Overhead Jig Reel

Hey Guys


Just doing a bit of research on a overhead jig reel and was looking for some oppinions. I have a Extreme Fishing WA overhead rod that currently has a tyrinos 30 on it. As you can imaging that isnt overly comfortable to jig with. I am hoping to put a lighter narrower reel on it that will handle PE5.


I have a Stella 5000 with PE3 on a JM rod aswell. that i mainly use. so just looking for a little heavier back up for Sambos and Kings.

Have a look at an Accurate Boss Extreme overhead. They are small but hold shitloads of line. They have a twin drag system and you can crank the drag up so the fish can pull you out of the boat. I have the Boss 600 size reel.

Ocea Jigger 4000 for me.

Holds 550m of PE5 so can double for a deep dropper if you like the pain.


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.
