I want to hear what y'all have to say about a dedicated all around jig/t. rig setup, money is of no issue cause I am just playing around/researching right now and not looking to buy something anytime soon. My current jig rig is a G. Loomis IMX MBR 843C 7' MH with a Curado 200E7 and suffix 832 #20 braid w/ approx 15 feet of Seaguar Invizx #12 floro as leader. My soft plastics t. rig rod is a G. Loomis NRX 802C 6'8" M XF with a Core 50MG7 and #12 Seaguar invizx florocarbon. I absolutely love both of these setups, but was thinking about trading the NRX in for the MH version (803C I believe). What do you think?

My all around Jig Rods/Soft Plastics - 853C GLX, and 854C GLX.  I personally like a 7' rod though, but these are my two "go to" Jig/Plastics rods.  - Ci4+ on the 853C and 50MG on the 854C.

My favorite rig is a GLX MBR842C/ Core 50MG/ Tatsu #12 dedicated to swim jigs and small, soft swimbaits.

However, I think the tip is too soft for bottom contact. These are my traditional jig rigs: GLX MBR844C/ CTE

200GT/ Tatsu #20, BCR854/ Curado 200E/ Kanzen braid with #20 Tatsu leader, BCR893/ Curado 50E/ Tatsu

#12. I will probably replace all of these over time with the comparable NRX version.

If you want to send one of those replaced GLX's my way, I wouldn't complain  :tongue5:

For jigs in the 1/2 to 3/4 range I use a Dobyn's DX745 paired with a Chronarch Ci+ (usually for brush jigs) with 20# Sunline

For jigs 1/4 to 3/8 i use a Lamiglas Infinity 735 with a Lew's Tournament Pro with 14 to 17 lb flouro

Football jigs I use the Power Tackle Football Jig Special which is a 7ft6 MH paired with a Curado 200E7 and 16# Sunline

BCR854GLX......I have a couple of them and they are always with me!

 

Reels are Shimano 7:1 or higher.  Right now is a Chronarch 200e7 on one and a Metanium XG on the other.  Might try my new ci4 on one next.  I am always experimenting!

Darn!   With that kind of budget there is no sense in me mentioning what I use for jigs.  I'd be laughed off the forum.  :cry4:

HA, this is where I usually will spend money on a rod too..bottom contact.  Even though an ET or Aetos probably is just fine.  It's just that when I first bought the GLX I was like in "Heaven" on how it feels to handle and even better to fish with.  I am hoping to convince my wife for my birthday to get me a NRX 893C, what she is saying now.  Sell some of your equipment, I looked at her like she was a blasphemer asking me to commit a sin.

I think "catching" has very little to do with equipment, but it makes the other

99% of "fishing" more fun. That said, gear "might" compliment a fisherman's

skills, but whether that marginal difference is worth the price is a personal

matter.

This is great guys, let's keep it going....and it doesn't matter if you have "junk" gear as someone said earlier; it took me some time and a deployment to build the gear I have up from a Zebco 5'6" combo rod  :grin:. If it works for you then that's all that counts!

Well my "junk" as I stated before is:

 

Shimano curado 51E spooled with 20lb Power Pro braid, and a 12 or 15lb flouro leader on an Abu Garica 7' M Vendetta...........I use this for 3/16, 5/16, finesse jigs.

 

Abu Gen 2 Revo. STX, spooled with 30lb Power Pro, and a 15,17, or 20lb fluro leader on an Abu Garcia 7'6" MH Vendetta.........."GP" jig work with 3/8-3/4 oz. jigs

 

Abu Gen 1 Revo STX, spooled with 50lb Power Pro, and a 17, or 20lb flouro leader on an Abu Garcia 7'6" H Vendetta.............heavy cover, flipping and pitching jig work.

Dude, my most expensive rods are IMX´s, I used to own a GLX and I swear, other than a slight difference in weight I felt absolutely no difference between it and an IMX .... I don´t think I will ever replace my IMX´s for something more expensive like GLX´s or NRX´s, if I can´t feel the difference I see no point in spending 100+ bones in upgrading. For spinnerbaiting, crankbaiting n´such I fish with GL2´s , so don´t feel bad, wanna know something ? I can whup some rear end using a beer can as gear.
