From what I hear the cosmotech would be a good blank for both. I saw Kil using the new reinforced one and it looked quite strong. There are several alternatives depending on what you're looking for. You can take a broomstick-type rod that can easily handle both but will likely beat the angler after long hours of jigging. If you are looking for light weight but enough strength to get the job done, the cosmotech is probably a good choice.
