    Don't see too much on the site regarding the two popping rods. Based on the specs that I have read from the OR web site, the BD100 seems to be a better caster with a softer tip but the BD200 has a lot more backbone for large 150 to 200# tuna. seems that it is the same comprimise between the 2 tuna snipers. Any input would be appreciated.

    100 for tuna under 100 - 120 lbs though it can handle bigger tuna
    For big tuna over 120 lbs, 200 is better choice.

    Thanks Kil. Is it still a good caster? Would it be like comparing the sniper 40/60 to the 60/80?

    I've never casted the 100, but the 200 does a great job casting lighter 50/60gr lures.

    100 cast much farther than 200 as the 100 is longer and has lighter tip, but you can cast pretty far with 200 too.

    Just a suggestion, but I would buy the rod based upon what species you will be targeting. BD200 for Bluefin or GT, BD100 for Yellowfin. If you are fishing for multi-species, better to be over-gunned than under-gunned.

    Anyone have the BD200 in stock?

    Or a blank that can be built for me?

    Agree. Targeting large BFT on the cape. So it seems that the BD200 is the way to go. Kind of figured that before posting but nothing better than getting feedback from someone that has had hands on....................

    thx very much for that.


    You are welcome John. I did not know it, but Ksong has them too. As good as Tackle Direct is, I would talk to Kil first.
