Default Newbie Jigging Gear

Hey guys I think im going to try some jigging Sat.. What is a good inexpensive rod/reel combo to try to learn on.. probably going with butterfly jigs and 30-50 lb PP or suffix.

Unless you have a better suggestion

You can't get one before this weekend but I recommend you check out Barefoot rods on ebay. They cost less and have way more backbone than shimano. I have 2 shimanos ans 1 barefoot and I say the barefoot hands down. Also check into hopper rods.

torium 16 with 80 power pro on a heavy action 6 foot trevala, nothing better unless you want to get into alutecnos, torsas, or accurates. look on ebay there is some good deals.

mike i have a Torium 30 you can try this weekend. if you like it you can get one for your self. i love mine they will pull a truck and still able to cast a live bait or jig. i have it matched with a evolution jigging rod. pulled in some nice AJ's with it but no monsters. i have seen with my own eyes on the boat recess these reels kick some monster azz!

just wondering, why use the 30 if you can shave ounces off with a 16? they have the same drag and same guts, technically, the 16 would be stronger...

josh im not sure maybe more line. i dont go offshore to much so when invited to go out with recess i watched first hand what these reels can do! they were using the 30. i will check out the 16. seems like it would be better for jigging. i mainly use mine to pull out groupers.
