    Hi Kilsong. I have some of the original Black Hole Cape Cod Special 50B 350 gram rods. All four have PE6 reels. I have been fishing them at 20 pounds of drag. How much do you feel is the max drag for this rod now that its been out for a long time. I would like to fish 25 pounds of drag for these larger yellowfin tuna off NY/NJ. Do you feel the rod will take it or should I stick with 20 pounds. Also, been using an 8/0 Owner Offshore Bait Hook. At 20 pounds I pull a few hooks. I'm figuring I will pull more at 25 pounds. What hook do you suggest for chunking?
