Just fooling around with the camera and thought I take some photos of this set up and get some feedback. I like the looks of the rod, and it seems plenty strong.

I am looking to add about three more good looking yet totally functional high qualty conventional jigging rods to my collection.

At the moment the top of my list include:

1) OTI 300g or 600g
2) Accurate Xnergy
3) Jigging Master Power Spell
4) HOTS Wei World deep jigging rod
5) Custom made Spiral/Acid Wrap Jigging Rod

#5 for sure, just to support the little guy.
#1 (most likely since its so highly recommended)
and a toss up for my third rod between the others left standing.

Bimini Bay Outfitters - Tsunami Trophy Series Rod

Model: TSTSU-5950, Size: 5'9", Action: Hvy, Line: 50#-100#
Speed Butt

"Though unidirectional graphite composite blanks are wrapped in an ultra-high modulus graphite mesh outer layer over the length of the unidirectional blank for increased sensitivity, toughness power and strength to overcome trophy size gamefish."

Daiwa Ishidai Z40 Reel

Gear Ratio: 4.9:1, Weight: 24.6 oz, Max Drag: 33#
Braid: 50# Ripcord SI+ (Dyneema fiber hybrid-braid)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
10 and 20 pound weights used. Yes, I know I am "high sticking" in a few of the photos, I am still a newbie so go easy on me. LoL :rolleyes:

-------------------
Edit (2 years later): What was I thinking! All of those heavy rods and reels are gone now.
ha ha ha

like Paul said you can have a custom wrapped OTI 300g,600g and popping rods. I have at least one of each except the 50lb popping rod.

Your Rods look a lot better in those photo's versus the other ones.

Look better how? This is a different rod than the other photo I posted; which was a Bass Pro Shops Offshore Extreme 80-100# FreeStyle Rod. Which I mailed back for a refund on Thursday. It felt a bit too light... maybe that is what is meant by "noodle stick".

I am most certainly leaning towards the OTI custom rod.

Ty,

The way you are working the rod is what I meant. You are not high sticking it this time.

Oh ok. thanks.
I think it was easier with this rod because it has more of a backbone.
The other rod, Offshore Angler Extreme was shipped back to BassProShops..
