Default need a new setup for jigging

My current setup for jigging is an penn silverado 8000 sv on a ugly stik tiger lite jigging rod with 80# braid with a 100# 2' steel cable but im always getting broke off or the paint is coming off the jigs. What is your solution to repainting the jigs and what do i need to change about my setup on the jigs? thanks for any advice.

You don't need to repaint just use reflective tape on the sides. What are you getting cut off with? Rigs, wrecks, toothy critters?

didnt think about using reflective tape thats a great idea, were getting cut off by those toothy kings they chew it slap in two as well as the string that attaches the hooks to the o-ring.

Kings are so stupid there is really nothing you can do to be 100 % fool proof. I tried the tyger wire and it didn't work 100% either. When the kings move in thick I just go to el cheapo jigs because you are going to sacrifice some to the wreckless fish.

Didn't the wire cut down on your bites too? It cut my bites in half at least, then speed jigging is tough enough and then to not get as many bites makes it even harder.

There is no better way that I'm aware of.

I tried the wire rig but nill hook ups on my targeted species...I just move on when the toothy critters show...Last year a stupid shark hit my jig...fought him for 30 minutes and got my expensive butterfly jig back.
Should've just cut him off early in the fight as after I got my jig back I was done jiging for the day...lol

Oops, I thought the shark pic still had my jig in its mouth when the pic was taken...
