    Just bought an ACCURATE 665NC for tuna jigging here on Cape Cod. Plan on using 80# braid. Can anyone recommend a jigging rod to use with this reel.

    Casting or Spinning? and what kind of budget are you looking to stay within?
    nice reel by the way...
    Just saw an OTI G3 in person a little while ago. Very nice rod. You can also find good closeout deals on older OTI models now.

    the OTI are a great choice.
    a custom is another option.and not really much more (if any)
    what size fish are you targeting?

    Bluefin in Cape Cod are usually over 150 lbs and you need at least 400g rod.
    There are many choices if you look around.

    Correct. These fish are bigger than last years batch. 150-175 lbs. Broke one off yesterday.
    400g rod it is then.
    Reel is not for spinning.... jigging/casting.
    Thanks to all for your replies.
