After a bit of a chat with Awondering at K-Labs and watching a few videos I've decided to have a bit of a crack at slow / micro jigging, so after a couple of weeks I've just picked up my new K-Labs slow jig rod built on Alps hardware and today I took delivery of a nice shiny Shimano 300D Calcutta reel to sit in it...

Looks pretty mint !
