One of the best rod for NY, NJ striper jigging rod
It's fine rod for the price.
I think this hard blank is good for striper fishing.
But, I wish Diawa used lighter handle grip material.
It's light rod but handle weight kills this rod.
I use 120g-160g jig for this rod.

It's fine rod for the price.
Only little hard for tip action.
And I wish Diawa used lighter handle grip material.
It's light rod but handle weight kills this rod.
I use 80g-100g jig so I can give a good action.
