offshore bottom rod blank suggestions

customers wife is having trouble using a production rod in the $250 range she says is to stiff for her.
This is a conventional reel set up.
looking for a blank 80-100lb line range using 8-12 oz lead to drop down bottom fishing in 200 ft for grouper.

I would appreciate the boards help in picking out a blank 6'6'' or 7' length.

I'd rather be catching!

From Rainshadow lineup I’d recommend the RCKJB (Knife Jigging) blanks would give her some of the play. RCKJB508-500 or possibly the RCKJB606-325 - [www.rainshadowrodblanks.com]

The American Tackle AXVJ7060-325 would work in the length you requested. My personal favorite for yanking Groupers and TIles from 300-600ft is the AXVJ5810-500 but it's only 5'8".
