Default Newest Jig Stick - 350 Conventional

Check out my new jig stick. I have been wanting a show stopper and I think I have come up with the perfect design scheme for my taste.

It is still unfished, but I have very high expections that it will perform very well. Just need to fill it with 80lb boat braid and go.

Specs:

Builder: Anglers Envy with Abalone Inlay
Blank: Spinal 350g
Reel Seat: Pack Bay

Reel: JM PE8
Color: Gunmetal
Option: Limited Edition with silent docking



If you like conventionals, eat your heart out.

why are the eyes twisted? I have noticed this before but didnt have anyone to ask. I have a Paul Darby surf rod that has the tip eye twisted. I have been planing to go back and ask him (I didnt notice it when I bought it) but I never have.....David

When you apply pressure to a conventional overhead rod, each guide actually acts as a mini lever, causing the blank to actually twist one way or another. Most folks don't see this, because they aren't pushing the limits of their tackle, or they only see the broken rod. You don't have this with spinners, but get line twist as a trade off.

By acid wrapping the rod, it allows the blank to perform naturally while allowing me to use conventional tackle. It also allows the angler to use lighter blanks that will load under the weight of the jig, but still have the balls for the bigger fish when they come. Also, since the pressure is straight down, the rod doesn't twist in your hand when loaded, so its much easier on the angler.

Hope that helps explain it.
Jim

I see now that the oil has stopped, things will start to clear off and I will have to come back down and take you school again.

I might even let you take my new stick for a round or two.

If your lucky.

She's ready for a wind on. I guess this is only the 10th one of these limited edition reels ever made?


Almost full

Builders Mark (Which I feel is a little overstated.) I didn't spec any different, but will for the next one. I have always liked cars with no logos. Yeah I'm a pain, but custom is custom.
Don't worry Kevin, I'm still in love with it. Overstated on this one is a relative term

Those guides don't seem to be very stout. I am guessing they are Pac Bay. It looks like their are only two transition guides that take the guides from the top of the rod to the underside. I have always been intrigued by these spiral wrapped rods but figured there was some complex way of gradually turning the guides that was beyond my feeble mind. I think I will rewrap one of my Trevala rods using this spiral wrap. Thanks for putting up the pics.
