silstar crystal blue jsh

 hi guys, wondering if anyone has this rod. It's probably 2010 era with a thickish grip.not the split style.I matched it at the time with a Penn spinfisher 850 the US made one for bottom bashing, trolling basically a bit of everything with 50lb braid. It has a great action on the troll but always found it too stiff in the tip for bottom bashing.

Tried out some jigging for the first time on Saturday out near rotto and found it to be a bit cumbersome and seems the balance is off with the spinfisher 850 was Wondering if anyone had ideas on a better reel to suit. Or had experience with it, the rod goes pretty good when connected to something solid. Like mother earth.. Haha.
