Whatsup BDers, I was at the local tackle shop today and noticed they had a few 6490's for sale. Ive been looking to get a dedicated jig stick for some time now. I was set on an Ulua for a while just waiting to find one locally. Is the 6490 a jig stick? The rating on the side says 25-50. I held it up next to a SS Ulua and the Ulua is a dang BROOMSTICK compared to the 6490. Ive got a Trinidad 20 or a Tern 500 to slap on it. I like that its a 9' instead of the 10' Ulua. I have a 1008 CSW that rarely gets any use because its a pain to transport. Does anyone have any personal experience with the 6490 vs a 10' Ulua or 9'3 Ulua for throwing the iron? Any feedback helps as these rods are so dang expensive :eek:

    The 6490 is a pretty versatile jig stick both in the SS and the black steel graphite series. The 6490 will allow you to toss lighter/smaller surface jigs much better than an Ulua which needs more weight to properly load up on the toss. I have a few different versions and love them all. I think the 6490 would fall right in the middle between the CSW1008 and the SS Ulua. It is also a little lighter than the 93H as far as line rating.

    I’ve got both rods,ulua is 10’3”. Tady 45 is my standard jig and the ulua wins the casting contest but when it comes to fighting the fish 6490 takes the W. I bring the 6490 with me more often than the ulua
