Good jigging reel and rod for Perth snaps

 Looking for a good jiiging reel for perth snapper and other species maybe dhuies, breaksea, baldies. Can be spin or overhead doesnt really matter just whatever is best. Also a good jigging rod with a slow action as I will be slow pitch jigging. What would be recomend braid and what lb. Budget is around $1200 as I want it to last. Cheers

I have a Stella 6000 on a game type j. 30lb outfit. Nice and light and a delight to use. Should be able to squeeze into your budget.  


Does anyone know where the love of god goes, when the waves turn the minutes to hours?

Oceans legacy pe4 overhead spiral wrap rod, (their probably more on the pe3 side). Shimano Ocea Jigger 2000 reel, Ocea pe3 braid. That will stop just about any metro demersal, is all well within your budget, and are all items which should last long term.

 Plus 2 for the ocea jigger but the 1500 has more than enough balls for perth. Mine takes 400m of pe2.5. Ive used it in 200m of water.

That leaves you about 600 for the rod. If you can stretch another $200 that gets you into all the high end slow pitch rods like the levitates, propogates, poseidons. It is best you pick a few up but. If you cant stretch the budget oceans legacy do some nice rods around the $400 mark.

 The levitate spiral guides and two of the posiden models slow pitching in 200m 300m of water with these is great and you do it with ease i got 600m of pe 2 sunline siglon on the 1500 and 750m of pe 2 on the ocea jig 2000

If not going super deep can go the ocea jigger 1000, same as the 1500 just smaller spool capacity from memory.

Fits 300m of PE2 Ocea braid beautifully, no need to worry about heap of mono backing to fill the spool.
