We are informed they ship the rods and blanks by the end of April.

Normally they ship them by boats. But we'd like to get some of them by air as many anglers are waiting for the rods and blanks.

If we get them by air, the rods and blanks will be hear in early May and it takes about a month to get them by boat. But air shipping is very expensive.

We'd like to know how many anglers want to buy the rods and blanks so that we decide how many rods and blanks we get them by air. 

We might take pre-order.

Kil,

 

What are the specs on this rod?  How does it differ from the Cape Cod Nano, East Coast Special or Striper Surf?

 

Thanks

Striped Bass Special surf rods have thinner diameters and lighter.

It seems these rods have more fast action than other models of Black Hole surf rods.

 

10' and 11' Black Hole Striper rods 3/4 oz - 4oz, 1 oz - 6 oz and 2 oz - 8 oz

I would preorder a 10’ 3/4-4

I talked with Jane. She objects to take preorder as she said customers are calling and calling again until they get their rods. 

I will put you on the list and we let you know as soon as they come.

I will order very limited quantities of rods by shipping. They will arrive at early May. The main shipment t arrive at late may or early June 

I don't doubt these rods will be very popular like Suzuki rods.

I am in Florida to make the final test the Black Hole Striped Bass Special for tarpon and drum.  I plan to visit NC for big drum from the surf on the way up.

I finally got hit by tarpon 6 times, but without hookups.

I think it was because I used single hooks instead of treble hooks.  After I lost a lure with treble hooks to exposed rocks at night, I decided to use single hooks.

I am going to use 11' Black Hole Striped Bass Special 3/4 oz - 4 oz rod tonight as the lures are small and light. ( tarpon here prefer smaller lures.).
