JM ocean god 280

Has anyone used one of these? I just bought a sabre game and am really happy with it. I have a saltist40 that i plan on running 40/50lb on and was thinking this looks like a nice match for it. Any other rods in the $200/$300 price range that i should consider?

Jigstar -

G'Day JD, the JM Ocean God 280 is a nice rod but have a look at the Jigstar 250 as it has a sweet action for 40/50lb and similar price.

Cheers will come have a look at one, am looking at jigwrex and cronys aswell, any feed back from people actually using these rods would be nice, kinda sold on the JM at the moment though.

yeah i got a  JM sabre game

yeah i got a  JM sabre game spin a few weeks back and was really impressed with it, running 15lb on it should have went 20lb... got smoked a few times already, the jigwrexs look good and are a bit cheaper but still leaning towards the JM ocean god since they seem to have the same bend as the sabre.

15lb is definitely

15lb is definitely undergunned on a sabregame.

You can dead lift 10kg with the rod (so the advertising tells me).

I think you can run 10kg of drag through this pretty easy (based on mine running 7kg plus some heavy thumbing of spool generally)

When asked by a non-fisherman 'how many fishing rods do you really need?' the correct answer is either:

n+1 (where n is the number of fishing rods you currently own); or

n-1 (where n is the number of fishing rods which would cause your significant other to dump you.

yeah mate im well aware of this now, need to get my head around pe/lb conversions... hindsight should have used 20lb. just going to run the braid hard and lose a few jigs for now, maybe i'll get lucky and land something worth bragging about.
