Hi all, as per title. I see some posts and marketing suggeting its s dedicated stickbait rod BUT then I see references to it being used for popping...
Anyone have experience with these rods?
Any feedback would be appreciated as I'm looking at a second hand one up for sale locally.
Cheers Pete

I own a Race point 200 and a 150, I'm also selling a Race Point 200. I am certainly no expert on popping and throwing stick baits, but I'm learning. IMO 200 is for Poppers very fast action(stiff tip) but bends nicely for fighting Big Tuna 80-150lbs. and up to 200lbs. The 150 IMO would be what you want for Poppers and stick baits for tuna 50-120 and up to 150. 150 is very parabolic. Both are Awesome Rods.

Thanks for your response and input Greg.
There's one come up for sale on my local forum and I'm tempted but don't use poppers, also don't really have a handle on the value of a second hand one.
