Hiya mate,

I haven't used or seen a Grauvell rod but I have seen and used several rods in the JigStar range.

Not a bad rod for the money but definitely a level entry or beginners rod. They have a resonably nice action and look ok but they feel very butt heavy and unbalanced. For the same sort of money I would rather use a Shimano Wrex or Jig XR or T-Curve Deep Jig or a Daiwa Monster Mesh.

Just my opinion but good luck

Cheers,

Josh
