A good all-around 1/2 oz Jig Rod

Recommended Posts

Here in Pa we throw jigs all year around, it is my confidence bait. What rod do you prefer to use? I am currently using a Berkley Series one 7'-0" MH w/ a revo. A buddy of mine is sponsored by Pure Fishing, so i got good deals on stuff. Now i am looking for a great quality jig rod.

This is an easy one ... G Loomis GLX BCR853 or BCR854.  These rods were made for 1/2 oz. Jigs.

I recommend looking at the St.Croix line of Avids..

AVC70MHF 7', MHF, Line:      12 - 20, Lure: 3/8 - 1oz, Rod weight: 4.7oz, MSRP $180

AVC70HF  7', HF, Line: 14 - 25, Lure: 3/8 - 11/2oz, Rod Weight: 5.0oz, MSRP $190

As a rod builder I have built my jig rods on these blanks... :D

If those are to steep budget wise then I would suggest looking into the MOJO's...

Good Luck & Tight Lines!!!!

I own the G Loomis MBR 844 IMX and its a great 1/2 jig rod. 80% of the jigs I throw are 1/2oz.

I have one, too. It has been my favorite rod for many years.

I recently bought a BCR854 which has a slightly faster tip, but

no one would know unless they fished both rods!

I like the 855 for 1/2oz jigs and up, but th 854 will work too.

After I saw a couple people recommend that rod, I was curious as to what the difference is.  That's good to know.  Thanks for the information

im gonna look into the loomis i think. On the cheaper side, would a crucial or carrot stick make a good jig rod?

Cumara CUC72MH for 12# and 1/2 ounce jigs in light cover.

Cumara CUCX72MH for 15-20# and 1/2 ounce jigs in heavier cover.

Crucial CRC70MH is a good all around jig rod too for a little less.

This is what I use but my opinion is biased  :D

The Loomis MBR844 GLX is a good jig rod to add to the Loomis rods already mentioned above.

I use the Falcon Cara Head Turner for this application. It is a Heavy Power Rod but acts more like a MH. 6'10" is length seems about right for me.

Those are the 2 jig rods that I am using right now.  Light and ultra sensitive with some serious power especially in the CUCX72MH.  That rod is and absolute animal!!!!
