  1. Hi all, So I was at Red Top yesterday and decided my current canal beginner rod is just not strong enough (Diawa Coastal SP 11’, 3-8 oz——max jig weight is 3.5 oz and lobbing maybe 4 tops!). Option #1: I started out looking at a new jig rod thinking I’d use the SP rod for just plugs, so with minimal choices in shop liked the Tsumani Elite 10’ 3-6 ($199) and was told it can jig the whole range...I believe it too. Option#2: Next looked at a Shimano Speedmaster 11’ 2-6 MH ($150)....was told this rod is the best value in the shop and can cast the whole range too. This rod seems like a hybrid plugging and jigging—-be nice to carry only one rod for both jigging ...2 to 6 oz (mostly 3–4 oz). Then just retire the SP coastal to beach fishing as it’s a nice rod. What do you guys think between the above options #1 and #2? Is there a better way to go ? Are there better plugging or better jigging rods for a reasonable price ....under $300 unless super fantastic.....for the canal? Thanks for any opinions or guidance Rob
