Redesigned for 2021, the newest evolution of Shimano Game Type J Spinning Jigging Rods utilize cutting-edge blank technology to further push the limits of what a jigging rod is capable of. Featuring unprecedented strength and responsiveness, the newest Game Type J Jigging Rod series is designed for anglers who look to expand the ever-changing boundaries within the world of jigging. The new Game Type J Rods integrate Shimano's patented Hi-Power X and Spiral-X Core technologies for rod blanks that perform flawlessly under the most demanding circumstances. Spiral X construction consists of multiple layers comprised of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions, resulting in enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This construction results in an extremely responsive rod that allows for instant power transmission while casting or jigging, and greatly enhances fish fighting capabilities. Spiral X blanks are 250% more structurally rigid and 180% less prone to twisting than standard blank construction. Offering only the finest of components to compliment these state-of-the-art blanks, models with power ratings Medium-Light through Medium-Heavy feature Shimano Ci4+ Reel Seats, which are comfortable, extremely light, and are among the most sensitive reel seats available. Models rated as Heavy through XX-Heavy incorporate Fuji reel seats for increased durability when fighting on giant fish. All models are wrapped with lightweight and extremely durable Fuji SiC guides built to withstand the most extreme drag pressures. When it comes to a wide variety of jigging techniques for both pelagic and reef fish, the Game Type J paired with Shimano's flagship series of jigging tackle has no equal.

Which model would you recommend for a Shimano Saragosa 10000PG ? 
1 Answer
I would consider the strength of braid you're using when deciding which rod fits your reel best. The Xheavy 5'3 is rated for 100 lb braid, while the 6'4 medium light is rated for 30 lb braid. Each model falls into a specific braided line rating and that is important when deciding which rod to pair with your reel. Take a look at the braid ratings for each rod under the "Order Chart" section and decide which action you prefer, a heavier, stiffer action rod designed for braided line in the 60-100 lb range, or a lighter action rod with more bend designed for thinner, lighter braid in the 30-50 lb range.
