I am planning to get a custom spinning rod for casting poppers.

Which rod blank would you suggest?
Most likely the reel will be Daiwa Saltiga Z6500H Dogfight or Accurate Twin Spin 30.
I am planning to load the reel with 60 or 80# Jerry Brown Line one hollow spectra.

Hey TJ,

I'm looking at a GUSA blank. I have a Mon Mag currently and it really is light, but has a ton of backbone.

It was great in handling my #100 + on the Halloween trip, just needed more drag from the reel! LOL

If I don't go with that blank, I'll look at GUSA in the 6'6" 30-60 lb. range.

Let me know what you decide.

Tom,

At this moment I am still try to keep my option open.
I like the GUSA blank, but i think it's a little to fast for Rue to handle.
Something slower action like KENCOR, SEEKER new blanks OR other slow rated blanks.

What reel you have on the GUSA?
Anyway, Bret and I will be at BPS this afternoon, care to joint us?

I wish I would have seen this earlier and I would have gone.

I'm finishing up Mother's Day stuff!

On my MonMag, I have that 700TE that everyone hates!

I'll probably sell that rig and work on the spinner/topwater rig before my next trip.

The spinners I've made Rick have been on the United version of the MonMag 70. They have a fast action but are aren't as fast as my 700H. They also have a GUSA SW70XH / United URS70XH with a mod-fast action that's rated 30-60# like the MonMag.

BTW, I'm suppose to get the a Predator blank next week for Rick's next spinner.
