St. Croix Mojo Bass Rod?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the St. Croix Mojo Bass rods? Thinking about getting another baitcaster setup for plastics; I was thinking about the 7'1" M/F. Has anyone used them before?

I have the 7ft med and it's an alright rod but there are better rods out there in the price range.

The new mojo bass rods with the sv111 blanks are decent rods. Much lighter and more balanced than the previous version. I currently own two of the 7'1 mhf, and he 71mf. I think that for the price, you are getting a good rod.

I have the 7 mhmf spinner bait mojo bass and I love it, great rods make sure you get the new ones scIII graphite. I throw most of my treble hook baits and of course chatter baits and spinner baits. They are extremely light rods I plan on getting another I want the wacky spinning set up.

Welcome aboard!

I haven't used them, but if you do a search on the forums
you'll find a lot of discussion on the rods.

Make sure you get the new generation with the scIII blank.   I wasn't a fan of the previous generation.

Just get the avid or avid x in the same length and power you want and you will have a better rod. It will resale better if you ever want to sell it as well.

I've got a few Mojo's. The new Mojo's built on the SC3 blanks are much lighter, well balanced, and sensitive. They're great rods for the money and I doubt you'll be disappointed if you buy one. The rod you're looking at will do just fine for weightless to lightly weighted plastics.

They improved them a bit with the new graphite.  If you can afford it I would suggest you look at several rods made by Irod. The first is the Irod Genesis II IRG 693C. It is called the Harold"s Lone Star Special. He helped gesign a very versatile rod. It specs as a 6'9 MH 3/16 to 1/2 lures.. This will handle unweighted plastics like Sencos, all of the lighter texas rigs, shakey heads etc as well as jigs and spinnerbaits. The next steps upin the line up  would be the IR703C and 704C. Both excellent rods, both 7 footers, it is just that you need to think about if you are talking about the lighter end of plastics or more like 3/8 to 1 ounce texas rigs and carolina rigs. If you are curious call out and talk to them. I did before I purchased my IRG 703CC, they were right it is a perfect rod to throw small cranks and rattle traps.  All of the Irods Genesis II rods are well made, well balanced, super light weight and sell for $149. 

My second suggestion is to look at Dobyns rods.Gary Dobyns builds a terrific rod as well. Look at a Dobyns Fury FR 703C. They sell for $110

I have owned many brands of baitcasting rods in the same price range as the Mojo Bass lineup. I had owned one of the earlier versions of the Mojo bass which while I liked a lot about that rod I did find it to be tip heavy (which was a deal breaker for me).

I had heard that they had revamped that Mojo Bass series so I recently picked up two of the new SCIII rods. Both are the 7'1" medium heavy fast. The new version feels like a well made rod, feels good in my hand and is no longer tip heavy. The rod feels slightly heavier overall than some of my other MH rods but not excessively so. I will likely buy more of these as needed.

Nice review - and here's a little info nugget I didn't realize until I just looked it up.

That new Mojo Bass - SCIII model is THE LIGHTEST 7 ft or 7'1" MH Fast Casting rod ST Croix currently offers in it's Entire line of rods.

Legend Elite - 4.7, Legend Xtreme - 5.0, LTB - 4.4,  Premier Casting - 4.7, Mojo Bass - 4.2, Bass X - 4.7,  Triumph - 4.7 . . .

Doesn't mean it's the best - but if it's what you're looking for, It Is The Lightest.
