howzit trev

from personal experience i would say go with the standard blade

i own both the hmg and standard blades i love them both buyt as u said the hmg blade is verry dificult to cast wil take u a long time to master it as i have had it fur 3 years now and still havent mastered it.

as for the pulling power i dont think there is any other rod which comes close but so for fighting a big sandy or massive skate it will out class all other rods.

with all that said the standard blade is indeed the better of the two because its simply easy to through with and also has sufficiant pulling power so u can turn the fish quicker.

the reel u wana use tn30 is excellent that is what i have on my standard blade and it a balanced outfit .

hope thats helps .....
