WTB Saragosa 10K
surfstryker posted a topic in General Buy/Sell/Trade ForumLooking for a used Saragosa 10K. Would love to be under $200 if possible. Intend to use for tuna on the boat so if you have a popping rod to go along with it that would be interesting as well. I'm in NJ, Ocean County.
Opinions pls--Canal Rod and Reel set up--Jigster I think?
Rob greenpond posted a topic in Main ForumHello Folks, Been thinking of upgrading my current canal set up to something nicer/stronger, mean lean--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? 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 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).
