I am not sure if they are still making them, but I have heard from people I trust that the Biscayne blue water rods are exceptional.

Another option is Graphite-USA.

They have a 15 weight that casts surprisingly well + it's so strong you can put a MAJOR hurting on fish with it, land them & release them.

Nothing worse then catching big fish on too light gear.

PM me if you want some links.

Do any of you guys know which bluewater flyrod is the strongest, meanest pulling stick available? (#20, 7', glass/graphite composite would be ideal). I want to use it for yellowfin tuna in 100lb range, with heavy 40-50lb tippets. Casting ability not that important.

Hi Natrix,

Im Jose from Spain, two months ago I bought a Lamiglas grand bw #15. Tried in Gibraltar Straits, had two strikes of big white marlin but no catch at all. My impression is that is a big stick with casting performance. Good finish and still light enough for spending a day after big fish. In january Ill test with giant tarpon at Bijagos archipielago in Guinea. My article of this place is just published at Wild on the Fly magazine. For me this rod is a very good option for bw big fish. Regards,

Jose

TFO have a new composite glass/graphite Bluewater rod just going into production. No hundreds yet, but one field tester landed 14 YFT to 65 lbs. in a single day with it and the new TFO Hayden reel. Tester reported that he actually tried to break the rod, but could not get it to snap.

Both rod & reel combined will sell for less $$ than a single high-end rod. The rod will cast anything from 12 to 15-weights.
