sweet spot really is that 1 1/2 oz to 2 oz range. Landed a 30 lb striper with it on my first outing with it throwing a weightless sluggo. Flicks it out there no problem. I do wish the butt section was a tiny bit thinner like the emblem but that's just me being picky. Good stick.
Do not buy

Purchased this Rod last year. Its been holding up great. So far no issues and love it. I mainly use it from the Jetty and from the surf in SoCal.

Broke it twice this year!
November 21, 2018
Unfortunately, I have had issues with the 10'6 1-4 oz rated rod. First time breaking it the top piece broke between the first and second guide while fighting a decent sized Jack Crevalle. I sent the rod back to Daiwa through warranty and received a new one 2 weeks later... same model. After 2 months it finally broke again when pulling up a 5 lb bluefish from the jetty. A couple well known youtubers have reviewed this rod and received multiple reports of the medium 1-4 oz models breaking. It was suggested that there is a manufacturing defect with these particular models. I have heard great things about the 11 foot MH but haven't tested it.
ProsVery light weight, casts far, good sensitivity, smooth guides
ConsBroke twice, weak rod specifically 10'6 1-4 oz, tip of the butt does not grip well with surfaces and slides easily

Best Surf spinning rod!

This rod is light and whippy, great for throwing plugs even at the lightest end of it's range. I had read some reviews that the rod was breaking on heavier plugs, so fishing a jetty during the mullet run here in Florida I was tentative at first to use it for live bait. As it was the only rod I had with me I got more and more confident, using it to heave even 15" mullet into the current. This rod is strong! Great purchase.

My first 10ft surf rod

I fell in love with this rod on my first visit to tackle direct but ordered it online a little while after my visit. Great quality and finish at an affordable price. I havent got a chance to use it yet but I know it will work perfect. Sp minnows are like my faves so I figured why not give the rod a shot. I am very happy with my purchase!!!

i'm a big st croix fan with my legend and mojo used for specific application. but this daiwa salt pro is just as good if not better than the mojo. check out the price !!!

Good quality rod. Packs plenty of fighting power. Caught a 39" red on its first time on the surf. Had no trouble handing it.
ProsLightweight Sensitivity Value
ConsOnly cons are the butt cap coming loose and the casting weight range being over-rated, I could not imagine casting more than 8 ounces with it, which is fine for the use I make of it.
Great Rod for the price

Will have to say I bought this rod to use down in mexico, but have not gone yet , though I live in wyoming I test it out on the lake . Great casting wen down to a 1/2 an ounce an still cast it out pretty far handle good size trout easily obiously not what is intended for but handled them pretty well with not that much streas on the rod , will handle the more pelagic fish in mexico but till then good rod good price I like it and would recommend it nice shipping and handling
ProsGreat cast back bone and price
April 26, 2015
Not as good as the St. Croix Mojo, but it's alright. It works better with lighter plugs.
March 25, 2015
Got the 10' 1-4oz rod and it is great for throwing plugs. Great back bone, love the low rider guides.

I really like the pole, its the right size for me, I can cast the pole a long ways with no problem.
ConsThe butt handle is just a little to long for me other than that I really like the pole
I have a shimano spheros 8000 looking at the 10ft m or Mh. Looking for a versatile rod to launch sp minnows and bait from surf and rocks. I was wondering if the mh would be able to launch sp minnows is they are usually a little over an oz
For lighter baits such as the sp minnow the 10 foot medium may be the better choice.
I have a battle II 5k looking for a rod to fish off jettys during the spring and fall that I could use to replace my 8' TICA dolphin 1-3. Mainly casting SPs, bombers, bucktails, and shads. I am looking for a little more casting distance. Would you reccomend the 9 to pair with the battle?
The Temple Fork GIS SCS 902-2 Gary Loomis Tactical Series Surf Rod - 9 ft. would pair up well with your battle 2 and would greatly increase your casting distance.
Hi... can you suggest some good reels to pair with the rod? I'm looking at the 11' CLSP1102MHFS model. Will the Penn Slammer III SLAIII6500 pair well considering the rod rating is 15 - 14 lbs? Any other cheaper reels that would pair well? The Penn seems to be on the higher side for me at the moment. I'm looking to use for Surf Fishing and would require a reel that would work well for casting. Thanks for all the help
The Slammer 6500, Spinfisher 6500 and the Daiwa BG 5000 would be good reels to match with the 11' CLSP1102MHFS model rod.
I have a Daiwa Saltist 5000 and Penn Slammer 4500. Which size and power would be ideal to pair with thoes reels for surf fishing here in Hawaii with lures?
The Penn Slammer 4500 would be a great reel to pair with the Daiwa Coastal rod surf fishing in Hawaii with lures. The Slammer is a durable and reliable reel especially using it in heavy saltwater conditions.
I'm looking to build a midrange lightweight surf setup for plugging in the 1-3 oz range on NJ beaches. I'm 5"11 180lbs with decent strength so I can handle my own. As much as I would love a VS vr I can't justify the price. Leaning more towards pairing either this or a mojo surf with possibly a Penn slammer 3. Not sure what length would be most beneficial for the application I'm looking for. Thanks in advance. I'm also open to any other suggestions.
The St Croix MSS106MM2 Mojo Surf Spinning Rods paired with a Penn Slammer 6500 would be a good combo for the application you will be using it for. Thank you for considering TackleDirect for your fishing needs.
Just bought this rod. The MH 11'. I don't fish lures. Mainly chunk bait off the pier and from the surf. I have a Penn Fierce 8000 reel to go with this rod. Can this rod handle chunk bait and the surf of the Outer Banks?
The Daiwa CLSP1102MHFS Coastal Salt Pro Surf Spinning Rod would be a good fit with the Penn Fierce 8000 for fishing the Outer Banks.
What is the weight of the 11' heavy rod and is it a 2pc 50/50 split! Would this rod be good for throwing 150gm poppers or sticks?
The rod weighs 14.4 ounces and the butt section's measurement of the rod is 59" while the tip section of the rod measures approximately 90". This rod is built to fish Daiwa's SP Minnows, so it would be great for fishing lures. But, I believe the 3 to 10 ounce rating is more ideal for fishing bait or lures heavier than a couple ounces in the surf. Although the fast action tip is ideal for lure fishing. Overall this is a great all round rod you could use to fish bait or lures depending on your preference during your current fishing session. Opposed to having two different surf rods, one for lures and one for bait.... You can now have one rod for both! Oh the possibilities... The Saragosa 8000 would be a great fit for this rod. It is also an affordable price for a great rod to add to your quiver.
Which rod would best fit the Daiwa Emblem Pro EX 5000? Is the reel to big for a 9ft model?
Personally, I would recommend the MH 10ft to match with the Daiwa Emblem Pro EX 5000. But, if you prefer the 9ft and want to shy away from looking into purchasing the 10ft than definitely go with the 9ft MH. It would handle the reel nicely, I just think the 10ft MH would be more ideal.
That really depends on the length of the rod you choose, what you are fishing for, and what method you will use i.e.. bait or lures. If you can give us a better idea of what you want to do, we be happy to set you up with the right reel.
