Last spring I started jigging with a very lightweight Powell Max casting rod EF682C and I've never had a more sensitive rod. It's still serving me well, but I'm always looking to improve on a good thing. I'm thinking I might try to talk a local custom builder into taking on the project, but from the few I've talked to I haven't sensed much interest. (Yuk yuk, it's tough being out front of the curve!) The characteristics of this style is no cork in front or behind the reel seat & extra-fast action. Anyway, there are two off-the-rack rods that I've found with similar characteristics, both are 6'8, Med weight, extra-fast action: Shimano Cumara, St. Croix Legend Tournament. Any opinions on these rods or does anyone know of another maker with a similar rod?
