Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I don't like to rate things until I have had a chance to use them. (This Review was for the 9ft MH) After a full season all I can say is I love this pole. Strong and light with good back bone for any fish you are likely to encounter from the surf. I use it mainly for Stripers, Blues and Fluke. The pole casts 6ozs with ease. I have used it with 3oz plugs and such and also cast very well. The pole is sensitive enough to detect Whiting, but strong enough to pull in larger fish. Pulled in a few Brown Sharks up to 4 feet long the year pole was bent in half but no problem.
Love this pole so much, bought one for my fishing buddies birthday and will probably try the 10 footer myself this year. I also had a chance to work with Tica's customer service as the rod has a rubber plug at the bottom which must have fallen off late last year. Contacted Tica's customer service and spoke to a live person who was so accommodating despite it being past the 1 year warranty...
Really nice rod for the money. I have had many rods, including Tica's. This is the first in this series, and I am fairly impressed. Nice looking, lightweight for the size, and a really good value. If you are looking for a competition heaver, you're looking in the wrong price range. If you are looking for a really nice surf rod without breaking the bank, then buy this. You will be happy.
I have owned a Tica 9 ft. medium surf spinning rod for the better part of ten years. I have found that the handling,balance & castability to be on the same level as any top surf rod of similar size. The only reason I cannot give it a 5 star rating(which it deserves) is the guide sizing. I feel they should be a larger size,especially the first guide. I feel as it tends to restrict the casting distance. Instead of an 1 1/4" opening; a 1 1/2" guide opening would serve the rods casting distance better. Like I stated it is a great and dependable rod. I would recommend the rod only inform the interested party to down size the reel. I use a Penn 560 slammer with 50 lb. braid.
