I just bought this brand new Spheros 8000PG reel off ebay and now I need a rod to go along with it....
It'll get spooled with 50# braid and will be used for offshore fishing off of cattle/party/head boat fishing and jigging. I'd like a rod that can handle heavy vertical jigs (up to 7oz) as well as big plugs/swimbaits/bucktails. I'm currently living in Cali and will be fishing for small yft, bft, wahoo, and mahi....(but will also get used in the Florida Keys)
Does St. Croix make a rod that will work for this???
Since I got such a good deal on the reel (less than $100 shipped) I'm willing to spend a decent amount on a good rod if it suits all my needs....

I'm liking this rod.
I was torn between the tallus and the teramar for a tarpon rod. If I did a little more offshore fishing, I would have gone w/ the tallus spinner. have a tallus conventional and like it a lot.
(yes I have sipped their cool-aid, rod flavored anyway), as I own some.
DTNS801530 Eupro ( I own both of those rods and don't have a problem recommending either).
If that 6' jigging rod won't work for those California head boats , I'd look for something out there, like a OTI Tuna Sniper or some kind of Seeker.
Thanks I'll check these out as well as the Paraflex....

Only 2 reviews on the Carnage??? There's 2 on Amazon ( 1 pro, 1 against) 2 reviews on Bass Pro (again, 1 favorable 1 not so) Lots of threads on other boards about them and I could not fine another negative review.
So with the limited split reviews about the Carnage and your personal experience with the Trevalas what rod do you recommend?
The Trevalas are good, but, IMHO, the Carnage is better.
