Does anybody have input on the Black Hole Magic Eye 804S popping rod? I was in a shop that had one and I couldn't seem to leave it alone, kept going back and pulling on it.
I'm thinking about using this for local YT and tuna under 60lbs, let me know your thoughts, it's rated 70-110 gram and I'd most likely run 50-60 braid on it. Thanks so much!

Yes ,for school of tuna upto 70lb + is a great popping rod.
Very parabolic action if you like that kind of rods.

I had mine on my last 10 day trip on the RP a few weeks ago and ended up using it to cast colt snipers. I caught 14 yellowfin 20 to 55lbs. Paired with a Van Staal spinner. Great Rod!!!

One of my all-time favourite rods, extremely versatile. Will cast a 20 gram lure right up to a 100 gram, no issues. Sweet spot is somewhere around 60-70. I paired mine with a 6000 saragosa loaded with 30 lb Yo Zuri braid, have taken some 6 foot tarpon, tuna up to 50 lbs, and a ridiculous amount of large dolphin with it.
