Just dropping a note as a "newbie" saying HELLO to everyone!
I took the plunge and purchased the BL 7030C to use on Blackfish (Tautog). Regrettably, I winterized the boat for the season before getting a chance to "wet" the rod and see how it performs. I see it's a popular rod for these fish.
But will break it out next year before the blackfish season closes here in Long Island Sound (CT).
I'm also looking to get a conventional rod to use for Striped Bass. It will be used for live lining and chunking.
Look forward to hear from you experts!
