I you had a choice between the okuma solaris, tica, and tsunami, wanting to throw 8 and bait, with a conventional reel, which would you pick? I am now looking into the 11-12' size. All are around the same price, and i really can't go much over 100 bucks. if there are other rods I should look into, please let me know. thanks

rods

The last time I was at Frisco Rod and Gun in Frisco they still had a few ST. Croix Ben Doer heavers left. Rated for 8oz. About 10.5 ft. BY far the best rod I know of for under 200 bones. They will ship.

You may want to take a look at the Ocean Master rods by bass pro. Their rods are rated from 6-12 and run like 120 dollars. A few months ago they were $40 off buy am sure that the sale has ended. Between those three, I'd go with the Okuma Solaris. It's the cheapest out of the three and just as good if not better than the other two.

Thanks guys,

I have heard good things about all of them, and didn't even think about checking the OM's. I will look into them too. I will be pairing it, most likely, with a slosh 20 and switching it out then throwing lures, with a 6500 c3. I am using a jarvis walker 10' but only rated to 4 oz and wouldl like to get rid of it. still brand new, jsut didn't know what I was looking for when I bought. I have learned a lot from all of you on this site. Thanks again for your responses.

I have both the Okuma Solaris 12' and the Tica 12', both spinning; even though I have only had the Tica for about a month now and I love them both.

The Tica is rated upto 10 oz. and the Okuma is rated upto 8 oz.

Beware that the 12' Tica is 2 section, one 3' and the other 8', am not sure about the other Tica.

DigitalDagger still has the Tica rod on sale. That's where I got mine.
