I am a mate on a NJ charter boat , and had my personal best tuna trip this year using the heavy action jigging rod, I brought to the boat 11 yellow fin tuna from 80-100 pounds.
These rods are very powerful and the jigging action you get drive the tuna wild!!! These are quality rods and the price is right!

great rod. great price
i have the medium heavy version of this rod. the biggest fish to date i have caught on this rod is a 20lb stripper . it isnt the biggest of fish but a fun fight. also caught some slammer blue fish.. i can see this rod can handle fish a lot bigger also. the only thing i do not like is due to the end of this rod flarring out it doesnt fit in the pole holders on a boat.. could get annoying . other wise i enjoy it. i have use it for fluke fishing , blue fish, sea bass and strippers so far. i cant wait to try and jig for mahi mahi and small albacore.

Over rated, but a nice pole
I bought the 6'6" XXHeavy rod, rated for 80 - 200lb test, in March 2011. I mounted my Penn GT320 with 80lb braid and proceeded to go shark fishing. The rod is a beauty, but I'm glad I didn't hook anything larger then 30lbs with this outfit. I felt like if I pressed this rod too hard it would snap. Now I believe you can break any rod out there, but this one is very over rated. I have since mounted my Abu Garcia 7000 with 50lb. braid which makes a much better combo. Now if you are careful with with this rod, it makes an excellent striper rod. Light weight, great feel in hand, very sensitive, and did I say quite a pretty thing?
