i use a calstar wcdh 6480 8' as my jig stick... on most private boats with rocket launchers you dont always have room for 9 - 10' rod to cast properly

Calstar 90j all day! Shoulder issues, best to avoid graphite. If you can’t whip a jig on a 7’6 start there and work your way up to a 9’ or 10’.

CUI 10’....easy to cast...load up a dream on the cast and when fighting a fish. This jig stick is my one and only custom, makes my 90j seem like a beast

I don't know how you guys do it on larger conventional reels. I can't stand guiding the line back on with my thumb.

For me it's just personal preference because it's what I grew up with. I feel there are more advantages with a conventional the way I like to fish. A comfort zone thing?

I intend to change that. Probably a Fathom 25n
How well can you cast? Low profile, level wind might be your ticket. I was surprised how well my Lexa 400 cast. And once you get the cast control dialed in. You pretty much don't need your thumb.
I paid $160 for mine new online. Or you can buy one on BD for $200. They're proud of them here.

I had a Tranx 500 and that was nice for casting and retrieving but it was big!
