For rod- Calstar Graphiter 700H. I and 2 other friends use this rod for jigging tuna at the canyons and cod in MA. It's good for 6 to 12 oz jigs. This rod supports up to 20lbs of drag ( I usually fish around 15lbs of drag)
For reel trinidad 30, trinidad 40, or 600 series newell.
Hope this helps- Albert
