HASH(0xa433f96c) out of 5 stars SST-S-902MH. It's a mixed bag. Feb. 5 2013
By Tinker - Published on
Size: SST-S-1062M Verified Purchase

About 90 days in with this rod, I noticed that the first guide - closest to the handle - was loose. Contacted Okuma and they asked me to send them the rod for repair or replacement. Fine, except, if you're not Amazon, the shipping was going to cost me 90% of what the rod cost, new. So, rats! I opted to fill the wraps and the voids with rod-building epoxy and the guide tightened up enough that I could break it down into two pieces without worrying about ripping off the loose guide.

Last month, a different guide - the third one up from the handle - just fell off in mid cast. I hadn't noticed the guide being loose in any way. I cast, I started to retrieve and "ping" the guide that had fallen off slid down the line and hit the reel.

I don't get it. The SST-S-902MH is not an inexpensive rod. It's not in the stratospheric range of some, but it's expensive enough that Okuma should be able to put the stupid guides on properly.

I'm tossing this traitorous stick in the trash and putting Okuma at the top of my list of "Makers of Things That Aren't Worth Buying".


I'm not a fan of Okuma products. Don't know about their ultra-high end professional fishing products, but those offered in my price range usually fall short of what I hope and expect to receive. But, I wanted a decent rod that could throw some weight for light tackle surf fishing and gave the SST-S-902MH a try. No one else makes a rod with similar characteristics for anywhere near this price.

I have it paired with a Pflueger 6750XTX reel and it's not quite in balance.

From the Okuma website, I had expected the rod to have cork handles with a carbon-fiber reel seat. It does not: the handles are covered with a material that's very similar to the material used for golf club grips. They're comfortable, I don't mind them, but I prefer cork, and their weight moves the balance point of the rod too far back towards the butt of the rod.

Okuma chose to use a smaller first guide - the one closest to the reel. This is a rod designed for relatively large freshwater spinning reel and they chintzed out with a size 30 guide when they needed a size 50. The difference in price, for me, between a top-of-the-line size 30 and a size 50 guide is $1.50. It can't possibly be half of that for a manufacturer.

None of my reels, from a 2000-size Shimano through 3000, 3500 and 4000 sized reels, up to the 5000-size Pflueger, are perfectly matched to the rod. The angle of all of the reel shafts intersect the rod well below the tip guide. For this rod, the angle of the shaft of my 5000-sized reel should intersect the rod at the eigth guide, not just barely past the sixth guide.

The reel seat has an alloy (?) decorative sleeve around it, reducing or eliminating any benefit of the underlying carbon-fiber seat.

The 902MH is described as having a medium-fast action which should mean that it flexes in the top 30% of the rod. I would call this a moderate action, flexing throughout the top 50% - 60% of the rod. The last Okuma SST I had was an 8'6" medium weight with a fast acion, but compared to other rods with the same specifications, that Okuma was medium-light with a slow action. I dont think Okuma understands what we expect the description of a rod's action to mean.

None of that affects how I'll continue to use this rod. For light tackle surf fishing in the Northwest, I'll be using up to 3 ounces of lead and only need to toss it 50 yards at most for fish under 6 pounds.

But for salmon fishing - and this is a salmon rod - this rod would stink. Bad alignment of reel shaft angle to rod guides means a lot of unnecessary friction on the line and a high risk of the line breaking off with a 20 pound fish in fast water. The decorative cover over the reel seat could be the difference that allows you to miss delicate nibbles... but the slower than expected action of the rod would be an asset for larger fish in slower currents.

I wanted a light surf rod with more length than inshore rods so I can keep the line above the heavy surf and without moving up to dedicated surf rods. The SST-902-MH gives me 2 extra feet.

I wanted a rod that could toss three ounce weights and still be light enough to lug up-and-down steep hills. The SST-902-MH handles three ounces well enough and weighs less than 8 ounces.

I wanted to stay below $100, and as far below $100 as I could. Bingo.

I wanted a bit more sensitivity than fiberglass or composite and the SST's are high modulus graphite. Despite the woebegone decorative cover on the reel seat, it is a step up in sensitivity.

For what I wanted this is a decent rod and worth 4 stars. Lots of folks like it for salmon fishing, and I don't know why. I'll never risk a game fish using it.

HASH(0xa433fd98) out of 5 stars Okuma SST-S-902MH 9Ft spinning rod Aug. 14 2012
By albert0365 - Published on
Size: SST-S-902MH Verified Purchase
This is a very nice rod, super value for what it cost. The rod is beautifully constructed with strong IM-8 graphite blank, zircornium guides for braided line. This rod is almost a perfect all around rod for where I am fishing. I fish in the Texas Gulf coast, all salt water fishing, mainly wade fishing in the bay areas. I match the rod with an Okuma Salina SA45 spooled with 30lb power pro braided line. This rod is very light for its length, with powerful backbone. I can cast longer than any other rod I ever had. I cast live baits with one ounce sinker with little efforts. The rod is also light enough to cast a half ounce spoon with ease. I landed many big red fish and speckled trouts using this rod with no problem. I fished several times in Alaska water in the Kenai and Valdez areas, and have caught many sockeye, pink, and Chinook. I am sure this will be a great salmon fishing rod for the north. The only disappointment I have is the handle and the fighting butt which is unexpectedly cheap and not constructed with "Premium cork on fore and rear grips" as described in the Amazon sale page.

HASH(0xa433ffc0) out of 5 stars NICE ROD!!! Sept. 1 2013
By Raffpap - Published on
I primarily fly fish but needed some new gear for some new adventures. Not wanting to spending "fly fishing" money on spinning gear that won't get used often, I took a look at Okuma based on a friend's recommendation. After several weeks of research, I bought two of the SST 8.5' medium action rods specifically for silver (coho) salmon in Valdez, Alaska. In that role over two days of hard fishing, they performed flawlessly. I matched these rods up with Okuma Trio 40-S reels and Power Pro 20 lb. braid. Despite their light weight, the rods took everything that numerous hard charging, rod bending silvers in the 10-14 lb. range could throw at them. The rods had the backbone to throw pixies and spinners at much greater distances than others folk's gear. While this trip was only 2 days I saw nothing to indicate they won't last a lifetime. In short, a quality, well-priced rod that proved it's ability to get the job done against larger game fish.

UPDATE: My wife and I put them to work against river silvers in 2014. I wasn't sure what to expect against fish fresh from the salt and in moving water, but got the same great results. Plenty of backbone and power for every fish we battled.

HASH(0xa4346150) out of 5 stars Rod Broke on a Chum Salmon Nov. 5 2014
By Mary K Wilson - Published on
Size: SST-S-962ML Verified Purchase
Caught a couple of 8 to 12 lb. coho in the last week and liked the action of the rod. Today I hooked a rather large chum (I assume it was large since I never saw it) and the rod snapped at the third guide - first guide above the joint. Can't recommend this rod for the "S" that stands for Salmon. ;)

HASH(0xa43460cc) out of 5 stars After Almost 6 Years of Heavy Fishing May 11 2015
By Joe Penn - Published on
Size: SST-S-862ML
Still a fantastic rod (8ft 6" ML) after almost 6 years of heavy usage.

I purchased this rod during a salmon fishing trip out in Washington State back in 2009 and paired it with a Quantum PT Energy size 40 reel, the combination was great; the rod action and sensitivity was exactly what I was looking for.

After returning from the trip I have continued to use the combination out here on the east coast (MD, DC, VA), over the last 5 years (close to 6) and hundreds upon hundreds of landed fish later, the rod has shown no signs that it is willing to retire anytime soon.

Species landed thus far with the referenced SST rod:

- Pink Salmon (originally purchased for)
- Smallmouth Bass
- Largemouth Bass
- Northern Snakeheads
- Rockfish (Stripers)
- Sea/Speckled Trout
- Rainbow Trout
- Crappie
- Shad
- Bluefish
- Yellow Perch (River jigging and plugging with small rattle traps)
- Carp

By far the funnest and most exciting usage I have found for this rod is Carp fishing. I have landed several Carp in the 15lb range with this rod using finesse fishing tactics (a size 10 Quantum PT energy reel loaded with 4lb mono mounted to this rod). Carp fishing with this rod is so fun that I have ordered another one and ordered 2 "Okuma Avenger B Baitfeeder Size 30" reels, these combinations will be used exclusively for my Carp outings.
