So I have my jig stick, I like it, but don't love it. I fish the psw909hxj. Paired with my TranX HG. I just don't feel like its a true jig stick. Its light, but has a pretty stiff tip. Just looking to see what your thoughts are on this rod. I see a lot of them. Debating on posting mine up for trade. Any input/opinions are greatly appreciated!
What avet do u use?Can't go wrong with a calstar 90j or 100j! I own a 90j and have fished it for years and love it! Truly designed for fishing so cal yellows, I am going to be purchasing a calstar 100j mag, it is a 10ft composite blank, hhvery light and has great back bone for pulling on slug yellows! I use a avet if on my 90j and will use a shimano torium 20 on the 100 mag! Hope this helps
You need to buy some JRI irons.For years I loved my GG90J. It took sometime to learn how to load it up to maximize for distance. I paired it with a Trinidad 20 DC. I found it perfect for casting 7Xs. By the way, I only throw 7X, I got tired of buying 45s that would not swim. I was introduced to a Teramar TMC 90 XH a few years back and found it to be very similar to the GG90J but much lighter. I now pair that with a high speed Tranx for straight spectra. I have replaced the GG90J with a Teramar TMC 100XH. It is my go to 40# mono jig stick with the Trinidad 20 DC. The new Teramars are very different. It took me many years and multiple rods to find the ones that work best for me. If you can find an old 9' or 10' Teramar XH you might find it right for you too.
I use a avet jx mc on my 90j I can get it out a good 70 yards with no wind, it casts good for a lever drag I only fish Avets this torium is my first shimano I'm stokedWhat avet do u use?
I've had my torium 20 for a month or so and it cast great. Right now it's on my sd8 pinhead and I can cast out my 100 yard topshot of 40# izorline xxx. I think it'll kill on that 100mag! I'm building super seeker white tiger 7x for my torium then I want either 90j or 100j blank to build another little heavier jigstick
Avet's r nice reels. And I can cast those pretty far but still prefer star drag for jig reel. The torium is a bad ass jig reel. Mine has a 150 yard topshot and on my 8' pinhead d8 I can get 100 yards out. Once I put it on my white tiger 7x I'll really be able to sling it far. U will love the reel it's smooth good drag and casts like a dream. My spool tension knob is backed off almost all the way I don't like any restrictions besides my thumbI use a avet jx mc on my 90j I can get it out a good 70 yards with no wind, it casts good for a lever drag I only fish Avets this torium is my first shimano I'm stoked
