If your not in a hurry, the soon to be released 400g OTI is what I would use. Or if you need a rod now a 600g OTI would get the nod.

My 665N 2-speed sits on a 300G OTI - it's a great jigging combo. Handles fish to 35lbs easily (I haven't caught anything larger with it yet). Super light package and handles 20lbs+ of drag (love that maximum drag:D ). I primarily use it down to 300' of water. In deeper water, I use the 600G OTI with a 665W 2-speed.

the oti 300 has decent power, toneyc used mine on a 100lb black tip in short amount of time. i think the 665 would match up with the 400 and 600 gm better. 270 and 870 on the 300 would be killer combos.

I know they do but almost all of my rods are custom


You can still get the 400g as a custom rod, when the blanks come available

You could get a 400g jigging master. That's what i just did and I have an accurate 665N 2 spd. Kil Song set me up. Nice combo now I just need to test it out.
