    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.

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

    Like I commented in another thread, I love those rods! They are some what inexpensive and have good action. They are really good bottom fishing rods.

    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..
