the 10ft has Fuji micro the 9.6 has bigger guides I think but the 10ft I got has been amazing,,,,, casting distance great,,weight is like 7.2oz I got it because of the specs and g Loomis couldn't tell me the weight of there surf rod,,,,so most happy with the susuki,,,,light tip for small fish and back bone for bigger fish  Grin

Thanks for the info Benni!
What you catchin with it?
I'll use it mostly for surf perch but have been thinking about targeting stripers.
Can't decide between the 10 or 9.5.

Why not use this for salmon trolling?   I love long, whippy rods for taking up the slack on a down rigger hit.
You could. Salmon trolling rods or salmon mooching rods are traditionally very soft.

quite a few Salmon/Steelhead techniques (other than trolling) require Mod/Fast actions
should be sweet for Carp & MANY other F/W specialty applications, as well
you should figure out each blank's "Test Curve" rating, to help the Euros & Carpys, everywhere, better understand the action of each rod


9'6" Black Hole Suzuki rod.  $195

10'2" Black Hole Suzuki rod $215

9'6" Black Hole Suzuki blank $95

19'2" Black Hole Suzuki blank $98


is that 19-footer 1-pc or 2-pc?  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

VS VR50 may be a good choice?

Not a fan of spinning reels. Could that 10’ blank be built to use a conventional reel? Looking for a ten foot rod for traveling. Would it take too many guides to be practical for that application? Thanks

I'm in freshwater and been using  8lb,,mono,,0.009in,,sunline,,,,i have got a 4lb brook,,, 6lb hybrid,,,28in carp,,no problem I use light drag not to pull a hook Cheesy if you use heavy drag the 9'6" is a much stronger rod and if you go with spit grips it's lighter than spec? Maybe 8oz to 9oz range,, ask ksong

The guides are non-Fuji SIC guides.

Thanks for the info and thoughts all.

I went to order the 9.5 and they're out.
Can you let me know who might have some in stock or when they'll be available.

Thanks!

The rods are out of stock and we expect them by the end of June or early July.
But we have blanks in stock.
