I have the funds to get me a nice rod to paired it with the mak15 Sea right now Im using a Phenix Axis 801H 20-60 with the reel and I liked the pair so far but the rod is kind of "thick", from the foregrip to the tip and I would like something with more bend on the tip and I really not fan of 8ft rods for Panga use, so a 7ft would be better for me. so, I have my eye put on a PCH rod since some time, the flagship rod from Okuma, so, pretty sure it would be perfect marriage to my mak15 SEa, both rod & reel have gunsmoke aluminum tones. but the rod building devil in my left ear is telling me to build me one from the scratch instead of going factory rod, that little demon is kind of winning the battle vs the one that tells me you are just two clicks away from a new tech rod. soooo, Im insterested on the PCH 701HX versus Rainshadow RCJB84XH PCH is 24 ton graphite with tip reinforced 3x (something like that) rainshadow is composite (rx6 graphite / glass tip) so, most of you know the kind of fishing I do, light trolling, deep jigging, bait fishing (not much livebait), and irons for YT, this rod mostly will be used for light trolling, heavy irons and ocasional live bait. I know there are tons of better blank out there (like blackholes, UC, seeker, etc) but no much funds for get me one of those, limit for my build with accesories is the same cost of the factory PCH rod which is $200, if I can build it for less the better. which option do you recommend, go for the new tech on the PCH rods or build one on the rainshadow blank?
