Here are pictures of actions of Black Hole giant for 500 lb giant in Cape Cod.
Scott McCall fought the giant and landed in 40 minutes using upto 50 lb drag. 
 
Black Hole Giant rods were tested for at least 100 giant in 600 lb - 1000 lb last two years.
Jennifer and Scott MacCall  alone caught/released about 50 giant using custom Black Hole Giant in 2013 and 2014. 
 
Scott loves to use heavy drag and he used drag upto 75 lb and the rods performed beautifully.  
We found the best way to build the rods for giant for those who use heavy 70 plus lb drag is to use normal guides with acid wrapping. 
The acid wrapped rod definitely reduce rod twisting  on heavy pressure of big giant. 
Some think the rod is OK when building rods with right spine. But we observed that rods twist a lot on heavy pressure of giant even with right spine.
 
We also found the rods twist more with high positioned roller guides which could break rods with 70 plus lb drag as Black Hole Giant blanks are very thin. the 6' Black Hole Giant blank weighs only 10.5 oz. 
 
Based on our findings, it is our recommendation to use acid wrapping with normal guides if you want to target giant using 60 plus lb drag.
If you want to use roller guides, the max drag should be about 55 lb. 
We are going to introduce thicker Black Hole Giant just for heavy roller guides.
