Default okuma cedros combo

searching for a good beginners setup for jigging.

reading good things about the okuma cedros spinning reels (specifically the cj-65s)

wondering if their rod (cj-s-601m / 6ft medium) is the way to go or if theres a better match.

thanks

I use nothing but Okuma and they have never failed me yet. I have a cedros 80 and love it. Just bought a raw to try out b/c it has 50lbs of drag. Have only caught a few 30 lbs AJ's so far but love it!

I have a Cedros 65- great reel- strong drag- smooth- light, used mine 75+ days, great retrieve ratio if you bottom fish- mine has caught many grouper, hope it lasts. Have other orkuma's I don't care for- but the Cedros- definitely

the rod's are good- durable- tip a bit soft for me, but my friends use often/hard and like them.

I hated my Cedros 65, handle broke 3 times each time replaced under warranty. All 3 were on 8-10 lb aj's.

80 series reel, 80lb test, 6'6" mh or H rod. Its a great starter rod for jigging. Mines still producing after 4-5 years. High drag strength on them for a $1-- reel.
