I got the ss ulua in 9'3" I love that thing. I got a Newell p338 on there with 40 lb big game. Perfect combo. Only thing I woulda changed is the cord wrap I put on there. Go cork. Well worth it. There is one being sold on the classifieds section for 130 get on it!

I don't personally like Ulua's too much. The GG's definitely lighter but if you're looking for something strictly for Alijos, go with the Ulua. I fish a GG90J with a 332, 40 pound definitely not Big Game, Izor all the way. I'd definitely put a different reel on it for longer trips.

I think you could kick a yellows ass on both rods but the GG's more comfortable to fish all day unless you're 6'4"

Samganns got the sweet setup,
I've got both and while they are both excellent jig rods, when I go on any trip below San Martin, the GG90J stays home. The GG can fish 40# all right but not 50#. If you're throwing surface iron at Benitos, Chesters, Lupe, Alijos etc, you want to fish 50# and the Ulua is the right jig stick for the heavy string. It also throws the big jigs like super 7X and super 6x much better than the lighter rods. I'm kind of partial to the 93H-10'.

    i have all three seeker cex composite extreme uluas
    10' baby, 10' 93-10, 9'3"
    the 6480 cex, gf800xh calstar
    all with seine cord
    the composite uluas are light as a feather, strong as hell
    the recoil of the ulua is what you're after
    i could rail rod a cow on the thing
    the 90j? 30lb stick, local stuff
    i'm 5'8"
    ain't no thang

    something that floats
    Im 5'7", and slingin the 9'3" like im rick jamessss bitch!!!

    you can make up for the butt by putting a smaller reel on it... Best thing is to go to a tackle shop and put some reels on the rod..I used to have a jx on mine, and i liked it alot.. sold it to go fishing!

    If you are throwing light top water jigs and artificials go full 10 foot SS Ulua. The SS material really makes a difference in the recoil and casting ability. My opinion is the shorter Ulua in the SS material is a bit stiff for your application but will still do the job. If you are throwing heavier jigs then the shorter Ulua will be fine but there might be some better choices.
    The full 10 foot gives you more options and bang for the buck. JMHO

    Jamie's right when it comes to jiggin
    the 10' ulua and the 9'3" are the same rods
    the gf800xh can do that for you
    it just get's you away from 9+ which really aint no thang
    has the thinner blank and similar recoil properties of an ulua/ss6480xh
    so, an everything rod, it's new to calstar, flexible tip,a stout sombitc.....

    90J's definitely not a 30lb stick bud. Don't know what's in that Valley Crest fertilizer but I think it's getting to you.
