do jigging rods generally cast very well? i have two shimano thunnus 120000s and i was wanting one of them set up with a good jigging rod and one of them set up to cast jigs and similar lures with as as much distance as i can. my question is do jigging rods cast very well so i could get two jigging rods and use them for casting too or do i need to get one set up esp for casting?
Are they "ideal" for casting, no. Will they work, and people use them to cast baits, myself included? Yes. If budget/space isn't an issue I'd get another rod for casting, if not then your jigging rod can serve a dual purpose.
