Jewjitzu posted a topic in Main ForumStopped by tackle world today. Looked at their selection, Shogun, black demon, black widow, and the Dark Knight. The Dark Knight was the closest in weight, action, and backbone. Infact, if blind folded, I would have a hard time telling the two apart. That being said, the challenger 7’3m is rated 20-25lbs and the Dark Knight 7’2 is rated 30-65lbs. I didn’t have my challenger with me to compare on the spot. I looked at mine when i got it. So I didn’t pick it up as I’ve wanted a second. Has anyone handled a Dark Knight or fished it? Is it really a 30-65lb rod or is this greatly exaggerated. I can’t imagine a 30-65 being advertise as an all around inshore including fluke. Seems like a great tog rod tho.
Want to trade my Ocea Jigger 1500PG (never been fished) for a brand new Blackhole Challenger 7'3M conventional (non spiral). Reel has never been fished, has original box. Has a new trinidad handle with white knob added, original handle with black knob is of course included. 30lb jbraid spooled completey. Looking for a deal in Queens/ Nassau
Jewjitzu posted a topic in Main ForumAs the the title states, who has one and how do you fish it? I'm curious, as a learning experience, as to how people are setting it up for fluke, tog and striped bass. Especially if you're from the cape or long island, montauk, jersey... What test braid are you using for each specific species. What are you finding it can handle real world in terms of sinker weight, diamond jigs... I appreciate Kil's perspective, but he also may be fishing a different technique and I'd like to know how it's working out for others.
