Kil, I purchased the rod last year and can say that it has quickly become one of my favorites. My first blackfish trip was in 1976 on the Captain Robbins out of Sea Isle City NJ and I have been hooked ever since. Needless to say, I have used many different rods over the years. Now I only bring the Black Hole Challenger Bank731M rod when I fish.
It's light weight, so it makes standing at the rail in any sea condition a joy. Flexible sensitive action at the tip signals the slightest sniff from a tog, and it's strong enough to use 12 ounces of lead if there is a ripping current. Recently I have recommended many of my charter customers to your website after they have seen the Black Hole rod in action. Most guys ask "why are the guides crooked", and I explain that it is a spiral rap best explained at your site.
I am posting a few photos from my recent trips on 11/27 and 12/5. We fish out of Forked River NJ
