Jigging rod for beginners

saml33
Hello, I am new to jigging and would like to know if anyone could recommend a jigging rod suitable for beginners? Have done some research online but the more I read the more confused I get. Any advice is much appreciated!

    slow-fall jigging or speed jigging?

    These are 2 very different forms of jigging.  To add to confusion, there is micro-jigging too.

    Where are you planning mainly to fish and the fish you are targeting?

    Ok very simple one.

    If you new to jigging and dont want spend a lot of money. And if you're just using normal bottom bait or jigs like 80-150g or even madai.

    get the cheap cheap daiwa blue backer.  less than $100 and butt joint for easy transport and very parabolic more shiok for you to fight fish haha.

    ​No particular preferred style now since I'm still new so I'm open to both speed and slow fall jigging.

    ​For SG and MY a PE0.8-1.5 or 2 will cover almost all the jig weight needed.
    I have been using a Zerak light tamer PE1 on a 2500 Biomaster for my go to setup.
    I will also bring a PE1-3 along.
    2 setup to cover everything.
    The 2 rod could be a rod that cast heavu sinling lure if you are going Rompin.

    Sweet, thanks for the advice. I just came across a teaser for this new rod extension Jigbutt which will be launched in May. Thinking it may come in handy as I will only need to bring along one rod. What do you think? Here's the teaser for your reference https://www.facebook.com/1847205598884054/videos/2065856527018959/

    dont go too light, or u will get scolding from fellow anglers

    pe1 can handle any pelagic fish but the boat need to go chase after your line, which means other anglers will curse n swear at u

    bottom u need pe4 because of sinker size and to power crank the grouper up
