I'm hoping to get it finished this week and on tuna in Venice by mid September with My Stella 18000 bolted to it....

I'll post picture when its all done.

Also have been looking at the Black Hole blanks that MudHole is now carrying for rod builders...

I will say this. I NOW understand why top end quality rods cost so much made by a quality and well known Rod Craftsman. And its not because they are making money hands over foot to build it...
After going and buying the Blank, the top quality Rod guides, the Eva foam, the quality reel seat, rod butt, string, glue etc... I have about $300 tied up in it JUST IN PARTS.

ksong Choosing a jigging rod is like choosing a car.
You choose a car based on your budget and your taste.
I am sure you are not going to choose a new car without any history.
There are many new brand rods by OEM from China and they promote heavily even they never fished with the rods.

OTI rods have been around and many fishermen actually fish with the rods.

llengerbank731Hbigeye2_zps9ojxgdow.jpg[/IMG][/URL]Our Black Hole rods are same. We test our rods intensively and extensively for years.
Here is a pictures.

350 lb giant with BH Cape Cod Special 450g spinning


760 lb giant with custom BH Cape Cod Special 450g rod


with BH Cape Cod Special 350g rod


260 lb yft with BH Cape Cod Special 250g rod


170 lb yft with BH Cape Cod Special 150g rod


150 lb halibut with BH Cape Cod Special 80g rod.



There are some advantage of using longer jigging rods, especially on party boats.
I can recommend C7'3" Black Hole Challenger Bank 731H model.
The rod is mere 10 oz, but has enough backbone and power.
Here are big bigeye caught with the rod.

spurgersalty Thanks, Ernest, for the input.
I already have 2 of their rods(tuna sniper and ocean extreme popper), was just looking at a custom build.
As it stands, I'll be having the new rod built with one of their fathom blade jigging blanks, 5'4", 80-120lbs.

The captain on our most recent Venice trip was highly impressed with their ocean extreme popping rod that I let him test drive. He used it multiple time during the trip, for the heck of it.

Ernest OTI is good people. I love their rods. Buy with confidence.

Do you have a dealer in the Beaumont area?
