The rods I have that match up perfectly.....I'm inclined to keep them for now. Plus they would be kinda spendy. Thanks for asking though!
If I was looking for a good 80 / 100 lb rod for tuna, at a reasonable cost / value, I'd talk to one of our local rod builders about building up something like a Rainshadow RCJB84XXH.
