Daiwa 4000 reel, rod to match

edited December 2015 in Jigging & Popping
Am so used to the reel of Daiwa 2500-3500 size, cos been fishing in local and Malaysia water mostly. Planning a further jigging trip. Some back ground of the fishing game.
Fishing depth about 60-130m.
Jig to use about 80-170g
Line about PE 2-3
Reel should be a Daiwa 4000 class. A Catalina or Saltiga 4000?
Any recommendation for a jigging rod to match?

    Can I ask what is the PE rating for the rod you are using?

    If you are using a PE1-3 rod, a size 3000-3500 reel would be just nice.

    A PE1.5-4 rod I would paid with a Size 4000 reel.

    As for the model, depends on how deep your pocket is.

    I am using a 4000 Catalina paired with a PE1-3 rod. The reel is a little on the bigger side when paired with the rod but i like the spare line and extra drag that comes with it.

    Just my 2cents worth.

    Hope this helps.
