Hey guys, been looking at micro jigging rods for when summer rolls round again. Was wondering what you recommend and if you have any experience with the Abu Garcia Salty Stage 80g or the Storm Gomoku Erito? Cheers.

"Micro jigs" are from 14g to about 60. Then they seem to be called a pitch jig after that... I guess it goes with the Miro sentiment. just be sure you know what your buying for as either way wont work as well as expected

Thanks for all the help guys. I kinda know what I want the rod to do. I want something to cast and work jigs from 10grams to about 40 grams. (all my fishing is shallow as). The Abu Garcia Salty Stage looks to be a nice rod in the lighter size. Just not sure if it can cast the 40ish gram jigs tho (casting being very different to jiging)
