Black Hole Inshore rods
Posted 21 February 2012 - 12:28 PM
They have tons of inshore and freshwater rods and I tested one 7' graphite inshore rod extensively last year from fluke to cod.
The characteristic of the rod is very similar to GLoomis inshore rods which were my favorite over 20 years. light, crispy, precise, thin, but stiff and strong.
Here are pictures of my catches with the 5 oz rod last season.
N.S plans to introduce their inshore/freshwater rods in the US. They will have a booth at ICAST Show in Orlando for the first step this year.

All three rods above are graphite. If you like crispy and precise action of Gloomis inshore rods, you'll like the Black Hole graphite inshore rods.
Here is a test video of 7' Black Hole inshore rod for cod jigging. This 7' rod rated upto 20 lbs is not for cod jigging, but it is just for test purpose.

We used live bunker which Scott and Anthony caught using casting net in the morning. I can not say they are right rods for striped bass, but it was fun and pleasant to use such light rods for striped bass.
Fishing was good and we had constant action.
And also JM Arrester 630 was tested on the trip. We caught several bass upto 25 - 30 lb on the reel and I am very pleased with the performance of the reel. The reel can compete with any high-end bait casting reel.

Possible yes,practical no.For one a spinning rod would be preferable and two you would want a much stiffer rod for snagging. As Kil said these rods were designed for a different fishery but for fisherman that love light tackle for bigger fish these rods will stand up to the test.
Would you say it's possible to use it as a bunker snagging rod for stripers?
