prototype Black Hole Surf rods

I am told 5 local surf fishermen participate in the hunt of rooster.

I will provide our prototype Black Hole Striped Bass Special rods to them so that I have chances to take video and pictures of fighting rooster using the Striped Bass Special rods.

I am too old to fish rooster walking the beach all day. :)

Weather looks very nice there in 75 degree - 70 degree while I am there.

I asked to move up the reel seat a little, but they say it is too late to change it as they ordered parts and material already  I will change it on the next order. 23 1/2 inches are not bad.

Is that 23.5" from butt cap to bottom of reel seat?

I used 2 oz Ice Cream lure (2.3 oz with hook) with 11' Black Hole Striped Bass Special 3 oz - 10 oz. 

I can fast very far with the light lure for rooster in Mexico. So it is appropriate to change the rating of the rod to 2 oz - 8 oz.

Kil, I see you changed the rigging.

Hooks better like that and casts better too, when the hook folds back against the lure body.

Methinks I am going to have to get Jigstar to get me a blank....

I used original assist hook attached the lure. Big rooster attacked the lure twice, but I misses it. I think it is because of the small hook.  So I changed the hook later.

You are going to love the light rod.  Everyone who tested the rods, just love them. :)
