Can anyone share some insight into the difference between the RCJB84XH and the RCTB66H? For larger model tuna which one is preferred? Will be using it for large flat fallls, live bait (macs), and using it to hang off the kite line... thanks!
Larger grade Tuna 150 and up go with the RCTB70XXH-CG..100-150 lb tuna RCJB84XXH, 60-100 lb tuna RCJB84XH-CG, 20-60 lb tuna/Yellow Tail RCJB84H-CG.. Just my opinion.. i have fished them all..
Steve, you are going to want the XXH, I think Charkbait and M&M both have them.Where, in San Diego, can I bend these two blanks, RCJB84 XH and XXH?
Thinking hard about a new one to replace an older model Seeker Black Steel that I built on a CTSF60XH blank. Use it with an Accurate BX2-600N, 80 lb spectra and short 20-25 yard 60 lb topshots, Lupe, shark population permitting.
Have you put this blank to use for deep dropping?I recently wrapped an RCJB 84xxh for 60lb bait/flat falls and think it would yoyo good also. Great stick, I think I will also use it for grouper and tilefish in the Atlantic.
To me the 90 blanks feel a little stiffer than the corresponding 84 series, not sure if that's because the shutoff point is 6" closer to the tip or not.Have you put this blank to use for deep dropping?
Does anyone have any experience with the 90xh or xxh versions?
Mainly looking to know if those specific blanks fight higher then the 84. I don't have a spot near to me that has them to pull on and don't wanna go nuts if it's not gonna fit the bill. Any help is greatly appreciated as always and sorry to be the necromancer haha
Awesome! Thanks Hec!!
Would you say it could be pushed a little bit more or is that the max?
Perfect! Exactly what I was looking for! Thank you very much, I appreciate it!!I honestly think it can probably do 30lb, but I only have a 10lb and a 25lb dumbell, and i didnt want to over do it.
I think it is a solid 80lb rod, or a light 100lb rod when super necessary, but I would use it for 60-80lb instead, and switch to something else for 100lb.
