Q&A: Effective Lure Range Weight for Jigging Rod


"I'm interested in your Black Hole USA Cape Cod Special 1 piece vertical jigging rod. Can't decide between the 250gr or the 350gr. What are the effective lure range weight for each? How many grams up and down from the specified lure weight for each? Barely getting into vertical jigging."


"Rule of thumb is 20 percent over the rating  That means 250g can handle 300g and 350g can handle 420g. but we normally use 150g - 200g jigs for the 250g and 350g rods for tuna."
