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.

Does your incessant whining make you feel better? How about you just shut the hell up and suck it up? It's a fishing forum , so please just stop.

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.
