What is the best salt water fishing pole?

You have got to understand that the term “best” might have an entirely different meaning to anyone you ask this question to. For instance the answer kijed 7 n gave would not in my opinion be anything more than a poor choice for what I want in a salt water rod. However if I were looking to invest in the “best” rod for me personally I would go to a custom rod builder and have him give me his opinion on which rod blank, seat and guides for the type fishing I was planning on using it for and have him build it for me. Otherwise I would look at the premium rods available through Basspro or Cabela’s and choose the rod that would be long and strong enough for whatever I was trying to catch. If you’re shark or tuna fishing then your trout/redfish rod would would most likely not have enough backbone to muscle in a 100 lb + fish. On the other hand if redfish or other saltwater species up to 50+ lbs, i would opt for a rod int the 8′ lenght with line weight up to 20lb mono. My favorite rod is a 7’6 All-Star Flippin stick which has caught fish over 40 lbs on 20 lb test with no problem. The thing is you get what you pay for. There are rods with prices I can’t justify owning and others I wouldn’t buy at any price. I feel like a little research will be your best bet.

This last one is super cool but at over $1000. I don’t need one.
