If you took out a pole over here, it may not reach the top !, that's simply because poles over here are dictated by a majority of traditionalists who look down on this kind of pattern. The blob is noted for being cast out as far as possible on a sinking line and ripped back at high speed, showing little use for application of skill, hence fround upon, but there are many other way's to fish it that require a level of skill.
In short, for out and out fish catching qualities, the blob wins.
