Anyone got some thoughts or expirence with the NS Black Hole, Explorer rods?

Just trying to find my next jigging rod, I've read up that the NS Black hole, explorer range is good but if anyone has a better idea or some feedback it would be much appreciated. BTW price range about up to $300

 Yeah mate, I own several NS jigging rods and rate them high.  The Explorer is prob the entry level budget wise but can handle heaps and is a great rod.  I've got the PE2 model and have used it for everything.  Also got the Hurricane, Magic Eye and Pioneer and they are all awesome jigging rods.

 Awesome rods that handle heaps!  I match my PE2 Explorer up to a C3000 Twinpower running PE 1.5 braid. Caught things from coral trout to mackies on it with no dramas.

 I'll second Anglers Anonymous, great service, great knowledge and great selection of rods. I dont own any of the NS jigging rods but I've got an NS One for bream fishing and I couldnt say a bad word about it.

Absolutely love it. Heaps of grunt when loaded. Personally don't see the need to spend anymore than what they are worth and what I have seen they can do
