Jig 200

Sat, 2006-12-02 12:31

I have the jig 200 in 24kg and have been very happy with it. Handled most of my sambo's with relative ease, just depends how much hurt you want to put on them. I've got buggered shoulders so I let them do all the hard work and then play them to the surface.

You can see my stick in action on this vid:

Read some of the discussion under the vid too, few opinions been thrown around. :)

Hi Steve,

Hi Steve,

The Shimano Deep spin and O/H rods are no where as good as their new range....the Jig Wrex!

The Jig Wrex is far more parabolic and reduces angler fatigue which puts more pressure on the fish. My custom made "Jigmaster" rods are very good also and you may want to compare!

We sell most all the jigging rods available, pop in, we'll look after you on price also...PM me if ya want more info!

Cheers

Id go the 37kg as i have

Id go the 37kg as i have seen the odd 24 not handle bigger fish. Thats if you want a tcurve, as ryan said the jigwrexs are a softer action so it gives you less back aches :P

Call Ryan!

G'Day Sherbert,

Is that price for an old 37kg T-curve rod or the new jig wrex? If its for the older t-curve, I'd definitely contact Ryan first.
