Hey Guys, I want to start out by saying this is a great site that I have been visiting for a while, but this is my first post. I have a trip booked with DSH next week and need some advice. I have a chunking, and a jigging set up but now it is time for a popping rig. I have a $400 dollar budget for a combo, but I think I might have a rod that will do the trick. The rod is a custom rod that I bought last year online from a guy from the west coast. I can not ID the blank but I believe it is a seeker. I can tell you that it is almost identical to 7 foot ugly stick tiger stick 30/80. The rod is a little bit bigger in diameter and about 2 inces longer. Questions are do you think this rod will have the backbone for fighting YFT, if so what conventional reel would you pair it with. Any input would be greatly apprecieated.
