Ocean Tackle International - 250gram Prototype blank testing

New Carbon technology blanks will change 2010's marketplace.  OTI is one of the companies that has a jump on the market with the first in-production/mas production lineup of jigging and popping rods.  From what I hear they will keep their older Extreme and Tuna Sniper lineup and create an entry level lineup along with the Carbon technology lineup.

I wonder about the lifting power? Compared to the black hole rods I bent before Christmas I think they would be up to par but this rod is still in prototype fashion. First ship date is in February for:
Jigging Rod Models: 250g, 400g, 500g and maybe 800g
Popping Rod Models: 7'6" 40-60lb, 7'6" 60-80lb, 7'6" 80-120lb, 8'6" 40-60lb, 8'6" 60-80lb
