    If it were me, I'd make the match-up between an Avet HXJ and Shimano Trinidad 40N as I don't particularly care for the wider Trini 50 or LX as jigging reels.

    I was in the market a few months ago for a few new jigging reels after getting rid of my Accurate Boss reels and went with the Trini 40N but there are plenty of happy users of just about every reel out there, just a matter of personal preference :)

    Mark, I just purchased a HX narrow, the new one that just came out and will be testing it out hopefully soon on some TX tunas.

    I second the Trinidad 40N. I've got the Ocea Jigger the same size and it a beast with 15kg of drag and a little lower gear ratio. Put the Trinidad handle in the last hole for a little mas leverage and it's a powerhouse. The 50 is too bulky for jigging.
