Best bang for the buck. Can be used for freshwater or saltwater and has upgraded eyelets for saltwater without and increase in price over St. Croix freshwater spinning rods.
Beautifully built rod with outstanding performance.

Recieved my rod along with a new reel. Took it out fishing made no more than 10 cast total and snapped the tip of the rod off about a foot from the end. I'm guessing I got a defective rod or something because it was brand new. Other than that it casted fine and i enjoyed it while it lasted.

Great rod, plenty of backbone for big bull reds yet sensitive enough for specks.
There's a reason they call them "The Best Rods On Earth"!

The St. Croix tidemaster 7'0 is the best rod purchase ive made yet. The day after i bought it, i pulled in a nice 27" Redfish and the amazing strength and backbone these rods have is unbelievable.
I love this rod! I put a Stradic 4000 reel on it.

I bought a Tidemaster TIC76MF and paired it with a Revo Inshore. It's my favorite combo to use. It is balanced nicely. Sensitivity is good. This rod is easily my best and favorite to cast. I like the feel of this rod over my similarly spec'd Clarus Inshore. The build quality is excellent.

I have an older model of this rod that's a 3-piece & have it paired with a calcutta. I have used it saltwater bottom fishing, inshore redfishing, and bass fishing aswell. It is one tuff rod with quality eyes. Highly recommend it.

I purchased the item to be paired with a ABU Garcia 6500. I can't be more pleased with the product. Did well on the mighty Roanoke River chasing rock fish. Will eventually use for Red Drum fishing

I paired my 7 medium action with a Curado 300E and 20# braid line. I normally use the rod for baby and medium tarpons. But this rod can handle more than that. Two days ago I catch a 140 pounds tarpon with no problem. A 1:40 hour fighth but the rod responded to the war. No complain at all. Only I have a problem when I first bought the rod. The guides were out of line; I had to re wrap the guides again.

Highly recommended.

Travel Spinning - Good rod, but would prefer a different reel seat

Purchased the tidemaster for a bonefishing trip to the Bahamas. The rod performed very well overall, but the reel seat could be improved by providing 2 lock rings instead of one. A metal reel seat would also be better in my view. The reel tended to become loose on a tough fight giving a sense of insecurity just when you don't need that.
