Yeah, I know the "favorite jigging rod" question has been raised before, but I'm looking for a little more specific information. I'm thinking of purchasing dedicated jigging rods this year to be used specifically for lings/yelloweye with the thought that there are some big halibut that hang out in the same areas at times. I can get good pricing on Okuma, so I'm primarily interested in them and specifically the Cedros as they are in my price range. If someone thinks there is a far superior rod in the same size and price category I'd be interested in hearing that, but I'm not starting this to hear ALL the information rehashed previously in the other threads.
I guess specifically I'm wondering if anyone uses the Cedros Speed Jig 601M or the 661M and if so what your thoughts are regarding them? Those are the two I'd probably be most interested in getting. I want something that will be a little more exciting to catch lings and rockfish with than my favorite Tica halibut rods, but would also like something that could handle a bigger halibut if someone happened to hook into one. I realize neither of them have a gimbal, but since they're primarily going to be for jigging a gimbal really isn't a prime consideration.
