I paired this rod with my Shimano Tranx 500 HG. It is like this rod was made for this reel. Casting surface irons and colt snipers is truly a satisfying experience. The distance of casts is really impressive.
ProsThis combo will cast long distances. Strong with the right amount of flexibility.

Absolutely love this rod, paired it with a 10k size shimano saragosa. I’ve used it from everything to bridge snook and large reds to sharks and gag grouper. It has great sensitivity when using live baits and the back bone to pull up large fish or turn heads.
ProsBack bone strength and tip sensitivity.

Put a Cabo 60 spooled with 65# spider wire. I can pull anything from the bottom of the Pacific Ocean off the west coast of Oregon. Plan on using for tuna and halibut this year. Don’t see any problems.

This rod can handle everything you throw at it. It's tough, strong and sensitive. The Terez line of rods are some of the best made. From medium to extra heavy, these rods will help you catch more fish !!!
ProsMade for braid. Light weight. Sensitive. Strong. Tough. Comfortable
ConsA fairly light tip for some situations.

Shimano TZS72MBLK Terez Spinning Rod, Used this rod for everything and it's a great all around boat rod. I've jigged up to 5oz with it, thrown lures with it and bottom fished with it.
ProsGreat all around rod
ConsHeard they dont like being dropped. Hand mine bounce of the rail and hasn't broken yet. I guess time will tell.

Had a chance to go grouper fishing last week and the rod performed flawlessly. I love the light weight and strong backbone. Works especially well for my 11 year old son to be able to use lighter equipment and still be to fight big fish.
ProsLight but strong

Shimano Terez 7'2" M Spinning
October 3, 2019
Got this shipped down to NC and was happy right away with the condition it arrived. Packed perfectly and safe. Tested the fitment of my Shimano 8000 Reel on it first thing, fits like it was made for it. Locks down tight and solid. Just got back from a trip using this set up. The Rod has a very light and sensitive feel. I was able to use it for both heavy bottom fishing and live baiting. I was confident in either method that I had the right rod for the job. Largest fish landed so far was in the 30lb range. The Rod is impressive to look at, the guides are super smooth and didn't have and issues with casting. This is a Beautiful, Versatile, and Strong Rod.

Use this to get 8’ away from boat while trolling for kings. Stick it in a holder and pull ballyhoo on the outside surface. Stayed many a smoker as well as some dolphin. Great rod that lets you know when you get hit and also stout enough to get them in.
ProsLight weight and plenty strong

Mounted a Saltiga LD40 on here for striper. I must admit I was a bit worried when I saw the rod diameter was narrower of some of my fluke/sea bass combos. After using it this weekend I have no complaints whatsoever. After using it, it is by far one of the best rods I have fished.
ProsLightweight, great backbone, comfortable grip, and amazing action.

Exceeding My Expectation Too
February 7, 2019
So I bought the XXH as well as the XH. Shimano is winning. The XXH is paired with a Talica 20II for grouper, tuna and reef donkeys. The XH is paired with a Daiwa Saltist 50P and this combination is so light, I couldn't believe it would handle offshore bottom fishing in depths 100 -400' for smaller snapper bottom dwellers. My buddy had the bright Idea to hook this setup to his bully (American Staffordshire terrier) on a harness. I was as surprised at the rod as I was at the reel. This rod seems to come to life under pressure. Only thing left is to test it out at sea. I will give an update with pics soon.

The responsiveness of this rod is amazing given the overall weight. It also has a very forgiving tip and a super unforgiving back bone, for the fish that is. And a perfect butt length.

Good casting!
January 4, 2019
So far so good! Casting with 3 oz no problem. The reel seat is kind weak, rod clam is a must! Pair with Torium 14 so beautiful! Got another MH TEREZ (white) 7’ with trinidad 20 got no problem landing 11’ shark while boat fishing.
ConsNeed a better reel seat for this price!

great snapper rod
September 12, 2018
Used this rod for red snapper this season when it was open for it's short time. Paired it with Accurate 2 speed FX2 400 and braid fishing in 70 feet. Nice and light setup. Just don't let anyone crank down the drag and high stick it. Broke one this year on a 6 foot nurse shark.
By Dan
You will break the reel seat with heavy drag
August 24, 2018
The blank is awesome but the reel seat is pretty weak. I can see how this rod is great for medium tackle jigging but while leaning into a snag in order to bend a hook I broke the reel seat on mine (mind you I was fishing 100 lb braid but the rod is rated for 200). Shimano replaced the rod for free but I now I use it for lighter applications.

great rod
August 15, 2018
rod is very strong for its weight. Just landed a 50 lb yellow fin w 25 lb line. Took over one hour but i was always in control. All rod components are of top quality. I just wish the top fore grip were longer. I have used this rod for 5 seasons and it still looks like new. Probably landed over 100 tunas with it.
ProsExcellent quality rod and components. Guides lined up to rod spline.
ConsFore grip could be longer

May 31, 2018
love this rod. currently have it paired with a cabo 80. Have only caught stripers and blues on it for time being. Casts great and not bad to jig with given its length. hoping to get some whitey and small BFT, possibly some mahi as well. I am sure this rod will be up for the task

April 27, 2018
It handles like a medium heavy snook rod BUT will whip huge grouper, tarpon, Goliaths. Crazy light, castable, massive backbone. Best rod ever..I live in SW Florida, chase the big boys, this rod on my Penn Clash 6500 tames the beasts with authority!
