- Prototype jigging rods

- Prototype jigs

 

We developped quite a few prototype jigging rods and brought them to field testing


6.4ft prototype jigging rod

Very easy to action jigs and great control when fish is on with ability to fight in higher angle


6.1ft prototype jigging rod

Same rod I caught 21kg Kingfish on last trip

I like this rod for swimming jig action as well as ability to fight in higher angler to control fish easily
