    I have a custom BTG90J and an older 90J but haven't seen a GT90J. The BTG is a solid 40 even 50 lbs jig stick with a lot of lift and a little faster tip for med to large surface jigs. The older 90J I have is solid 40 lbs stick with a little softer tip compared to the BTG. I don't own but I've also tested the new factory grafighter version which felt a little lighter maybe a 30 lbs stick.

    Thanks for the great Info! One question, how many surface iron setups do you take on a full day boat ?

    First question is, where are you going to keep it? I keep all my rods and reels inside the house, that makes 9 footers difficult.

    Second is how big are you? I stand 5'9" 155lbs and can't swing a 9 footer all day. Suggest you try an 8 footer like the Calstar 800H or U.C. 800 Del Mar. They cast pretty well with a Trinidad 20 old gold series if you can find one, Okuma Cortez 12 if on a budget. Have a great time with whatever surface Iron rod you end up with!

    I have a wall mount so it’s easy to store. I’m a 5’3 pro mma fighter so I can cast anything all day. I do in fact have a gold trini20. Also got a trini16 that I have on a seeker g6485. It’s 8 1/2 so gonna step up a lil to a 9. Thanks for the info!

    Or you could buy all three, That's what I did with the 800 Calstar and the UC. I bought them both.
