These new lines are taking OTI to the next level in value and quality.  They are lighter, stronger, and faster in taper for the longest possible casting distance and more control boat side. Combining the latest technology in blank material and components with a classic, streamlined look, they're less bulky with the new size 40 stripper guide and a length that gives you the extra casting distance, but with a more balanced feel.

casts far
April 22, 2016
I have used it for casting Halco Max 130 lures. Used for overnight tuna trips out of Galveston, TX. These lures may be a little light for this rod, but I am still able to cast them pretty far even underhanded
Prosable to make long casts because of the length of the rod: 8' very sturdy rod;
Consi feel this rod is a bit too heavy. casting all night took a toll on my shoulders. After my first fishing trip I compared it to other tuna popping rods in it's class and this one seemed to be the heavier than most. For this reason I am only give it 4 stars.

What a rod!
July 28, 2015
I needed a rod to fish for tuna, marlin, amberjack, snapper, etc... in the Gulf off the Midnight Lump and near the offshore rigs. I looked at a lot of rods in this class from every brand listed on TD. This really fit the bill and it doesn't disappoint. Extremely well made and looks great. 8' length was perfect for me - enough to cast popping plugs using heavy duty spin gear 80-100 yards from the boat, but still enough backbone to get the job done. This particular model is slightly more versatile and sensitive than the heavy weight version from OTI in my opinion. But this is a big benefit for anyone who wants versatility and practicality in a rod... I also fish stripers back east, and this rod would easily serve for that species from both boat and jetty inlet. So great value. Its not just a specialty rod, but if tuna is what you are after...it is the goto choice.
ProsVersatile, well built, excellent action for a rod with solid backbone.
ConsNone

A severe stick for my sever Stella SW20000PG. So you want a spinning outfit...Bad ass....
ProsBeautifully executed. A two piece rod that does not seem like a two piece rod. You could bring anything to the boat with this rod.........
ConsExspensive, The rod butt hypalon is not as beefy as a convention reel stick. No hook saver. Due to the length of this rod, if you hook something large be prepared for a work out.

Tuna Popping Rod
September 3, 2012
Exceptional reputation and quality is validated. It is a bit stiff to throw 70-90g. stick baits as it does not load up while casting, in my opinion. I have not hooked up with it yet but am buying a lighter line-weight rod that will give me more distance with the weights referenced. I target Gulf of Mexico tuna, cobia, dolphin and wahoo and this rod is more than ample to handle the typical fish found offshore.
ProsNice components, nice fabric rod case, two piece for traveling.
Consa bit stiff for throwing average weight poppers and stick baits.
