Black Hole Challenger 801M

Black Hole is known for making some of the lightest and most sensitive rods on the market today, with the Challenger series being a favorite among local anglers. These blanks weigh a mere 2-3oz prior to being built and feature a soft tip, but don't let that fool you. These blanks can deadlift 10-20 lbs with ease, so they're plenty capable of pulling that big Sea Bass, Fluke, Cod, or Blackfish off the bottom and over the gunwale. 

This build starts with a Black Hole Challenger 801M blank trimmed to an overall length of 7'9". A split cork handle featuring burnt/medium burl inlays and Fuji graphite reel seat help keep the rod lightweight and responsive. The wrap is a combination Star/Snowflake in neon green and neon say it's "bright" is an understatement! Fuji Alconite guides in a green/black/orange color combination to match the wrap complete this build which will see time in Long Island Sound and Montauk on all species of fish.
