Thank you all for the advice.  You've been a big help.

With the above said some of the newer rods (mostly jigging type) that are rated for spectra lines have a very different rating. I have no idea how in the world they know what topshot I will be using and their rods are WAY over rated. I have seen these types of rods rated to fish 80lb spectra that I think fishing 30-40lb topshots would bottom them out.

Yes, I have one of those rods, a thin whippy thing rated for 65-200 lbs (really Huh? Huh? Huh?

me too, bought 2 of these, 1 in 2011 and 1 in 2012, because that is what they have here. nowadays i use them as a 30 lb outfit.

That's interesting; a jigging rod for the beach?
Yeah quite a few guys are using them now, I've seen them in vids for grander bluefin as well. I would like one with a 950ss tank on it. I got to fight a fish on one on a pier, and it was a lot of fun honestly
