to all the deep jiggers

what's the max weight  jigs you use, around the 350 meter mark, on a reasonably good day??

can't find a used rod so prob looking new, just getting an idea of size needed

as said in my wanted post , it's for sambo's too , so if it were a jigging master rod , d'ya think the 350g would cover it? (80lb line)

I've used up to 550g in 350m, on good days still nothing less than 300g.

Agree with Jamie

you'll be looking to use at least 300g more likely 400g+. I think Ryan Thipthorp commonly uses 600g.

Don't stress too much about the rod as you don't need too active an action, unlike Sambo jigging

600g

600g is used regularly out even from 250m. Currents out there can be a pain in the ass at times.
Use the short van stall PSD7 for that work with a 20k stella

Maybe you do OK on them? I've dropped 600g, just never really caught anything on jigs over 560g

Jigs

As previously mentioned 600gm Andaman jigs is ussually what Ryan will be using out in 250m+

Sometimes if the current is ripping through it wont be enough, We will be stocking some new jigs that will weigh approx 750gm and 1kg! Both Ryan and I will be out there using jigs chasing big Bass when the season re-opens.

The Titanium Evolution 400 has been popular for deep jigging. All depends on budget though.

Yes the 600gm jigs work well, Its only 40gm more. The action of the jig is what counts. But as with most forms of fishing the lighter you can use the better.

1kg

1kg of jig is going to get down there pretty quickly. With any luck it'll hit a horse on the head on the way down. We might start seeing hook-ups with a jig imbedded into a fish's head.
