I know most larger saltwater rods generally don't use a trigger, but with a smaller diameter reel (Saltist 30T) I figured a trigger might make the rod more controllable and comfortable.

I'm still new to jigging so why or why not?

I want to build a 50# OTI 7'6" in conventional for a dual purpose rod and I'm trying to decide on a trigger reel seat. Going for light and agile with the build so no aluminum.

i find if you use a reel clamp it acts as added support , kinda like a trigger, so you dont need both i say rod clamp no trigger

Most people complained about the reel clamp on the Saltist because it is very large and awkward. I'll have to try it on another rod and see how it feels. It felt terrible with a trigger not sure about how it is on a plain reel seat though.

The pss reel seat is made for jigging. It's quite comfortable and I prefer it over regular reel seats.
