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.

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.

Excellent rod, used in Panama for big yellow fin tuna, have the 8' and 8'6" the shorter rod was better for playing the bigger fish, and the longer was great for casting distance

very good all through action and a very powerful rod when you want to give the fish some welly

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 Answers
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.
