How about a St. Croix 2M610MF - out of their Muskie line? I use mine to jig bass and bluefish with a Calcutta 400 on it - no problem at all pulling on biggie bluefish. Casts very well too.
I use that set up for cobia & kings when I go down to the keys lots of fun..That little calcutta 400 has great drag..
There is a place down there that makes blanks just for fla fishing. The blanks are called Estfin I have built on a few ..I think the make a nice blank you may want to check them out..But than again cant go wrong with a GUSA
