Jig rod recommendation

Postby PhilN » Sun Nov 05, 2017 4:41 pm

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a really good jig rod, jig weight I will use 60g up to 200g.
Happy to spend that bit extra for something really good.
Also - what reel would you match it with?
Thanks
Phil

Way to long a rod.

I use a tcurve deep jig 200. Won't be any good for 60g jig weights though

Yeah I have the 200-400g t-curve and it’s a bit of a broomstick on anything less than 200g
Looking for a top notch rod for lighter jigs like the Samaki range

something like this would be ideal..

or look at the Abu veritas jigging range, Penn Jigging range (very nice). and the shimano ocea jigging range, and also the storm models..

reel wise the shimano saragossa series or the Daiwa saltist LTD/BG range if buying local

Jignesis, I believe they're trying to break into the Vic Market. Not sure if Complete anglre in Dandy, Hooked on in Hoppers or Kollious in sunshine stock them or not but they're medium priced and proper Jigging rods.

Fitzy90 recommended a Shimano TCurve Deep Jig 200 with a Saragossa 10000 for Kingfish and small tuna....took his advise and now it's one of my favourite combos (& it's great for trolling as well)
