Default Carrot Stix E21

Just purchased the new carrot stix e21 spinning reel jigging pole. Are there any comments on them for people who have used them? It says it is good for 60-100ib braid. I just need some personal opinions before I take t offshore to see if it breaks.

they sure do look cool. it really depends on what type of jigging your going to do. if your plan is to drop speed/vertical jigs for aj's i think you are in trouble. i have used the inshore rods and they are not strong when used with braid. mine broke i got a new 1 and sold it. let us know how it does.

I have to agree with the above posts. I have a jiggin carrot stix and its great for bouncin lead heads but as far as vertical jigging, im not impressed. They will break if you high stick them. As far as braid ratings, go as close to the lowest pond rating and use a quarter of that as safe drag. Hope that thelps... Merry Christmas!
