These Rods are designed for both beginners and seasoned anglers. While these types of rods were originally designed for vertical jigging they are now used for many diffrerent jigging applications as well as bottom and drift fishing. Their short length and power also makes them ideal for kayak fishing. Components include Fuji guides and high quality graphite rod blanks. Designed and tested with Star's 50+ years of experience, we feel that these rods are the best value in their class.

Great rod and Great Price
March 15, 2021
Most of my rods are either Shimano and a couple of G loomis, but watching a video on youtube I came across this rod. It was paired with a Daiwa BG 6000. From the angler's POV it seems as a balanced outfit. If you are like me, im sure you realized by now that Shimano runs their reels a bit smaller and Daiwa on the other hand, runs them on the larger size.... for instance a 5000 size Daiwa its about a 10000 size in Shimano.

In my opinion this rod has great quality and an awesome price. Yet I will pair it with a 4500 size reel from Daiwa in order to achieve a balanced set that wont get you exhausted in a day of vertical jigging.
ProsPrice, quality, value, the looks of the rod are sweet

Haven’t had the opportunity to fish with it yet. But as soon as I grabbed it. It felt very light. You can see quality components. Bought everything at Excellent price and service. I’ve paired it with a Penn spinfisher V8500. Spooled 600 yards 50lbs power pro braided line. With a wind on leader momio 80lbs monofilament tied a ball bearing swivel at the end. Ready for bottom fishing. And for jigging. Will change the wind on leader to 50 lbs. and fluorocarbon leader of 30 lbs for jigging.
ProsVery light for being extra heavy Quality that you can feel

Honestly I haven't had the chance to fish it yet but it was highly recommended by a friend that has several of them. My wife and I have couple trips planned beginning in May (Grouper) and I bought this for her and paired it with a Penn Battle 3 DX 8000. I'm gonna see if I can get her a first taste of reef donkey. I just hope she doesn't let go of it.
ProsPrice, highly recommended by good friends

Can't beat these for the price! Love them for wreck fishing and jigging for blackfin tuna - can handle most anything you can throw at them.

Right choice - great Jigging rod
June 4, 2018
I was looking for a good set-up to fish Porgies and Sea Bass for our annual six-pack. Did some research on a good rod and reel, I liked this rod with the Okumo azures 65S as a combo. It did not disappoint me. The rod action was good and heavy enough for bigger fish, the reel was super smooth and comfortable, great set-up for the price. This rod and reel is perfect for jigging.

Star rods Rock!
October 18, 2016
I'm 75% complete on rod change out. And Star Rods are my new goto's.. Not one has failed, and I love these jigging rods for everyday use. Flounder, striper, sea bass, weakies, they tackle them all if you know how to load them up. Few canyon runs and the larger ones tackle 50-100# tuna no problem.
Prosgreat feel, small diameter for # rating.
ConsSingle color available.

Love Star Rods

I had a lighter star rod paired up with a Avet feel for jigging, worked good but had a lot of bend. Bought this rod as a replacement because it was stiffer. I use the pairing to vertical jig for grouper, scamp, snapper, etc.. This combo is great. I pulled up 15-20 grouper with no issue and two nice scamp from 200+ feet. Also a couple big snapper we had to throw back (since they are endangered and elusive) 👎. Great replacement and pairing.
ProsStiffness Lightweight Plays well with the Avet

Great Jigging Rod
May 10, 2016
Short and compact, just what I like on my boat. This rod packs plenty of power to muscle fish around. I used as soon as I got it for some early season Striper fishing. Chucking bunker with 5 oz weight was no problem. Only 1 fish but it was easily handled.
Has a good balance mated with AVET MXL reel.

Is this rod too heavy for fluke fishing with a 3/4 ounce bucktail? I am looking for a short rod to fish from my jet ski
1 Answer
Yes, all of these models would be way too heavy for lures of that size. You will want to find an inshore rod that lists a lure rating that includes lures in the 3/4 oz range.

Hey guys I have a question. Can this rod handle a shark from land? I want to pair this rod with a spinfisher v 10500 I see it can handle line anywhere from 50-200lb braid but will it handle 6-7 foot shark on sand? I have a boat also so I'm looking for a hybrid rod that I can carry it's own weight from A peer, sand, and Boat for BIG game mostly peer fishing (kayaking bait out)
1 Answer
I would recommend the XH models of the Star Aerial Jigging Rods for landing big sharks from land.
