live fibre 10/15 kilo but i only use it for trolling and bottom bouncing , not the best size for jigging bit wide and heavy would have gone the 20 or smaller as a jigging reel

Budget and line class? Any idea what type of jigging you want to do? Sambos, demersals, deep, etc?

I have two live fibres for trolling and they're nice rods for trolling but not so nice jigging.

t curve overhead 400 is pretty popular. I am considering selling mine and going for something lighter if you are interested.


PM if you are keen.

To narrow down your choices, set a budget and line class.

We highly recommend the FWA PE3-5 or 5-8 overhead jig rods for their quality and great value for money. Another inexpensive choice to look at is the Ugly Stik Bluewater range.
