Black Hole Cape Cod Special Nano popping rods are 40% stronger than the graphite models. If you like parabolic action with enough backbone, then Nano is recommended. The Nano is also good for anglers with weak backs.

Casting masterpiece

Love this rod. It is light and strong with plenty of whip. The distance it achieves with little effort is impressive. Even light poppers can travel out a long way. Good control with larger fish.
ProsLight weight but strong

Have matched this rod with a Tranx 500 HG and the combination is ideal for tuna and wahoo. Throws bombs with ease and has plenty of backbone for hard running fish.
ProsNice and light for easy throwing

Great rod

Rod loads well under heavy drag pressures and landed many 80-100# yellowfin easily. I feel the 80n is the perfect length for casting from head boats.
ProsGreat casting, powerful backbone

Looking for the right rod to pair with a 19 Stella 14000xg. Popping, pencils, maybe more, looking for a bit of versatility.
1 Answer
You will be happy with both 8ft and 7ft 6, The difference between the two is minimal slightly bigger and slight lure rating difference. You may find to like to 8ft better due to longer casts and more torque when fighting big fish due to the length and slightly more back bone to it.

I have the 86n & have landed some big GT's on it, but I think its a bit overkill for Bluefins in the 20 to 50 kg range. Would like to know a little more about about the 76n, whats the lightest weight it will cast reasonably well with say a 10000 size reel & pe 8. Or would a smaller reel suit it better. I'm interested to hear anyones thoughts.
1 Answer
The rod will be great for Bluefins. We suggest sticking with a 10000 size reel. The casting distance will be cut more due to the rod length than anything else. As for lure weight, 2 oz. is probably the low end of the range.
