My question is: do these rods run on the light or heavy side of thier rating? I

With those drag expectations you're closer to a 80# stick than a 50#.
uh-- I think I hear a POP in my future!! Dangit! Thank goodness it was pretty cheap!

Will get those pics of the jiggin rod loaded next week when I have someone here to take them... will get some of this rod with the same weight on it.
