After reading 360tuna.com forum for last two days, I might just take a left turn return my Cabo 80 spinning reel which would not fit Daiwa Saltiga Spinning Jig Rod that I ordered(returned already). I was getting tired of trying to find a right jigging rod to fit Cabo 80.

So here I am thinking why not get the best if not popular jigging combo investing few more dollars.

My conclusion: OTI 600g Spinning Rod and Saragos F 18000. I would like to get some feedback, greatly appreciated.

great setup..the OTI 600 is a monster rod..the saragosa is a great reel to pair with it..
that OTI and the Jigging master are pretty popular setups

i have the same setup. very fun to use for big jigs, even smaller 240g too. saragosa is a beast. its not a stella but i have faith in it. the drag washers scare me, so i replaced them with carbontex on both saragosa 18000's
puglias in neworleans has the rod for 209.00. that cant be beat for a world class rod.

i had a cabo 80 which i loved but it was lost due to a size 18 reel seat. it cleared a few guides after coming undone and went swimming. the anti reverse would skip a few holds even as new. i love the cabo drags but the anti revers is its downfall. at least on the newer ones. my cabo 60 and 50 are bulletproof. saragosa is a safe bet.

i havent seen the composite gusa other than the URS series
maybe i will call tommorrow and find out about them

i have seen the bend and they seem a little faster than what we were looking for
i do like using the graphite blanks when i buy from GUSA

YES;
Billy has some new blanks & we love them..I know this is a offshore site BUT..If you guys inshore fish they make some of the best rod blanks I have ever fished..
My hook-up rate went up since I started using the GUSA composites inshore blanks..From fluke to blackfish & stripers to redfish & snappers to jacks..We have the rod blanks for you...........
