    Looking for some guidance on matching a spinning jigging rod to my new 2020 Saltiga 10000H(spooled with 50 lb braid).

    I primarily fish wrecks/reefs up to 200 feet depth using jigs between 100-220g depending on conditions. Nothing I fish is typically over 50 lbs.

    I primarily speed jig.

    Local shop suggested the Smith AMJ or a newer AMJX series. The latter seems to be greater than 6’ in length and is probably more for technical jigging.

    Thinking a M power rod in either would be the best option based on jigs used and fish I’d be fighting.

    Hear good things about the Yamagas as well.

    Never fished the yamaga jigging blanks but my AMJ 52H goes on just about every jigging trip I take.
