What to buy or have built?

Looking at purchasing or having built a new jigging rod.
Wanting something with a lot of backbone(80-120# class), fairly light, 1 piece, spinning, and fairly short(5'6"-6'). Would be outfitted with a cabo 80 or 100 loaded with JB 100 HC.
Uses: all around jigging, horsing large grouper and AJs out of rigs if necessary, and tuna jigging/chunking.
$400 ceiling.
What are your recommendations.
BTW, I'm looking at heavy duty as I already have a few setups in the midsize range. Wont hurt(IMO) to have a hardcore heavy duty handy.

I use the 400g for heavy fishing and the 500g for purely meat hauling here in the gulf

We are a manufacturer. Our blanks are Toray carbon and moderately fast in action. I designed them for use around our oil rigs and for better boat side control. If you prefer parabolic action, JM and Black Hole might be more suited for you. Both sell blanks and are top quality.

Thanks, Ernest, for the input.
I already have 2 of their rods(tuna sniper and ocean extreme popper), was just looking at a custom build.
As it stands, I'll be having the new rod built with one of their fathom blade jigging blanks, 5'4", 80-120lbs.

The captain on our most recent Venice trip was highly impressed with their ocean extreme popping rod that I let him test drive. He used it multiple time during the trip, for the heck of it.

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.

llengerbank731Hbigeye2_zps9ojxgdow.jpg[/IMG][/URL]Our Black Hole rods are same. We test our rods intensively and extensively for years.
Here is a pictures.

350 lb giant with BH Cape Cod Special 450g spinning


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.
