    i am looking for three rods: 2 conventional and 1 spinner. they will be used for jigging and will be for the following reels. accurate bx2-600, penn international torque 300, shimano saragosa 18000F. the accurate has 80LB Depth Finder OTI braid while the other two both have 65LB OTI depth finder braid. $325 and below is reasonable to me per rod so please let me know.

    Smitty,

    The OTI 600g rod is a great choice for the below $300 price point.
    You might also want to look into the Xzoga Taka-Ji 5518 rod. You might be able to get a good deal on the Jigging Master rod (second hand). I am sure others will weigh in soon with suggestions; thats the great thing about this site very helpful anglers.

    Also check out Gman's (Glenn) excellent article on Jigging and Popping.

    good luck with your selection.

    Ty
