    How do these compare (feel & performance wise) to the Shadow Stalker Inshore rods? I'm debating between the two models (8'6" xh)

    Shadow Stalker = lower price, lifetime warranty
    SCT = higher price, 1 year warranty, better components?

    TIA!

    I have the same question, anyone know what mayor difference between those two rods?
    I currently have a shadow stalker rod and would like to know if it worth to switch to for a SCT inshore rod

    shadow stalker with lifetime warranty vs SCT ishore rod

    I also have a Shadow Stalker 8' xh, and I just ordered a SCT inshore 8'6" xh. It's back ordered until later this month. Once I pull on some fish with the SCTi, I'll let you all know!

    Landed a nice Yella at the 'Nados last month with the Shadow Stalker and it performed very well. Light and powerful.

    I've heard glowing reviews of the SCTi 8'6" for throwing light/medium iron, so I have pretty high expectations. We shall see.

    Im holding the urge to buy a new rod since okuma just released a new PCH inshore rod, which it will be the flagship for inshore fishing rods.

    this thing is getting overboard just like the cell phones, every year there comes a bunch of new toys with new tech to tease us.

    I have both Shadow Stalker and the SCT 8' 6" XH....great rods! I think the SCT is built better but love both of them. I have a Tranx 400 on the SCT and the Lexa 400HD on the Stalker.....if you were wondering.

    I have both in 8’6”. The SCT is a bit beefy-er if that makes sense. Both are great rods!

    I have both the SCTi 8'6" XH with a Lexa 400(surface iron) and Komodo 463 on the 8' XH(flyline). PCH 7'6" H with Andros 5ii do everything with this set up, flyine, bottom, irons, yoyo. PCH 8' XH on Andros 12ii bottom, flyline. Love Okuma new stuff! Performs flawlessly. Landed that yt on 8' SCTi and Komodo

    The SCT Albacore rods do have a softer tip and a more parabolic action than the other SCTI or Shadow stalker rods.

    Hey Yella1 -- have you had a chance to test out the SCTi 8'6" yet?

    Sorry for the late response. Yeah, man. That SCTi is the BOMB! I have used it on several trips, catching calicos and jubmo bonitos up to 10lbs. The rod is SO solid. Loads up like a dream on the 2-4 oz colt snipers. Paired with my Lexa 400HD, it casts a MILE. Sensitive tip for long casts, but serious backbone for the fight.

    Definitely my favorite inshore-style rod yet. It will definitely be my go-to setup for artificials on Coronado Island trips next season. I have no doubt it will handle big Yellowtail with ease. Seriously, can't say enough good good stuff about it.

    What you have said is exactly how to describe all the SCT rods.

    Have you caught anything big on the lexa 400 with the Stalker rod. I was going to put a lexa 400 on a PCH 8 H
    Using it for irons and a popper here and there. But would be targeting yellowtail and tuna mostly.

    you have just solved my problem, thanks.

    Going to pick up a PCH 8 H for a lexa 400.
    Why do you prefer the SCTi for the lexa, is it the extra length for casting irons?

    Yes that extra length really helps to flick those irons out further. As mentioned my 8' SCTi and Komodo are for live baits. I feel i could use either rod length though , i just have them set up different. 4-5 foot Fluoro leader for live bait on 8' SCTi and straight 40# mono on the 8'6" set up just for iron.
