The CSX surf is going to turn ALOT of heads. Really really sharp rod. If you are looking for a good mid priced rod to slingshot plug with take a hard look at these. They are going to put a dent in rods like the Airwaves, Dolphins and Mojo's. I am very very impressed.

This year in southern California was a challenge for every level of fisherman but just below our border, there was a terrific fishery brewing due to the currents and conditions that we have been missing. Our trip really started when we reached Cedros Island. With all of our inshore gear ready, we approached knowing that the Yellowtail fishing was on fire. We knew this was going to be our chance to fish some Okuma tackle that we had been admiring all season but hadn’t really been able to use much due to slow fishing in our local waters. In the arsenal of tackle to be used were the Cedros star drag 10 and the Cedros lever drag 10, along with the Cortez star drag 10 and one of my favorites, the Andros 5II. As we all know jigging and live bait fishing yellowtail is not only fun, but with fish weighing up to 40-pounds they can put inshore reels to a test. And test they did. Not one of the reels showed any signs of fatigue. We were fishing all these reels with Tuf-Line 65lb. braided line to 30lb. mono top shot. This combo was perfect for this application. The rods we were using were the Cedros jigging rods for the Cedros reels, Makaira rods for the Cortez reels and the awesome Cedros inshore rods on the Andros reel.
Jigging for tuna, snapper and jack species requires high-speed backed by high-strength. The Okuma Cedros high speed spinning reels deliver on both. Okuma Blade Body Design maintains a comfortable, compact body size while Alumilite Construction assures formidable strength. Okuma's precision Dual Force Drag system lends extremely smooth, highly capable and balanced stopping power. Whether pulling fish off wrecks, or stopping tuna determined to dive into the abyss, Cedros' exciting styling only lends to the adrenaline-filled experience of connecting with the ocean's most powerful creatures. Pair Cedros spinning reels with Cedros Speed Jig or Cedros Coastal rods for a matched system that excites the senses and begs to be fished.
