Hey guys. Im from southern california and recently got hooked on tuna popping after reading a few articles and watching some videos from youtube. Im getting ready to buy my first tuna popping rod but I had a few questions. This is what I had in mind after reading through the forums on here. A shimano stella 10000 SW on a Tuna Sniper rod. Popping is not a big thing here in cali and spinning reels are known as coffee grinders and shunned upon. For what Im not sure. Out here in california the biggest tuna would probably not pass a 100#'s and the majority probably wouldnt even be 40#'s. Would my setup in mind be a little bit of an overkill? Would I be able to get by with like a Phenix spinning rod rated 20-40 on an 8000 stella? WOuld the lighter setup still be a good popping setup? So many questions but I will leave it at this for now. Any help is much appreciated from this newb.
