These Rods are designed for both beginners and seasoned anglers. While these types of rods were originally designed for vertical jigging they are now used for many diffrerent jigging applications as well as bottom and drift fishing.
Their short length and power also makes them ideal for kayak fishing. Components include Fuji guides and high quality graphite rod blanks. Designed and tested with Star's 50+ years of experience, we feel that these rods are the best value in their class.
Reels feature four ball bearings for a super-smooth drive, and one way roller bearing for slack-free hooksets. Aluminum spool, stainless steel main shaft, computer balanced rotor, and right or left hand retrieve make the reels ideal for these combos.
I recently purchased the Star Arial Surf Spinning rod

I have a few star rods, and have always been A fan of there rods. I am happy with the performance of the rod. This if the first star reel I have purchased. The reel seems decent with the exception of the bail flipping over when casting(3 times the first day). I hope I can fix this issue with the bail, The combo seemed to work well together.
ProsThe rod has nice action and is the perfect length for targeting blues and stippers close to the beach. The rod is very light but has enough back bone.
ConsThe bail flipped over a few times when casting. I only used the rod once since I got it but it happened 3 times the first day. I have seen on new rods before the bail be to loose or to tight. I tried to tighten when I got home but all the screws seem tight. Hopefully it just need to break in a little/
