New 8' one-piece tuna popping rod

For traveling anglers by air, two-piece popping rods are must.
But if you travel by car, one-piece popping rod is better as the joint is always weak point.

We introduce light, but powerful 8' Black Hole Challenger Bank 801H popping rods which can handle big tuna
The blank weighs 6.1 oz and the rod weighs mere 10.2 oz.
Isn't it incredible that you can land tuna in100 - 150 lb with 10 oz popping rod ?
The retail price is $380 and it comes with one year full warranty.

Here are pictures of fighting 170 - 180 lb yft in Mexico using 7'3" Black Hole Challenger Bank 731H spinning rod.
we released the tuna. It is much bigger than the tuna in the picture.

I have seen so many two-piece popping rod got broken while fighting big fish like tuna.
I'd rather have one-piece rods if possible when I target big fish.
The joint is the weak point no matter what others claim.

The other advantage of one-piece popping rod is you get much lighter rods as you have to make thick for two-piece rods for the same strength
The 8' Black Hole Challenger Bank spinning rod weighs only 10.3 oz. There is no two-piece popping rods with such a light weight and handle 100 lb - 150 lb tuna.

dspencer is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
One piece rods are superior to two piece in weight. A properly build 2 piece will hold up but the two pieces need to be thicker. I see this the same as a flipping stick.

One piece is lighter. Two piece is more convenient.

We are in New England Saltwater Expo in RI.
Tuna and striped bass are big thing here.
Obviously, the 8' Challenger Bank H popping rods are very popular at the show.
The rod weighs about 10 oz and can handle 100 - 200 lb tuna. The price of the rod is only $380. I know this rod will be a hot item at Fred Hall Show in Long Beach, CA next week.
