I am leaving Korea today and arrive at NJ around 10:00 pm on Wed.

I plan to go to Long Island for hot striper jigging using the 8' Black Hole Suzuki Light rod on Thursday.

I will post pictures and videos of the action.

I went togging in RI as I heard it is mob scene on party boats for striper jigging. The 8' Black Hole Suzuki Light rod is two light for togging, but I tried. Surprisingly the light rod showed backbone for big tog in 5-7 lb. The tip is very sensitive.

I'd say it isn't too light then, I was catching the same size fish last weekend with a rod rated to 1/2 oz.  This is the rod you dead lifted a milk jug with right?

I’d like to check this out, pretty close to wha I’m looking for for the spring. 

 

Does black hole go to the New England boat show in Boston, mid February I think. If so, any chance these will be there?

We don't attend the NE Boat show.

We attend New England Saltwater Expo in Providence in March 2019.

I plan to go on a party boat in Long Island to test the 8' Suzuki Light rod for striper on jigs tomorrow. I heard it is mob scene on party boats.  I hope bad weather scares some anglers tomorrow. :)

I am on a party boat in Captree in Long Island to test the new 8' Suzuki Light rod for striper. I choose bad weather as I know striper bite well on east wind and it could scares off some anglers so that I can cast around. :)

Kil, you lead a very interesting life. The "sacrifices" that you make to bring we anglers better gear is much appreciated.

In addition to test rod and reel, I am testing West Coast Tady jigs on this trip.

What reel this trip?

After testing the 8' Black Hole Suzuki rods for various species, I can say the rods are ready  for other anglers.  You can catch fluke, albie, blue, striper, snook, decent sized drum or even blackfish from the shore or on the boat.

The rods will be here by the end of Feb 2019 for the March shows.
