Another vote for a dedicated overhead rod for the slow jigs and micro jigs.

I find the dedicated setup particularly useful with the micro and small flutter jigs which tend to get as many hits on the drop. Being able to thumb the line as it drops and engage quickly is a real advantage over a spinning outfit. I am running an Okuma Nano Matrix pared with the narrow body Metaloid, think its just over 6 foot but with a very light action at the tip. For me the softer rod help give the lures a much more natural/smoother action when lifting and help absorb a bunch of energy when the fish are just nibbling at slow jigs.

Thanks for the advice.....I might have to do some research. I think I'll take some time to figure out exactly what I want, save my pennies and buy a decent sort of a set up to run the jigs properly.....in the meantime though I'll give it a bloody good nudge on the softbait rods. Cheers!
