Just wanted to know if anyone has used any of these type rods? Bass pro has one that really feels good. They only have 1. Need some feedback on the shimano terez rods.

Hey Wheatie. The Terez line is a fairly high quality rod that incorporates a good quality graphite blank with fuji K series tangle free guides. I often use these guides myself when building a "braid"only spinning rod, and they are also a higher frame guide which makes it a bit easier for me to set up the rod for a specific reel,and the guides do help shed some of the tangles often associated with the lighter braids. The rods are lightweight, have a somewhat smaller diameter than some others, but I have had a little feedback on them being a bit "brittle". The only thing I personally don't like about them is the EVA foam grips(on the ones I have seen personally) and the aluminum reel seats. Over time, as I'm sure many can attest to, the EVA begins to degrade and look bad, as well as the aluminum seats,especially when fished in salt. I only use top grade cork grips and fuji deluxe graphite reel seats. The cork just feels better with age, and the graphite seats are almost bulletproof(all with reasonable care of course). The price point is comparable to what I get for a St. Croix SCIII inshore rod, which in my humble opinion is at or very near top of the line in inshore rod blanks. All in all though, I would not throw one overboard if I had it, and certainly wouldn't try to keep you from buying one. They are a quality stick. Just my $.02

Thanks for some info. I have a penn 300 torque that I was wanting to match up with a really good rod.

Call me "Cheapie" or practical. I broke another rod tip Saturday. I had it fixed in less than five minutes. I carry several size rod tips on the boat. I just cut the broken tip and replaced it. I use crazy glue and shrink wrap. I give the new tip a shot of crazy glue then have a piece of shrink wrap and heat and I am fishing again. I don't own an expensive rod. My rods are Berkley's running around $20.00 and an Ugly Stick in the mix. I have clients, children, women on my boat. All of them have "elephant feet". My system works for me.

Jeff - Saw what you wrote about the Fuji K's. How do those hold up with heavier braid(+30lbs) in comparison to the SiC Fuji's????????

Just picked up a terez and really like it. I love the alps reel seat and will use it for popping, jigging, and cobia jigs. There are a ton of models, so do some research. If you want a straight jigging setup with the torque reel - go with the okuma cedros series - best value I have found. Southern Drawl in bluffton had both last time I was there (and a lot of specialized jigging stuff if that is your thing).

Shimano makes some pretty tuff rods. I have had the Trevalla series and love them. They will easily handle anything off of the GA coast and even tuna up to around 150lbs.

Trevalla's are great - 2 of my buddies fish them. One of the rods had an issue after a trip - BPS replaced it on the spot without any ?'s/receipt. I would say that is an awesome warranty. I have a couple cedros rods b/c of a little lower price point. I pulled in a 130lb + shark this last trip on the 200g rod paired with an accurate 500n. I can't believe the rod held up - I tried to break it, but these lite jigging rods seem indestructible! I better go knock on wood before the next trip.....

LAST YEAR I BOUGHT A COUPLE OF TEREZS AND A TREVALLA. I LOVE THEM ALL. THE XXH TREVALLA IS GREAT FOR JIGGING.
