Hi guys. I am looking at building a couple trolling rods for use in South Florida and San Diego. These will be paired with some old Penn International 30TW's and Senator 114H's. The target species will be Yellowfin, Dorado, Sailfish, and Wahoo in Florida and Yellowfin, Dorado, and Albecores -0) in San Diego. I was thinking of using Rainshadow and Alps equipment as they have done me right in my first couple of builds. Here is what I am thinking.... Blank: Either the FSU60H, FSU60XH or RCTB60H (Any advice on which would be a better blank for my application?) FSU60H: Gloss Black 6'0" 1 30-50lb. N/A 0.927 10.5/ 12.0* M H 11.4oz. All purpose SW stand up/SW trolling/Boat Rod *ALPS Roller Top FSU60XH: Gloss Black 6'0" 1 50-80lb. N/A 0.940 11.5 / 13.0* M XH 13.9oz. All purpose SW stand up/SW trolling/Boat Rod *ALPS Roller Top RCTB60H: Clear Gloss 6'0" 1 40-80lb. N/A 0.895 12.5 / 14.0* XF H 11.2oz. SW Tuna trolling blank *ALPS Roller Top Guides: Alps XBXNLG guides with a Alps roller top for the tip top. Will these guides hold up to trolling? Rear Grip: Either a slick 10" or 12". I like the idea of a 12" to give the reel some additional spacing from butt of the real. Any advice on why not to go with the 12"? Reel Seat: Alps Centra Lock Foregrip: 14" EVA with the non-X shrink wrap Gimbal: Instead of an aluminam gimbal, I was thinking of using Alps rubber gimbal with the grooves in it. Any advice on the gimbal would also be appreciated. Thanks!
