Q&A: Rod Recommendation for Van Staal 250

Updated: Apr 19

Question:

"How would a Black Hole USA Challenger Bank 801H (8' Heavy) match up with a Van Staal 250? Or would the Challenger Bank 731H (7'3" Heavy) be a better match?


I'm going to build a spinning popper/jigging rod and want to match it with my Van Staal 250. I presently have a blackhole cape cod 450g jigging rod I have matched with an Avet HXW 5/2 raptor that I've whooped in excess of 100 bluefin, bigeye, and YFT. Love the Black Hole lightweight and incredible power."


Answer:

"Both 7'3" ad 8' Black Hole Challenger Bank H rods are good for Vs 250 reel.

Both have the same action except the length."
