black hole jigging rods with fast taper?
Posted 14 September 2011 - 09:25 AM
Now, 350g rod can easily handle 450++ gram softbaits (that I use) I know it's probably not recommended.... still with this weight the rod feels pretty stiff. I think that if I had a fast taper the tip of the rod would be softer and I could more easily get a good movement on the softbait (instead of using technics to get a good movement with the stiff tip of the rod)...?
Now Kil, do you have plans on getting a softer tip on some of the black holes while not loosing it's tremendous backbone (that I need for lifting) or do you or anybody else know anything that can be a good rod for this application? I have looked into spinal with fast taper and I have heard that the OTI fathom blade has a soft tip. but you (jignpop) don't carry any of these
The reason why I ask you Kil is that I am very pleased with the rods from you and the whole buying process so I intend to shop from you the next time. (high end jigging equipment is narrow in Norway)
best regards, Thor

Fast action BH rods are in the process and they will be introduced next season.
I know fast action rods are more popular than parabolic rods. However, I am a big fan for parabolic rods especially targeting big fish. That is why I started with parabolic Black Hole Cape Cod Special.
Now, it is time to introduce fast/moderate BH Cape Cod Special rods for those who prefer fast action rods.
The new project for next season is two-piece jigging rods for travelers.
As airline regulations are getting tighter, you have to pay as much as $200 - $400 for
a trip by air. We are thinking about fitting 250g, 350g and 450g to the one butt section so that you can carry three different rods with one butt section.

How about the idea of using conventional rod and spinning rod with one butt section.
Awesome and innovative idea! Travel jigging rods are great but having three rods with only four pieces is incredible idea and hope it works out.
We are working on it.
