Mark, I recently went on my first long range 4-day fishing trip on the Searcher on July 16-20, 2014. I had a custom rod built by SATO Custom Rods (Seeker 6480 blank, deckhand style with twin turk's heads and cord wrapped handle).I had an opportunity to "break-in" the rod in by catching my first blue fin tuna of the year which turned out to be an 85.5lbs "beast." I used an Avet HXJ Black 2 speed (purchased from Charkbait)with 85lbs Toro Tamer Hollow braid, 40lbs Izorline mono & 35lbs Backwater Fluro. Furthermore, it turned out to be the "jackpot Winner." I can't wait until next month trip....You can view photos on Searcher Sportfishing.com
Congratulations on the success. What a wonderful season we are enjoying! Certainly the best fishing I've seen in 30 years.
