    I am going to purchase the following spinning rod for small tuna, mahi, surface irons/poppers..... Thinking about a Shimano Twin Power 8000HG or the 6000HG as my wallet will not allow a Stella at this time :eek: Any help will be greatly appreciated. Tight lines :)

    Rod: OTI -3101-70S ocean xtream 7' popping rod

    Rod weight 10.5oz

    Line weight 40lb-60lb

    8000 for line capacity.. the rod will hold a big tuna, if you have a good reel and the drag is set correctly.

    The Twin Power or the Stradic will do fine.
