Black Hole makes 250g, 350g and 450g and is developing 150g rods.
I am going down to NC again for bluefin jigging and popping tomorrow.
I plan to use light 250g Blackl Hole rod for bit bluefin.
My friend Gman (glenn) is coming too. I hope we catch some nice ones on jigs or poppers on the trip.

I am going down again tonight to fish bluefin on jigs and poppers tomorrow. As school of bluefin moved down to south, we plan to fish out of Hatteras tomorrow.
We have heavy hitters tomorrow. Sami G and Gman (Glenn) join the trip as well as John who fished with me on Saturday.
I am the only fisherman on the boat who use conventional reel as all three of them use spinners. 8*
I have been using conventional reels for all my life and I am much comfortable to use conventional reels for jigging, but I don't think Sami G or Gman take more time to land a big tuna just because they use spinning reels, like I don't take more time to land a big tuna with smaller 3/0 size reels than big 30 or 50 reels.
What it takes long to fight a big tuna is light drag fishermen use.
As long as you are capable of using heavy drags, the sizes of reels or type of reels are not issue, in my opinion.
Thai fishermen on the Royal Star proved that they can land a 100 - 150 lbs with spinning reels in 5 - 15 minutes as they were capable of using 30 lbs drag.
I'll post the report as soon as I come back from the trip.
