9'6" economic version of Black Hole rod for big striper
This striper could be the biggest on the trip and we got striper upto 35 lb. But unfortunately we lost the fish due to tangle with other boat. The light rod is designed for 1/2 oz - 2 oz, but I cast 3 oz Doc very comfortably. This 8.7 oz rod will be introduced by the end of 2017.
action of 9'6" prototype Black Hole rod for striper
The light rod weighs only 8.7 oz. It is designed for small game fish like suzuki, but I wanted to test the rod big striper. I landed about 10 striper in 20 lb - 35 lb range on heavy drag. Jeff landed the striper in no time on heavy drag. This is economic version.
machine test of light 9'6" Black Hole Suzuki Special rod
we did machine test for light 9'6" economic version of Black Hole rod today. The rod survived 9.76 kg (21.7 lb). We could go further, but the rod tip touched the bottom. I think 21. 7 lb is good enough for the the light rod for striper, snook or albies or drum.
