Choosing a jigging rod is like choosing a car.
You choose a car based on your budget and your taste.
I am sure you are not going to choose a new car without any history.
There are many new brand rods by OEM from China and they promote heavily even they never fished with the rods.

OTI rods have been around and many fishermen actually fish with the rods.

Here is a pictures.

760 lb giant with custom BH Cape Cod Special 450g rod


with BH Cape Cod Special 350g rod


260 lb yft with BH Cape Cod Special 250g rod


170 lb yft with BH Cape Cod Special 150g rod


150 lb halibut with BH Cape Cod Special 80g rod.



There are some advantage of using longer jigging rods, especially on party boats.
I can recommend C7'3" Black Hole Challenger Bank 731H model.
The rod is mere 10 oz, but has enough backbone and power.
Here are big bigeye caught with the rod.
