Hitting the Blue Water to jig for hard fighters is one of the most exciting forms of our sport. It is also one of the more rigorous. Depending on the jig you are using or the techniques you employ, at day out jigging requires some pretty significant effort. Another factor often associated with jigging, is the cost associated with kitting up with high performance quality.
The new Shimano Maikuro Jigging Rods address a few issues here. Firstly, they are super lightweight, taking out a significant amount of the effort required, therefore mitigating against fatigue. Secondly, Maikuro fishing rods provide excellent performance with a price tag that is very sympathetic to those on a really tight budget. Every angler can kit up with awesome quality for much less with Shimano Maikuro Jigging Rods.
Selecting a jigging rod will be determined by the weight you wish to fish. Check the specs below as there is a significant difference in weight capacity between the light jig model and the heavy. Our recommendation is to take advantage of the significantly low price and purchase both models, therefore having the light and heavy bases covered. The reason is simple. There are times when conditions for light jigging are perfect, with big fish feeding high under calm weather. Other times, light won’t cut it, and you need to combat weather, and also send hefty jigs much deeper, much faster to hit the feeding zone. With both rods at hand, you’re ready for anything.
Don’t be confused by the low price. The Maikuro is all about performance in a rod sporting some of the finest Shimano technology. Put one or if your budget allows, a couple in your basket now for fast delivery.
