    Just picked up 4 of these at a flea market. Wondering if the taper lends itself to make a decent jig rod for yft's. Any idea's?

    How would the action be Paul in your opinion? stiff or whippy?

    it is a live bait blank. so it has a soft tip.
    i dont know if i would say whippy.
    and the butt is pretty big, so it has some nice power.

    most guys fish 30-40# with it, chucking jigs and retrive, not so much a vertical jig,
    out here guys have used them for bottom fish, but i think they are to heavy in hand for that.

    Thanks Paul. Trolling rods they become then. Would probably use them for vertical jigging. Might take one and make it 7'6" and see how it would handle an 8oz diamond; couldn't hurt.
