Have been doing what research I can do about heavy jigging sticks. OTI apparantly is the ONLY (or close to only) one represented on most threads I read. Lamiglass, Calstar, Seeker, etc. are West Coast mfgrs often mentioned. What should I know about the construction techniques, strength, durability, of the various manufacturers. Since only the highest Japanese use Boron, etc. i presume they all offer the same composites. How is one superior to the other. Forget price for this discussion. Why are the other high end Japanese mfgrs not represented in the states? Too high a price for our worthless US dollar? Have not seen this discussed on any of the threads.
