if you had a 3/8 OZ tube jig and a 3 inch tube rigged up would you fish it with your baitcasting set up or spinning set up?

I prefer spinning for sure, but I just don't throw 3/8 very often on tube rigs... So, if I'm throwing a T-rig tube, 3/8 or 1/2 then yea, I'm using a BC set-up..

There's no reason you can't throw these on spinning, I just like lighter jig rigs myself.

cool so in my case I'd use the baitcaster, and yea it's a little heavier than ushual.

I don't use a tube jig with that weight, if I'm throwing a 3" tube it will be with a 3/16oz jig at the most. If I do use that kind of weight regardless the lure, I'm going to use a casting set up.

now that i think about it I'll just rig them with a 1/4 oz tube jig seeing how it's the smallest I've got and dont want it to sink like a mega stone haha.

I think it depends on what you are using the tube for.  If you are planning on dragging the tube on the bottom, deeper than 10' or so, you better use a 3/8 oz jig head, or it will take forever to drop to the bottom.  Me, I'd probably go half ounce in that situation.  In that situation, rig wise, I'd probably use one of my 6.5 or 7' MH spinning rigs with light braid or 10 lb fluorocarbon.  If you're pitching a 3" tube into cover, a 3/8 oz tube jig is probably wrong.  I think that the open hook would hang up too much, be more trouble than it is worth.  If you got to go 3/8 (for whatever reason, probably distance & drop speed)  Charlie Brewer makes a 3/8 oz tx rig jig head in both a regular hook and wide gap hook styles.  I'd go with bait caster and 15 or 17 lb fluorocarbon for this approach.  If you aren't totally married to the idea of throwing a 3" tube, I think that throwing a 4" or 5" tube into cover makes more sense, in that the slightly heavier bait would be easier to pitch and I don't think it would make much difference in how much you got bit.  I'm pretty sure that other companies make 3/8 oz and heavier tx rig jig heads, Brewer heads are the ones that I have the most experience with.
