I'm looking for a new partyboat rod for East Coast deep water fluke and blackfishing. I like the Tri Flex Graphite Inshore TFX7030 C 3/4 - 3, or the TFX7030 CT 3-6. What is the difference, does the CT have more backbone or lifting power, I would probably be using normally 4 to 8 ounces of lead to hold bottom. Not the same as casting as you are just dropping straight down. I don't want to go to heavy as I need to feel the bite and I also have a heavier Lamiglas for even stronger currents. I was hoping to use 30lb braid on a Shimano calcutta 400 or 700, or maybe a Saltist. Any suggestions on Rod and matching reel would be greatly appreciated.
