Hi Ksong —thank you so very much for answering all of my questions.  That was very helpful.

You are welcome. 

I cast 1  1/2 oz - 2 oz lures for tarpon using 10' Black Hole Striped Bass Special 3/4 oz - 4 oz rod this weekend. 

I will give report after fishing.

Hi Ksong,

Many kind thanks in advance.

I am very interested to hear your review of this rod with lighter lures.

If possible, please test cast 3/4 to 1 to 1 1/4 oz lures as this will be the most interesting since we already know the heavier lures are fine.

Again thank you

Rob

I will. I drive to Florida this morning.  On the way down, I will fish big drum on a boat out of Virginia Beach and test the 10' Black Hole Striped Bass Special rod as bid drum show up in Virginia water. It is not like to fish from the surf, but I like to see the action of the rod for big drum.

Hi Ksong--sounds great!  Good luck out there fishing the new Striped Bass 10" 3/4-4oz rod....give it a good work out.  Will wait to hear your field testing results.

I cast 2oz Yozuri Mac Darter 165 using 11' Black Hole Striped Bass Special 3/4 oz - 4oz lord. It cast beautifully. 

 

They say they ship the first batch rods  by air tomorrow. We should get them next week.

Hey Ksong, these rods have my attention. I prefer a smaller diameter blank. I might just bite on one of these rods.

 

Im interested in the 3/4-4. I’m assuming the tip on the 11 footer 3/4-4 is slightly softer than the 10 ft rod of the same rating. What do you think?

I just cast 3/4 oz Ice Cream lure using 10' Black Hole Striped Bass Soecial 3/4oz - 4 oz rod. To my surprise casting  is great. 

I hope someone can take video of my casting.

Casting 3/4 oz Ice Cream lure using 10' Black Hole Striped Bass Special 3/4 oz - 4 oz rod.

The low rating of 3/4 oz is right.

Casting 1 oz Yozuri Mac Darter using 10' Black Hole Striped Bass Special 3/4 oz - 4 oz rod.

So the 10' rod is good for casting 3/4 oz - 4 oz as listed.
