    I am looking for the ideal cow popping rod that I can afford. I have several in mind and I just began looking at some blanks and I found a lamiglass rated at 65-100 pounds. It is 7 feet 6 inches and 2 pieces. Any ideas if this will work? I have no experience with Lamiglass, so any input is appreciated. It is 100% graphite and is one of their new jigging and saltwater series introduced in 2007.

    The blank is NZ90-2XH 7'6 2piece 65-100 lb.

    At 7'6" , one may not be able to cast the required distance to reach the tuna school , may be an over 8 footer rod will be a better choise . :p

    i looked at that blank as well, but in the end went with the OTI blank because i trusted it more.

    lamiglas used to make some of the best rods years ago, i havent played with any of the newer models. 7'6" is fine, plenty of distance can be acheived with it.
