Thanks for the quick replies guys.

 

I want this rod! I'm gonna make one this winter. Ultimate ditch jiggin' stick.

 

I might even make two, one conventional and one spinning.

 

These ditch spinning guys make me jealous!

I've got the conventional in a factory built.... It's awesome.. I can hit 150 yards with a 4 oz metal and nearly that with 8 and bait.... very light.. very versatile and VERY strong..

If you are gonna mostly use 2 to 4 Jigs , use the 1208 blank. The 1209 is for guys who plan to use 4 to 6 OZ jigs.

 

My bread and butter is the 3 OZ jig. It does depend on the tail with bigger tails needing heavier jigs but I use 75 percent 3 and 25 percent 4 so I would prefer the 1208.

I throw mostly 4-5 oz. in the canal. I'd like to be able to throw six for those special times tongue.gif

 

I'm going to rig it up spinning. I hate being left out.

 

I've seen some of the breakaway models with the wrong size guide like two or three from the top. Not a huge deal, but if you are anal and crazy like me it is a big enough isse to make me wrap my own.

 

I started a new thread for guides and spacing recc.
