Veritas 3.0 spin jig rods

Hey guys and gals. Has anyone here used the Abu Garcia Veritas 3.0 pe1-3 or pe2-4 spin jig rods? Looking for something light for the occasional boat trip microjigging, jigging plastics for snapper and trolling lures. Ideally would like to keep the price around $150. Was looking at the Gokmoku then read how some folk have had them snap. Already have a Stradic FK5000 spooled with 20lb braid to match (also have 30lb if a better match?) Apologies for the typical 'which rod?' question, just thought this would be the best place to ask. Cheers everyone!

 These days first pic around that $range would be majorcraft crostage.   But closer to $200

The shimano maikuro would be a cheap and pretty good rod easily in your price though


Money doesn't buy happiness but it pays for my fishing so ...I may be wrong there.

 The guys at oceanside recommended one of these in pe 3-5 

For the money I have been really happy with it so far but it has only done a few trips out on my last trip to Exmouth.

Great value for money but there may be better stuff out there - Im sure the guys at oceanside will sort you out!
