    What is it about jigsticks that keeps us searching for the next one? They're like crack..I swear. My wife is starting to catch on as the rod holder in the garage is getting fuller every month and I'm getting a few more tomorrow. Yikes.. I can't stop...lol. But in all seriousness, I enjoy the fact that they all do the same thing, but each does it differently. Different throw, different bend under pressure, weight, balance etc.. I also love trying different gear and if I don't like it...I sell it. So far I haven't sold any...oops.Can anyone else relate?

    My collection so far:

    Custom OC Rods Hale940
    Custom Seeker g6490
    Custom CUI 9' 30#
    Custom CUI 9' 40#
    Custom Calstar gg690j
    Cousins f90j
    Kencor 9' blank
    CUI 10' blank

    and here we go...people like what they like. I don't want this to turn into a pissing contest about what the "best" is...just if some of you can relate.

    You need a 90j, Ulua 93 and 10’. I have a Seeker 690j, Ulua 93h and my favorite, a Phenix 909xhj.

    Thanks

    I'm quickly becoming the same with popper rods. So much so I have a 7' rod I'm thinking about stripping and ordering tube stock to make a 9'2" Frankenstein 2 piece rod.

    Do you guys use those 9’ and 10’ rods on the sport boats? I have seen it done only rarely, and I use 8-footers myself to minimize conflicts.

    3- Ulua
    2- ATC's(remember them!)
    1-Phenix 9'2" xxxh(50# rod)
    1- Roddy unsanded cut BR 100(50# rod)
    4-39s
    9- D8's
    1 OD8
    Had an H9 destroyed on the Native Sun.In the rocket launcher on my tackle box. Some guy hooked my tip casting and broke off 6". Moon was on the boat, so I have a witness. The rocket launcher on the box had a newly Moon wrapped D8- sweet stick, awesome wrap. It was inches from mine! I gave the remnant to Anthony, the deckhand. I miss the rod and wished it never happened, but in truth the blank cost me $40 and the guides and wraps were free. Imagine if that $1000+ D8's tip had been snagged?

    My name is Mike. I'm a jigstickaholic.
    I sought counselling when I reached 15 jigsticks. The shrink said I was fine. And prescribe 25 more.
    I feel better now.

    I bring a jig stick every trip. I don’t always use them, but I don’t go without one.

    I am fine....really.

    I am divesting myself of all my old jigsticks. It is such an emancipated feeling ! o_O I am only keeping the few that I sleep with.
