Rod blank suggestions

I am looking to build a demersal jig rod and have a couple of blanks in mind. A JM Super Tornardo 60 UL PE 1.5-4, 100- 230 gram jig and the other is a Xzoga Taka 60 PE3 3-5 kg drag max 10 and a max jig weight of 230 grams. Wondering if anyone has thoughts or other suggestions. The JM is apparrently the same as a three kings but slightly longer at 6 foot. I will be using a saltiga z4500 with 30 lb braid

That JM blank is a nice one.

That JM blank is a nice one. Should also look at the lightest of the Fallings blanks by JM if the budget permits, they are a great piece of kit.


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.

  Thanks for the feed back. I have'nt seen the samurai's yet but I do intend to get out and see whats available. The fallings is probably outside the budget, though I dont doubt it's a nice piece. I'd prefer a length around 6 foot as I can set the butt to a comfotable length or trim a bit if necessary.
