    Need help real quick on a rod for a Saltist 30T (65# braid and 50 or 60# topshot). I want a jigging rod for aj’s and tuna that can also function as a casting/live bait stick for other types of fishing like kings and tarpon. I’m trying to decide between a 7’ or 7’2” graphite w/ cork handles such as the Falcon Coastal tarpon Special and the GraphTech 7’2”, or a specifically jigging rod like the Daiwa Saltiga 5’11” SA-JG 511HFB.

    I’d like an all around type set-up UNLESS it won’t do any of the jobs very well. I loved the feel of the 7’2” GraphTech, but I’m worried that it won’t be a very efficient jigging stick.

    Calstar 700H? It can jig, live bait, cast, etc... From all the threads and posts I've read, it sounds like a great blank and a VERY versatile, all-around rod.
