Looking for a musky rod which I could use from shore that would handle 80# braid and large lures. Thoughts?
Thank you!

Pretty much the same as would handle 80 lb braid and large lures from a boat. If you're in a restricted casting area on a bank with trees and so forth, perhaps downsize to a shorter rod. I use a 9' heavy or ex-heavy from my dock on a lake with muskies.

Kinda just it. If ur cramped with trees your gunna want something squant. If you got room, rod length is your best friend. Than what's your definition of "big" in ounces?

I do a lot of shore fishing and it can be a pain, A huge plus if you are in a place they let you wade in. (a lot of places won't let you go in the water) AKA water supply.

From shore the longer the rod the better in my book. I have an 8ft wouldn’t mind going 9 or 10. I would get a h or Xxh so you will be able to cast those big baits. So definitely be sure to look at the lure recommendations on the rod.

If you have the casting clearance, otherwise I agree with Rotorhead. The older classic jerk bait sized rods might work for you, 6'09", 7, 7'02 length rods. Walking along a heavily wooded shoreline with a long rod could really turn out to be a pain in the as-. Kdawg

Depending on the amount of tree's, bushes, and reed's ECT it makes for some weird casting angles to say the least, but what ever it takes to get your lure in front of a fish.
