As a light tackle and jigging fanatic, I have been fishing this rod for the past several seasons when I plan on targeting a variety of species and want the convenience of a spinning rod. These rods are based off an MHX graphite blank rated for 15-30lb braid, 1-5oz lures and available in 6’6” and 7’0” lengths.
While originally designed for vertical jigging inshore bottom fish like fluke, blackfish, sea bass, and cod, they are more than capable of fishing big plugs, large soft plastics on jig heads, live eels, and live bunker fishing as well for striped bass, bluefish, cobia, and small tuna. They feature a soft tip section with a progressive bend through the top half of the blank, with good reserve power through the bottom half and handle section for a lightweight rod.
The single foot guide configurations are preferable for jigging as they are lighter and keep the tip sensitive, while the double foot are better for heavy duty fishing. The rod is designed to be fished with a 3000-5000 size Daiwa reel or VSX2 100/VS150 with up to 30lb braided line.
