Jigging combo

 Chasing a jig outfit for demersals along the lines of a shimano stradic 4000 and suitable rod (grappler maybe) to fish 30 pound braid (whatever pe rating that is).

 Grappler pe3 with 4000 fk stradic. Landed the biggest dhuie I've caught so far and handled it with ease. The only thing I would say is that the pe3 is a little stiff to work 80 to 150g slow fall jigs with a really good action. I use it mostly as a standard bottom basher. If I had my time again I would go a softer rod probably a pe1.5 to 2.

 Mate I run 5000 stradics on pe 2 -4 gomokus and while there was a few people that had problems with these rods I have had no issues at all over the last 3  years and taken large dhus to 22kg and grey band in 180 metres running 30 lb whiplash 


The next time i see that jig will be in the mouth of something big !!
