Default Pompano Rod Action?

Looking to get a light jig rod for pompano, specifically looking at the Star Stellar Lite. Should I get the normal action or extra fast taper version?

Absolutely love the Stellar Lite series, but I can't say as to which rod I'd recommend for pitching jigs at pomps. Hopefully someone who does that on the regular will chime in.

Pier or surf? For pier or jetty, faster actions will do great including the star stellar lite.

For beach, I use longer, slower actions like those you find with "Steelhead" rods. You can get a wide variety of lengths and actions. I've also used custom rods I've made using fly and crappie blanks. These rods will allow you to throw smaller jigs much further.

If you plan on jigging pomps from one of the piers, I'll give you a huge tip before you waste money on an awesome rod that you keep bangin the butt against the rail with.....make sure you find a lite rode with a short butt stock.
