We had a thread a while back about halibut rods and reels. I am here to report that my new rig will handle butts to roughly 120 lbs with ease and won't tire you out jigging all day.
It is a Sea Magic 400 gram jigging rod made here in Texas with a Penn Fathom 25N (rated 30# drag) loaded with 290 yds of 80# Moimoi blue braid. The rod weighs 10 ounces and is rated for 80 - 200 lb braid. The reel weighs 20 ounces. Less than 3 lbs fully loaded.
