As with any type of fishing, there is never one rod that will suit all occasions. A good jigging rod must be light, have a parabolic action and strength for lifting. Parabolic rods are easier to jig in the Japanese style, they also help the angler fight big fish and are needed for braided line.
Depending on the jigging style and reel type employed, rod lengths can vary. Most novice jiggers will begin with an existing longer rod, graduating into a specialist rod later.
