I have AMF 350gr jigging rods for spinning reels with Okuma Makaira 20K on them. For conventionals I run accurate valiant 2 speeds on Century 450gr acid wrapped rods. You're welcome to check out any of them sir.

I have to chuckle,Andy has no boat but plenty of tuna gear. Gup has a boat and no tuna gear? For what it's worth Ray,get yourself a spinning rod from Ralph Craft and use it for jigging too. You can't use a jigger to cast with. Then bend over and spill big money on a reel. The makaira is great and so is the Avet raptors. For spinning buy a vs or stella.
