Hey fellas, New to the forum and new to the jigging. Jeremy BTW. I know my local shop is gonna be a bit upset at me...as yesterday I had him order me in a Trevala TFS58XXH to pair up with my Penn 8500ss. I have been turned onto the OTI brand rods. I have noticed a new version (G3) has recently been released. I was wondering if any online distributors would have the older version OTI-3101-56S at a discounted rate? I was looking to spend around $200 on a rod so maybe this is a possibility. If not I may be leaning towards the G3 OTI-3103-52S. If the older version is out of the question, where is the most economic place to purchase the G3? Thanks! Jeremy Then again...I just read that the reel seat will not be compatible with my Penn?
