    I own two of each and it entirely depends on your target fish. It would be inaccurate to say that one is better than the other for all situations.

    I usually built my jigging rods around 5'

    I got both 760 L and 765 XL

    how much may be the PE class of each?

    my impression is 760 can fight very big fishes, like tuna from 40 to 80 kg...
    (85-200 lb) if coupled with a stella 20000

    the 760 will be good for some nice size tuna
    what do you the XL for?

    765 seem to be the best for big amberjack (20-40kg) without to have too power and still enjoy fighting with 6-10 kg dentex... or 6-12 kg amberjack that are the 90% of my target, are you agree?

    the ather calstar, like GF755H,GF755XH,GF755XXH, have the same progressive and moderate action of L and XL?

    I' looking to a rod for try by vertical jigging for Yellow Fin tuna over 50-60 kg to... ????

    I saw that any guys use for jigging graphiter offshore series, like 700 series, that differ from tuna series at the same line lb, for lenght and action, defined tuna for tuna series and ex-fast for offshore series...

    which of them have a more moderate action? It seems tuna, but without touching them...

    who can ask me about?

    I'm in some difficult to understand USA convention on rod power...

    for example, 760L is done for 30-80lb, 40-50lb raccomanded...

    a guy, what drag (max) can use on that rod?

    80/3=27? 50/3=17? ...... which is general criteria?

    its a light blank
    we cut a bit
    and it will fish nice, right in the middle range no problem about 20
    and you may even be able to push it higher
    nice blank;)

    20lb of drag is What I was thinking... I cut it to 5' and 765XL to 4'6" (dentex & amberjack) and decide 13lb of drag for that...

    I'm building a super seeker cjbf60H, but it seems more strong of 760L notwithstandings it is rated 40-60lb....

    the true rating of 760 is 40-50lb?

    each company had its criteria of rating?
