definitely not an expert, but i have played with my saragosa with some poppers and was able to get good action with them. it just requires a little more cranking than the higher gear would.

do you mean that 4.9 gear ratio is not slow for popping?

Its not bad but its better than have the higher speed to jig with. Keep in mind you have to fight the fish as well and lower gear would be better to fight fish since you will get more torque. The Saltist hasn't really proven just yet but the Saragosa have been proven already, many times in Cape Cod landing Tuna in the excess of over 150lbs.

I think I'll go for the Saragosa 18000 .. the OTI G3 600g spinning for Jigging and either the Tuna Sniper 8'6" (60-80) or the OceanExtreme 7.6 (60-80) for popping .. what do you think .. ?? one rod and 2 reels .. and I'll put 80lbs green braid

uh...is that really a 600g spinning rod for popping? Seems a little heavy.:confused:

Saragosa 18000 with OTI 400 gram is a good setup.
Tuna Sniper 60-80 is a bad ass maybe you want to consider 40-60 still have a lot of back bone though. just my 2 cents.
