    Hey guys! First time post on 360... This rod is built on an Ocean Tackle International 8'6" 2 piece 40/60 Tuna Sniper blank. It's going to be used for tarpon fishing out of South Padre. It has a Fuji graphite gimbal, ribbed x-grips for the lower grips, an Alps window seat, hypalon foregrip, and silver matagi trim rings. The colors are just black and silver. The tribal tarpon decal is a waterslide I had custom made from Decal Connection. The guides are Fuji titanium coated SIC's. This was my first experience with OTI & I really like this blank. It feels really solid and the fit for the two pieces feels perfect. It's mailing out on monday, so hopefully it's not too late to catch the last bit of the tarpon run!

    CoastalBent - nice job on that rod! You've got me thinking... if it's not too much trouble can you give us the reel seat size, trim ring size and the size of each of the guides. Thnx.
