Grumpys Tackle is proud to present our own factory built surf rod, the Sandstorm.
Born on the Jersey shore, but useful anywhere there is water. Designed by our in-house rod Builder, Bob Hryszko, Sandstorm rods are built with high quality Fuji components, including tangle free K-Guides. The reel seat has a locking ring so that loose reels will be a thing of the past. The rod comes with a one year limited warranty.
We have three models, the original 9 foot rod rated for for 3/4 to 3 oz lures, a 10'6 inch model rated for 1 to 5 oz lures, and a new 7'10" model rated for ½ to 2 oz. The 9' and 10'6" are two piece rods with an approximate 65/35 split. The 7'10" is a one piece blank.

As suggested by the staff, I purchased this rod as a replacement for a rod I broke. It is a great feeling rod and performed very, very well throwing a variety of lures this December from Ava Jigs, metal lips swimmers, bucktails, shads and poppers. I would recommend this rod to anyone wanting a quality rod at a great price!! Thanks Grumpy's!!
I bought the Sandstorm 7'-10" and a BG 3000 during Grumpy's Black Friday sale intending to use it next Spring and Summer. But with sand eels and bass in tight to the beach, I used it right away to catch 20+ small to medium stripers pitching Avas, shads/paddle tails , bucktails, SPs, Mag darters, etc. and I love it! Nice quality build, casts great, super light, easy-to-fish combo but with plenty of power to handle fish into the low teens.
Great awesome house rod from grumps the 7,10’ great light rod awesome action and pairs well with my shimano vanford 4000 for this fall run definitely will not be tired casting this over and over also love the double lock reel seat good move on yall
I love it! I love how it’s super light, yet really strong. What is the blank made out of and who makes the blank?
