What stick for oj1500hg

 Hi guys looking at a new set up... Pretty sold on the reel with 40pound pe2 ocea braid but still not sure on the rod... Leaning towards temple reef mytho plus 62b but other options so far are hots slow style sss63h and NS pioneer range of slow jerk rods... Any thoughts on these or recommend something else? I currently have a hots fake lez 1-3 on a Stella 4000 with 27 pound pe1.2 and love it but want something with a bit more guts for heavier jigs around the 150g mark... The fake lez doesn't really like anything over 90g

 Ok so I had a look at the levitate the other day and it is one sexy rod and I loved the feel of it but the reel seat seems over sized for the oj1500, spiral wrap is nice but not sure the price tag is justified... Haven't held a metal witch yet but what iv looked at on the net they do look the goods and at a price that is really reasonable for what u get... Mytho is still on the cards but I think your guys recommendations are just up at the moment... 

 

Fincher do you understand where I'm coming from with the reel seat??? How is it in hand with such a small reel ontop ?

 I was just looking at the same range to suit my JM PE2 reel wich is pretty similar size.

When at the shop trying the rods they put a OJ1500 on for a feel.

The levitate felt really nicebut a little long and the real seat did feel a bit out of place.

I ended up going a Mytho plus 62b and dont regret it in the slightest. Personally dont think another rod in that range comes close.

I bought my mytho and took it straight on a 5 day charter to the Monties where i used it as my main rod and pushed it to its limits. Gaurenteed you will be impressed. I used up to 200g jigs and it handled them well. And bowled over some big really angry fish.
