Bought a factory rgp terminator, was on the Shogun first trip out after shutdown hooked and landed 4 60-100lb. Bluefin on this rod using a Torque 40nld2 with 80lb. Braid and 80lb. Blackwater topshot.(sinker rig) This rod DESTROYED this fish. Last Bluefin I cranked the drag down railed fish right to the boat. Next day ordered a custom one Sold this rod to a guy on BD and he went out on the Tribute and DESTROYED two bluefin well over 100lbs. Do not under estimate this rods Power! It a Big Bluefin killer! So light and Powerful.Anyone have experience fishing a gp terminator at #80 I am leaning towards a gp.
Steven, welcome to the addiction! Your next set up should be a 76 Viper and that will pretty much cover local fishing.
A 80-130 rail rod with the gp's blank design. That would be an interesting rod, probably very light too!Ended up adding a 76 predator to the growing list of GP rods. I think next is a Viper to cover the top end of the lineup. maybe we will be graced with 80-130 gp rod soon?
I think the viper is the heaviest I want to go for now... I was thinking a second jig stick like a ce 90monster or maybe a gp 90xf .This is a UC DEVIANT For Andre matching the viper I did for him last year, features all alps/Batson components centra lock reel seat a alps titanium heavy HXN Guides with Chameleon rings.. also a salty dawg rail guard grip topped off with a...www.bdoutdoors.com
