Tog jigging rod

Looking for some input on a new tog jigging rod. I’ve been using a tsunami slow pitch mh & H paired with either my stradic 4K or bg 3k for the past few seasons and while I can’t say anything bad about the combos I think I’m ready for an upgrade. Anyone have experience with any of the jigging world rods/blanks in particular the shogun ML? Thanks in advance!

I've been using  my nexus for tog jigging. It does a  great job. It has handled multiple 10# class tog without any problem.

Dont know abt your price range. But i used two UglyStick Tiger Elite and they do hold their ground.

 

Higher end can go for Zenaq or Tenryu. If u can find a JM Three Kings, grab it while its there.

I feel like the ISS845FTSWS would be perfect looking at the specs. Do you happen to know if the factory rods are suitable for tog jigging or would I have to go custom?

I like the specs on on the JM 3k UL but the rod length at only 5’4 is a little to short for my liking.

Yes, they would be fine

I’m gonna give my Albie rod a try this year...  St. Croix Avid Inshore 7’6” MHF with a Stradic 5000FK spooled with 20# braid.  I wanted to try it today, but the trip got blown out because of the wind. :(

Mine doubles as an albie rod too.

Just curious, what is the best level drag reel now for jigging?


When it comes to jigging, specifically for Tog, I think most are using spinning reels in the 3000 - 4000 size.

 

As far as a specific conventional lever drag jigging reel, I’d go with something nice and light, like a Seigler SGN or an Accurate BV-300.
