Hi all, Am hoping to have a spinning rod built for targeting bluefins in Cape Cod Bay/Gulf of Maine, and have narrowed it down to three options: 1) OTI 7'6" 50lb popping rod 2) Calstar 700H 3) Calstar 700XH After having gone toe-to-toe with a few large fish this year with Capt. Dom, I've realized that a shorter stick (less than 7'6") is a better choice for me than one of the longer blanks, eg Tuna Sniper or OR Black Devil. I suspect I'll be throwing a variety of different lures--anything from 1.5 oz Yozuri Crystal Mags to 3 oz spooks to Slug-gos on jigheads, and want something that will let me get a decent distance with these baits while still having the juice to pull a large BFT through its circles with 20+lbs of drag on it. I'm planning to slap the stick on a Spheros 18000 with Carbontex drags. Any thoughts? I know a lot of you guys have experience with these rods and the target species and thought I'd seek some input before checking them out myself. Thanks! -Willy.
