I've seen the BH cape cod nano recommended on several different forums. When I finally picked up one for the first time three or four months ago in a tackle shop, I was surprised at how fast and stiff the tip was. It was not entirely what I was expecting. I like a softer tip for poppers. It seemed like an awesome rod. Just wasn't sure entirely about the tip. But then again, it is the Cape Cod Nano Special designed for fish that could be 300-600 pounds.
Maybe if Black Hole came out with a San Clemente Nano Special for fish that are generally between 100-250 pounds the tip would be softer. This rod should work a Halco Roosta 195 really well.
