JIGWREX IS HERE!

Time to reach in and spend some $$ boys and girls,
Jigwrex are here.

The first thing you will notice is its paint job; trust me.
Bit pricy... might it still come down a bit over time? ;)

I'll definately recommend it over anything else Shimano has to offer in terms of Jig rods, until the Blue Roses hit the shelves..

Wed, 2006-09-13 23:36

Big John.......1 and 2 peice versions depending which model!.......$369 but cheaper to FWA & FW members
My Jigmaster rod is a bit cheaper and better by far, the Jig Wrex is good for mass production and there's no doubting that at all but my custom made sticks are better hense why I've just bought 2 for my personal use......... ;)
We'll show you the difference next week when the O/H Jigmasters come in mate!

My review is pretty

Sun, 2006-09-24 22:19

My review is pretty simple.....average...good bottom basher but too fast action to jig with imo. Its also a 2pc, which Im always wary of when going hard on the drag, hence why I used 30lb on my PE4 rated overhead. The JigWrex is a series of rods.....from medium boat casting to heavy jig. Varies in tapers and actions and very smick paintjob.....

But I still prefer my Oceanside jigmaster, might have to get another soon and offload the JigWrex.

Hey Ryan/Honsu, what overhead models of the Jigmaster are available? Something similar to the TCurve Jig 200 O/H? They sound awesome, might consider getting one instead of the TCurve.

No problem, I'll try to sort something out with pics......
FYI, the JigWrex 80lb stick is only available in one model and thats 5ft spin. Very short and bit of a broom stick. The 5'2" 60lb is a bit nicer to use.

Watch this space......

What does 'fast action' mean?

Rod action

Sun, 2006-10-08 21:09

Fast action rods are those that are fairly stiff through the bottom two thirds of the rod, with the top third rapidly forming the working curve when the rod is loaded. Good for crisp lure and bait casting rods.

Slow action (parabolic) rods see the working curve formed right back to the reel seat (and sometimes past). These rods put less hurt on the angler and more hurt on the fish. Not great casting rods but great for jigging with braided lines.

John

PS. Medium is a compromise of both, without doing either as well as the specialised actions (fast/slow).

Thanks a bunch big john, now I finally understand what is meant by 'fast', 'slow' action etc.. you couldn't have explained it any better ;))

That Jigwrex Pic above doesn't really look fast action IMO, or were you just refering to the PE4 Honsu?

Why do Shimano release a rod

Thu, 2006-10-12 16:12

Why do Shimano release a rod before there is even information on their website about it? I can't find anything on the Shimano Australia website about the Jigwrex, why is that?

reel to match 5ft10 spin PE3 2pc

Thu, 2007-01-25 02:35

hi honsu,

looking to match a reel to this.
is the saltiga blast a good buy?
what size would you recmmend?

or perhaps just a simple freams J 4500 will do?
is 40 pound braid overkill?

will be doing light fishing, for those 3-6kg travalies and snappers

thanks!

Thu, 2007-01-25 06:39

30lb braid is ample for the trevally and snapper you're after. Saltiga blast sounds like it would be a good match to the PE3 rod with that line. You could also consider the Twinpower 6000 or maybe the Japanese TP 8000 if you need a little extra line cap.

Yep , up to 89 Sambo's and only had to replace the placcy gimbal with a $12 ali job .

Saltist 40 is still killing them as well ;)

P.S. played with a PE3 rod with a Z4500 on it , was a smooth little number for sure , handled a 250 g jig in 85m of water no worries .

Andrew ( dog soldier) was on board as well .

I went down to oceanside

Tue, 2007-03-13 09:35

I went down to oceanside when i purchased my jigging outfit and Ryan and Honsu gave me the run down on how things work in your favor. I think it went something like the more flex and bend that runs right down to the butt on the rod under full load applies more pressure on to the fish as a greater force is needed to swim away. This in turn has less impact on the angler as he needs not use his back and arms as much as with a rod like a short stroker. Less fatuige on the fisherman is the key which haas resulted in more fish being able to land in a session. When i place my jig rod up against my others under load you can see the difference straight away and you acctually hold on for longer! As said above people like honsu, mavrick and the like could possibly let a lot more light in on the subject as ive only landed a handful of fish on jig before. Still learning but starting to love it even more.

Keep it tight, reeeeeeel tight!

correct me if i'm wrong but

Tue, 2007-03-13 11:42

correct me if i'm wrong but dun think there should be any different in terms of fishes swimming away under stress from a fast or a slow action rod, cause once it locks up (at whatever point) the pressure will be there to regardless of rod action, agreed that a slower action rod might be easier on the angler so maybe a better way of putting it will be since you have the adv from slower action rods maybe then you can have more strength left to fight the fish?

Thi is were ill pass up my knowledge! Ive got my view but its mine and might not be right so ill leave one of the better guys to answer this because its easy to get burnt if your wrong and dont know what your talking about! Which in this case im not sure. Hopefully Mav can answer alittle better. All i know is that the ones mensioned before helped me out emensly with applying more pressure on the fish and less on me. T-curves and the such dont compare to the jigmaster, rapala and blue rose etc in my point of view but thats only my opinion.

HI Mark, long time no

Tue, 2007-03-13 20:27

HI Mark, long time no hear... I think the idea is have a medium to slow action rod but not a noodle stick that would bend to bottom with a small fish. Our "semi" custom stick are built on a parabolic action blank where it does bend further down than many rods. The lock up point of such rod is lower down therefore giving more leverage to the angler than the fish.
