    Solid rod, plan to use with Saragosa for tuna this season. Tons of good reviews and this thing is solid.

    60-80lb Model for BFT

    Posted by Nathan on Jun 14th 2022

    Used 60-80lb model for local bluefin trip in San Diego, CA. Casted a Shimano Pencil and caught a 80lb Bluefin that I was fighting for 30mins. I think the blank itself is very stiff.

    Posted by Chris on Feb 25th 2022

    this rod is great for the price. the blank flexes enough to relive pressure off of you. unfortunately my penn spinfisher 9500 did not fit in the reel seat

    OTI TS2 8' 60-80

    Posted by Curtis on Jan 3rd 2022

    I purchased this rod to use for throwing stick baits at Yellowfin Tuna off of the local head boats. There isn't much information about this rod online so I did a little testing and was able to lift a 20 lb. plate with ease and have no doubt it will lift more than that considering how beefy this rod is. The rod is stiffer than I normally like but it does cast lure far, you just have to put a lot of strength into your casts.

    Great Value

    Posted by John on Nov 9th 2021

    Has a good back bone. I wished the tip was a bit softer. Have not used it in the field yet, but feels and looks promising.

    Quality Popping rod at a great price

    Posted by Gusnyny on Apr 28th 2021

    This review is only a first impression of the OTI-TS286080 TS2. This rod feels a little stiff at first but it is rated for heavier poppers. Premium guides and reel seat and the blank just looks and feels bulletproof. The butt connection is solid. The rod is light for what it's rated for so can be fished all day. Hope this helps

    My brother had one setup with an Avet that I used on a Texas Gulf tuna trip. Caught over a dozen black fin. Liked the rod so I bought one for myself.
