I am considering buying one of these 2 rods for a medium heavy rod to potently replace my Jigging Master titanium 350 gram conventional rod. The reason I'm considering replacing this rod is because i proofer to jig 200-400 gram jigs and the JM 350 is a tad to stiff to work theses jigs all day long. My main target will be 30-60 pound amberjack and 30 plus pound grouper along with other random species. The reel I will place on the rod will be an Shimano ocea 4000p match will jb 60 hollow.

you forgot to try mine.
the reason i like the synit is the light tip and the backbone of the Kevlar part.
mine is a venom 250 and they are really similar rods. i tried few rods until i found this and it replaced my jm power spell 250, also like the lenght, those extra 4" over the jm helps a lot with the lighter and low drag jigs, found it works better with longer jigs than the jm.

I've never tried the JM, but the Synit TP is a badass rod. Very comfortable working light jigs and tons of power down low. The rod is more than capable for your target.

JM is mass product rod, Synit is made by order.

So I looks like everyone loves the synit rods so it looks like my Q has been answer but which blank to buy do I go with the TP 200 or any other blank? I would like to jig 150g -400 gram jigs but on occasions will the tp200 be able to jig 500 plus gram jigs for snowies

The Kaha 300 is good for the range of jigs you want, the TP 200 won't do 500g. The Kaha is perfect for what you're after IMO. GL.

You'll be fine with either, the Kaha 300g is more parabolic of a rod with the TP having more of a shut off. Both rods are great all rounders. With the tuna pro you can order a blank and build it yourself or have it built locally, the Kaha's are only being built by Synit right now. I have dropped 400g jigs with the TP 200 and it handled them just fine. There is also a Kaha tuna pro 200 out there..... lol, oh yes they did.

The Tuna Pro is a fantastic rod. The rod has a soft tip with a 400g+ backbone. Some prefer a more paraboic taper, I prefer the softer tip.

The TP200 is a extremely flexible when it comes to jig weight and applications whether your catching Blackfin or Bluefin. I Landed a 72-73 inch bluefin in about 20 minutes last March and have almost as much fun pulling on blackfin with it in the GOM.

Go with the Synit Kaha Seriola (updated TP200). Besides, if you don't like it....I know of atleast one Kaha sold at a premium to original purchase price here on 360T.

Kaha Seriola (Tuna Pro 200 for Northern hemisphere)
Max Drag: 18kg
Fighting Drag 8-15kg,
Max Jig: 500g
Best Jig: 180-450g
Max Line PE: PE8

Here is the spec, bro. But I don't think you can get the kaha seriola blank, coz we don't sell blank for the kaha series.

From what I understand any of the new Kaha series are not available as a blank only factory built rods from Synit.
You can get previous models if still available as a blank.
The Deepshot TP200 might be able to be purchased as a blank.
