    I need a spinning rod for offshore fishing, mainly for Kingfish, Cobia, Gt & Tuna, nothing more than 100 lbs. I'm looking for a light weight Long casting rod.

    I've done some research & these are the ones I like:

    1- St. Croix Premier Saltwater Fishing Rod SWS76MHF
    2- St. Croix Avid Inshore Spinning Rods AIS76HF
    3- Lamiglas Kayak Series Rods LK7230S
    4- Accurate SR Spinning Series Rods ACCSR702540MHS
    5- Seeker Black Steel Series Rods G 670-7' S

    Any recommendations or opinions?

    Yes I recommend you look at an OTI popping rod also.

    i have that seeker black steel rod. it is strong with a very soft tip. makes an awsome cobia, kingfish rod. will handle 100 lb tuna but would rather have a longer and better casting rod for that purpose. excellent general purpose rod though.

    I think this rod (St. Croix Premier Saltwater Fishing Rod SWS76MHF) is a real performer for its price. I cant find it online though!! Backordered almost everywhere!!
