  1. WTS: ODM JIGSTER 11ft 4-10oz $450 located in Worcester, MA
  4. Hello Folks, Been thinking of upgrading my current canal set up (Diawa Coastal SP 11' 3-8oz....more like 1-4 max!) to something nicer/stronger, meaner, leaner--all that stuff. After lots of research I've narrowed down my search to: ODM Jigster 10'-6" 4-10 oz (original rod, not the extreme) and not sure about a reel but maybe a Shimano Saragossa 8000? The new Diawa BG MQ--8000 (black/silver) might also be good--. Both Diawa ($249) and Shimano ($279) about the same price. I really wanted a "single rod that can do both jigs and plugs" well and most importantly--"not too heavy". I usually jig to start out until I see breaking fish or something going on that makes me switch over to plugs. The jigs I use are all the usual canal jigs like Al Gag paddle tails, Savage Sandeels,....etc., ranging 2--5oz mostly and plugs like Stick Shads, Pencil Poppers, Magic Swimmers....etc ranging 2--5oz mostly (same weight as jigs). The question: is this the "best" all around jig/plug do-all-rod (10-6 or 11??) ? I decided on the 10'-6" as a happy medium between a 10' jig rod and an 11' plug rod....also to "reduce weight" and make it easier to balance with a lighter reel. Other question--would the Saragossa 8000 or Diawa BG MQ 8000 balance out nicely with this rod. I would like the balance to be slighly "TIP UP" as this is less tiring on my arms. Thanks in advance for any advice, opinions...etc. Just trying to get it right the first time. -Rob PS. I may use a new Diawa BG 4500 on this rod that I already own until I can make a final decision on the reel (black/gold model).
  5. Hey guys, first time poster here, long time fisherman. Born and raised on Cape Cod, I’ve been fishing for over 20 years, 10 of which I’d consider “serious”, and figured I’d try to make my first post here somewhat interesting and informative. * This past spring I had contacted Lou Caruso about a potential build for an all-around Cape Cod Canal rod. Something similar to a Slingshot 1328 (which I had already owned). Lou being Lou is much more in tune with new companies and the quality of the blanks being released. I told him what I’d be looking for out of a rod, what I threw for plugs/jigs/Swimmers etc, and Lou turned me onto ODM, specifically the 11’ 4-10oz Jigster. He spoke of the incredibly wide range this blank can throw, its ability to lean on fish in the tide, and he thought it would be a perfect fit for what I was looking for. I didn’t want be that guy with 17 rods in his bike, and really wanted to narrow it down to just 2-3 max (one being a lighter schoolie/albie setup). Rated for up to 33 pounds of drag and 4-10oz lures I was expecting this blank to be a heavy telephone pole, and frankly had my doubts. I contacted CMS and had the opportunity to throw their 10’ model with a variety of my stuff, and immediately put a build into place. So after being paired with a Saltiga 6500h, over the next 2 months of fishing I would throw everything from SP minnows (the 1 7/8oz salt pro) to 7.5 oz. Bill Hurley’s (paddle tail included), and even an 8 oz trolling stick shad, jigging, plugging, and taking fish up to 44 pounds in moontides, I can say without question this blank is incredible. I own Century rods, Lamiglas, Cousins/Ron Arra, St. Croix, and TFO and you can see me fishing them in any of my videos. This was the first time I felt compelled to make a video about a product just to show people what it could do. It’s not a technical video, just casting a multitude of plugs and jigs before showing the Jigster take down a #35 on a 3 oz pencil. Don’t let the name fool you, this is not a jigging only rod. A big thanks to CMS for doing such quality work, the seamless transitions and wrapping done is beautiful. So take the video for what it’s worth. This is directed mainly at my fellow canal rats as another potential option to consider. I look forward to becoming a contributing member of this forum!
  6. Hey guys, so I recently got into rod building this past winter. I built a ODM jigster 11’ 4-10 oz and I have been using it so far this season at the canal. I love the rod. very versatile rod but i love it especially for jigging. looking to build another rod that can do both jigging and top water. anyone have recommendations? i was looking at the Surfmachine elite 11’ 2-8 oz or a black hole just for jigging. I have attached some pictures of my jigster below.
  7. Hi everyone im in the market for a saltiga reel and for rods im looking for ODM genesis, ODM frontier, ODM jigster, St croix legends. All rods have to be 10ft or longer please thank you.
