    Anyone familiar with the casting rod? Would like some feed back about this rod pros and cons please. I am looking to pair it with a Lexa 400 for surface iron for yellowtails.

    Don't have cons. I fish plastics and smaller iron with mine. It casts will has a bend that suits me and is durable. Fit ans finish are nice, I would by another. I price is nice for what you get,

    Thanks for your feedback. I seen YouTube vids of the rod In action against some yellowtail. Looks like a good rod for the price.

    I just went ahead and ordered the 8'6" xh online as well. From what I've read and seen videos of, it seems like great bang for the buck. Should get it some time next week I hope. Can you post pics of yours if it's not too much trouble??

    Wow, those fuji guides look really nice. Checked the price online, seems like there's a lot of bang for the buck with this rod. It's on my wish list.

    I just got mine in last week. Paired up nice with Komodo 463 or Lexa 400. Feels well balanced with either one.

    I am selling a brand new extra SCT inshore rod 8’XH for $130 if anyone is interested. I bought two but only need one. I am located in north San Diego.

    Wow, looks great with both reels. No kidding. Plus, I'm happy to meet another dude who cranks left handed. Can be limited options when shopping for reels. I'm trying to shop for a reasonably priced tuna reel for lefty. Possibly a Shimano Torium 30?? Any suggestions?

    I actually have both exact reels that you have pictured that I'm considering pairing with this rod (when I finally pull the trigger and buy it). Gray Lexa 400 (left) and Komodo 450 (left). Bought a sweet Okuma PCH 7'6" Heavy to pair with the Komodo for Yellowtail, so maybe I'll put the Lexa on the SCT. Nice to have options, no?

    Sorry this post is so dis-jointed. I'm just really excited to go fishing (been a while).

    Can't wait for the pelagics to return to San Diego so we can get at them!

    I'm in the market for a tuna reel too. I am right handed but prefer my bait casters as lefties. I just like the cast out right handed and not have to switch hands. I've learned to deal with my conventional reels due to the few choices you have with a lefty reel. I also feel better fighting a fish with the rod on my dominant hand and just cranking with my left. Just feels natural. I have just learned to deal with using right handed conventional reels. I like the talica 2 speeds though. Leaning towards that or an Accurate for tuna. I'm just getting into tuna. Just fish for yellowtail and cudas currently. The SCTi and Lexa 400 is my surface iron set up and the komodo and pch rod I use for flyline and yoyo. I have the 8' xh 30-60 PCH rod and it' a killer set up for Yellowtail.

    by chance do you guys know the difference of this SCTi vs the SCT albacore rods other than the lenght

    lets say a SCTi MH vs SCT albacore MH?
    I really like the SCTi rods but fishing from a Panga in Baja I feel better using a 6.6 or 7ft rod than a 8ft (albacore rods are 6.6 and 7ft) but dont know they cast a 3/4oz lure

    Sorry buddy I'm not familiar with that rod at all. Might be too short to get a good cast out of it. Also depends how far you need to cast out. Wish I had more positive input to your question.
