I just looked at the Cedros Jigging rods and at first look, they looked like they should be major players with Torques, Saltigas, Trevelas, expecially for the money (about $100 retail). They had a high end aluminum reel seat, seperate hand holds with exposed rod between and high end guides, and excellent wraps. The only noticeable drawback was the lack of interface to a rod belt. I would be interested in someone that had one telling me the straight lift capabilites (such as was done by someone with a Saltiga recently). Any thoughts, experiences on this rod?
