    ok im heading down to florida in a week and my buddy says the wrecks are on fire atm. and he has his gorilla 12 spooled up with 130 hollow core and i asked him what rod he has it on. well he has it on the heaviest trevala. for a reel that can fish that much drag you would think you would need a better rod...

    Any ideas????

    maybe he likes the action of the trevala rod. tj has the same reel and his is mounted on a 600 gram ocean tackle international rod. by the way the trevala rod was one of the main reasons we formed oti. we thought that we could make a better rod to jig with that we liked the action on with better hardware.....rick

    2nd vote for 600g OTI. TJ's setup is the first time I saw Gorilla 12.... That is an awesome setup! Light enough to jig with all day and still handle 30lbs! (if he can!;)) With that reel, would be a perfect cow jigging and heavy bottom fishing setup IMO that could probably handle trolling duties too, and OTI service can't be beat...
