i want to ask guys about your opinion for slow jigging rods that has a wide range of jig weights because i might need heavy weights and also in sometimes i might use 100 to 150 grams jigs .. i see a lot of rods with very close range like 220g to 300 g , i need rods reccomendations for rods with wide range :)
Thank you

You can get rod rated to fish heavier jigs and fish lighter jigs but the rod will not rebound effectively with the lighter jigs... You're better off purchasing 2 rods to fish the range of jig weights you want... The Evergreen Poseidon long falls have a wide range of jig weights and p.e. ratings you can fish but the rods have a sweet spot for actual jig weights fished... What depths are you planning on fishing?

I am certainly no expert, but as I understand it the biggest difference between the slow pitch rods and regular jigging rods is the "spring back" that gives the jigs their action. By definition, you need the rod matched to the jig weight, since the rod is imparting the action...so there cannot be one rod that will work with a "wide range" of jig weights.....

Yo Ziad,

Check out the Blackhole line of Jigging rods.. 150G and 250 G Cape Code Specials or Slow Pitch rods.. Top of the line rods for a reasonable price (Reasonable for this level of high end rod)... The weight of the jig will dictate the advanced tip action required to most effectively use the gear..

Best of luck in your choices.

Jamie

you can use a long fall rod for slow pitch jigging. just have to use heavier jigs, won't give the action on lighter jigs. long fall jigs are exceptionally longer at average of 7'6'' - 7'10'', stiffer towards the tip than a slow pitch rod.

60-200m is a very wide range. you can use 1 rod but you wont get the proper action on the other end of the range.

Tried and true, ocea jigger. I'm using a saltiga 15 and it's nice. Would prefer to have the auto engage vs throwing it into gear manually. Maxels look like they may work, but no one I know has first hand experience with it.

    Shimano, Daiwa and Accurate are all excellent quality reels - and in the right configuration are great for slow pitch. I bought a Maxel and returned it immediately after disassembling it - extremely poor quality IMO. Can’t speak to jigging master, but as many have indicated they seem to be built by same company that produces Maxel so I won’t take the chance.

    My absolute FAVOURITE setup is my Shimano Game Type J B605 which handles jigs to 300 grams. It fishes nicely between 160 and 300. I pair mine with a Shimano Trinidad 16NA. That combo is hard to beat...I got a great deal on them too. PM me if you are interested. I landed a 70lb halibut on it last spring with ease fishing a 280 gram Flat Side jig.

    Good luck!
