No. 8 Tackle Company Blackout Casting Rod Review

I won this 7’3″ MH rod from No. 8 Tackle from the bracket contest. Over all great looking rod that is extremely affordable. Used by Pro Brandon Hunter. You can’t go wrong with the Blackout line of rods from No. 8 Tackle.

matt atherton says:

the only thing I wish I saw on tacklewarehouse is that these things have micro guides. and personally, I use 40lb braid, and if I want a leader, im not going below 15 pound flouro. so, even with an fg knot, I wouldn’t trust those tiny guides with a knot going through. im 100% sure they’ll snap off. which sucks, but, for $80, I can use straight braid.

Looks like a great rod, pardner…go get ’em.

The 13 reels are great!

Dan Platt says:

I know it’s random but could you tell me the size of the end double foot guide on the blackout rod I’m trying to replace it the one closest to the reel.

How is weight of the rod?  Thanks for the review man.

OutdoorsPA1 says:

Terrible rod, dont buy! Had to return it once for several broken guides, and im going to return it again for more broken guides and a metal piece in my split handle came loose and slides up and down my handle!

DTMJ productions says:

nice vid I’ve been looking at them on tackle warehouse and didn’t know whether to get one

The Bass Master says:

Awesome looking rod

Jake kroger says:

Hey man, what model do you think would be best for jigs, t-rigs, frogs(sparse vegetation), and Carolina rigs. I was also wondering what line would be best. I hate braid and would prefer 20 lb fluorocarbon. Do you think I should just man up and use 40 lb braid. Thanks bro!

Josh Sadler says:

Where you get that hat from? Lol

John Nagy says:

I just bought a 7ft med heavy blackout casting for myself as an early xmas present. tried it with a my Abu Garcia on it feels awesome. I’m planning on putting a diawa tatula on it. can’t wait to slaughter bass & pickerel on it.
