- Medium heavy - heavy jigging prototype rods

 

We originally planned to test rods and lures for Bluefin Tuna but Tuna has been hardly seen in this season and we have decided to test prototype jigging rods for Amberjack instead.


We started testing medium heavy class rods but we had to switch to heavy model soon after because we had some line break with big fish and also we had to bring fish up quickly to avoid sharks to attack them.


KLL extra heavy jigging rod + 280g long jig.

This rod holds 15kg drag pressure at high angle but yet easy to action jigs even in 60m shallow water.
