St. Croix "MOJO" casting rods what's the word??

Recommended Posts

Hey all....

Went out to BPS today looking for a Daiwa L+T jig rod but no go. Instead I found a St. Croix MOJO MH 7' rod...the only one left. According to BPS staff, these rods are flying off the racks!!!

Anyone used one yet? What's the buzz on these??

Seems like a nice stick for the price.....

It is I would expect the price to increase next year.

I would say they are ok for the price...  I recommend looking at Powell Max $139, E21 Carrot $150, or St. Croix Avid $179...

The mojo is ok; I found the black foam at the bottom of the rod to not be very durable and prone to scratching so I don't see the rod lasting a long time...

Not to discourage you about your new rod, but just letting you know my experience with the one I owned.

These rods can hardly be beat for the $ imo! They are very sensitive, light and powerful. I own two 7' MH/F rods and i love them. Any rod can last you a long time if you take care of it. I have had no problems with the bottom foam. Even after being in the rod locker. They are very durable too, i beat on them fishing plastics in heavy cover!    ;D

There is a noticable difference when compared to avids (as expected) and carrots in my opinion. I think they make for a nice crank rod. Carrots can be found on ebay for around 110 new. That puts the price point much closer to the mojo. Good luck .

FWIW,,I looked at the Mojo's atbps and wasn't all that impressed, I was ready to buy one until I mounted my reel on a bps finesse rod. If I had to do all over, I'd look at an all star..just my 3 pesos

i have a 7' MF with a Curado E and i like the rod for crankbaits. i think i am going to sand down the cork a bit and add grip tape but other than that its a nice rod.

green on purple is odd though...............

What kind of Dick's sells G Loomis rods???? NOT THE ONE NEAR ME!! :)

Guys,

I paid $89.00 for the Mojo I bought today. Far cry from a $250.00 Loomis or a $150.00 Carrot. I am going out tomorrow and will get a good read on this rod. Seems like you love 'em or hate 'em!!

My brother just bought one for his first baitvasting setup. I've been pretty impressed by it. It's nice and light and pretty sensitive. He got the 7' mh/f.

The word on the Mojo is that is represents marketing genius.  Not marketing genius as in it has 'taken' consumers, yet filled a gap.  The $100 rod market is larger than the $200 and $300 rod market combined, but these $100 rod buyers want a slick looking rod they can be proud of.  The Premier was a competitive rod at the $100 price point as it was, but giving it a complete split-grip makeover with an attractive color just plain makes sense.  Before the Mojo....what $100 rod could be bought that you would want to show your friends?!  Exactly.  Pride of ownership.  I honestly like the Compre blank better, but 'Croix created a really nice package.

i own a 6'6" mh casting rod, and it is great for what it is. for 90 bux, it really is a good rod. though it is a little top heavy, its very sensitive and comfy. i bought it because my "generic" premier(triumph) broke.

I looked at one in Dicks and wasnt moved. I had just been playing with the 250+ dollar G.Loomisis though.

What would the plural for Loomis be ::)

Loomis'  :)

They seem to be really nice looking rods. But in my mind, I see them as Premiers with a different color blank and a split grip vs. a full grip. Won't buy a rod I can't hold and living in the Pac. NW, I know these rods won't be coming to my area.  :) St. croix's steelhead rods make it but there bass rods are rather limited.  >:)

I have one. I like it, as stated it's just a fancy premier, but I think that the premier is a pretty decent rod. I did however come across a st Croix legend for $160 last week. Now that is a great rod for an awesome price.

I recently bought a 7'6"mh and a 7mh Mojo. I put a 7-1 Pro Qualifier on each of them. I am pretty impressed with the sensitivity on both of them for the pricepoint. As mentioned earlier they are a tad top heavy and could greatly benefit with a balancing system. That being said, I am still extremly pleased with my purchase. I'm now looking at the 6'8"m spinning and will probably buy it soon.

I have used St. Croix Premiers for years and love them!!! I have been wanting to try a split grip rod so the Mojo was the perfect option so I bought a 6' 8" M XF spinning rod and love it!!!

I just bought the 7'11" flippin stick and so far I absolutely love it for what I spent on it. Seems to be very balanced with my BPS Johnny Morris on it.

It goes back to the price point. For the money its a great rod, I bought a 7' MHF for general purpose and its great. I picked up a Citica from the Flea Market and its been a great combo for me.

Again, I'm sure there are better rods, but for the money its a good deal.
