    MrBill, merci beaucoup for these wonderful pictures!

    Would like to have your advice which is best for a SRG18000F Saragosa loaded with 80lbs Powerpro (Jigging for YFT, King Fish mostly up to 50lbs and sometimes up to 100lbs). The new Sting-o Fish G-Rod STG562S-500 Spinning Jigging Rod or a Penn Torque 80/130 line rated?

    For those interested in bendo pics of the Black Hole Cape Cod special, I made composite images of the pics posted by BadFish1 (who gave me the OK to post these). I hope others find them useful!

    This is the Synit Kaha 200 jigging rod. This particular rod was built by Synit in the blue camo color. It is a conventional rod with acid wrap. (Conventional turning into spinning configuration). I put an Alutecnos 8V on this rod. The rod is loaded with 50lb braid with a 50lb fluorocarbon topshot of 15 yards. For the pictures I used 250lb mono which minimizes stretch for the lift test. This is a very lite weight rod and reel combination. The cost of the factory wrapped rod in blue camo is $725.

    Over all length of rod 66".
    Max Drag 12 Kg (26.4lbs)
    Best Drag 5-10Kg. (11-22lbs)
    Max Line PE5
    Best Line PE2-PE4
    Max Jig 320g
    Best Jig 110g - 280g

    Next up is the Synit Topshot GOM MKI casting rod. This rod was built by Synit in Neuron Pathway (copper hand dying) in a conventional wrap. I put a Shimano Tranx on it loaded with 40lb braid and a 15 yard topshot of 50lb mono. For lift pictures, I used 250lb Mono so it woundn't stretch in the pictures. This is a long rod measuring 8'0" in overal length. It is a two piece rod with a butt connection. The overall length of the butt section is 31". The factory wrapped rod in the Neuron pathway dye is $950.

    Overall length of rod 8'0"
    Max Drag 14 Kg. (30.8lbs)
    Best Drag 6-14Kg. (13.2 - 30.8lbs)
    Max Line PE8
    Best Line PE6
    Rated Lure 60 - 140g
    Max Lure 170g

    To make it simple, PE5 = 50lb braid, PE6 = 60lb braid, PE8 = 80lb braid, PE12 = 120lb braid. Hope that helps.

    First off, its hard to believe this thread now has over 100,000 views.

    As far as the jigging master enchenter goes, I haven't seen one. They aren't very expensive and should sell well. Jigging Master has always made a great product. I found the below information on the net, but have yet to lay eyes on one of the rods.

    JIGGING MASTER ENCHANTER SPECIAL ROD




    The new Jigging Master Enchanter Special rods are made from the latest X-Line power carbon fibre which is designed to increase the performance and intensity of the rod.

    With three models in the range, 200, 300 and 380, bait casting models yellow in colour and spin models white in colour, featuring Fuji reel seats with the latest ALPS SSMXNZG guides.




    Price USD
    200g 54B USD 320
    300g 53B USD 341
    380g 53B USD 357
    200g 54S USD 335
    300g 53S USD 366
    380g 53S USD 378

    Okay, going to add two light jigging rods to the list here.

    V.Fox T.Blade 80-150g PE2-4, 8kg lift (bought mine off ebay from baja2851 and it has turned out to be a decent light jigger even though I like mine shorter than its 5'-7" length):

    I don't mean to be sarcastic, but: I'm not sure which models you are talking about. Please be more specific.

    If you are are looking for micro jigging rods bends don't look for me to do bendo's in them. Micro Jigging is not my thing. Even if I am in a wheelchair in my 90's I won't get a rise out of catching bait. I buy my bait at the bait shop. I've always been the one to say "I'm looking for a fish that wants to pull me overboard".
