    Daiko sts 902h. Max drag is 10kg and a 35-120g casting weight. for the next few years i will be in the gulf of mexico only. casting for tuna.I casted with it but no hookups so far. it seems very long but not cumbersome. i would be fishing on private boats always. would this rod be best or should i get an oti 50lb tuna sniper?
    also i want a stella 10000sw w/ pe6 to be used with it.

    If funds wasn't an issue, the tuna sniper would be a better all around rod IMO.

    honestly andrew, if you are unhappy with the rod...since I seen you post it for sale a few times, just sell it and get something you will be happy with. Other than that idea maybe you just have to fish the daiko a little more.
