    Default Jig rod

    Put me a jig rod together from old stuff I had laying around in the garage I found a 6' ft lightning rod that felt about right and a old black/gold 10 spinning real which I took apart and cleaned now the Question what would you spool it with, I will only be casting 1/32 and 1/16 jigs with it. Bought some 10lb spider wire with 3lb dia, but will put some thing else on it. Thanks.

    4lb line if the rod is lite action .... 6lb line if the rod is med/lite or med action

    I like Vicious hi-vis copolymer and have it on all of my jig casting rods (6lb test).

    Use whatever youíre comfortable with. I donít care to use braided line for panfishing. Any four pound mono will do.
