Just got my newest rod and reel setup.
I have been needing something to throw lures, I have all the jigging and live bait stuff covered. I have been looking into several different popping rods, but did not want anything super long or heavy.

My brother and good friend have the black hole magic eye torque jigging rod and they have been impressive little sticks. I discovered that they make the same rod in more of a popping style. So I placed my order, about a week and a half from Korea and my new rod was here.
It is 7'9" and has a ton of backbone while being very light. Rated to 125g.

It is paired with a Saragosa swa 8000.
Ordering 40lb. X8 now.

I played around with the rod in a field the other day with a 5k sustain and .5oz lure. I was very impressed.

Nice set up. You should be able to sling up to 4 oz with that. Those Black Hole rods are real nice. I'd recommend you add a Halco Roosta Popper to your lineup if you don't already have some. They cast like bullets. AJ's positively eat them up.

Thanks bmac.

I really do like the Black Hole rods. I currently have quite a few and all have impressed me so far.
