Thanks. I never thought about the regulator issue - a wise investment I guess.

@ if the reason for the electric reel is the back ache you should by a good reel and a good rod and you'll see the difference.

Maybe a stella 8000/5000 and a good light rod like xzoga/tenryu/.....

with a max 200g rod and a stella 5000 you wont feel an itch after a full day jigging and you could still pull up big fish (over 20kg) and the fun would be increased by 10 times Smiley

you could also go for even lighther jigging.... but dont think that you'll enjoy jigging with an electric reel, it would be the most boaring fishing ever.

yes we did but not in the tank. Tony tied one end of the line to the trolley of the tank and then started reeling in until the line broke Smiley

Amen!!

Guys jigging is a very dynamic technique, it is always evolving.  The trend in the Med at the moment is Light/Medium Jigging.  There is no need to have Rods that work lures of 300g and a Reel that can pull out a tuna!  If you do not want to break your back go for light Jigging.  Get a rod with a lure weight of 150g, Line weight of 2-3PE and a invest in a good 8000(S)/4500(D) reel.

Keep the line as thin as possible, it is common to use 30lb these days.  It makes the fight a hell of a lot more fun.  Thinner line means less friction in the water, so you will get tired less and the current will not hamper your jigging technique.

Then there is Inchiku, the equipment differs a little.  You need a very sensitive rod, that still has plenty of backbone to fight the mediterranean fish.  A multiplier reel is usually used, capable of holing about 250m of 25-30lb braid.  A reel that can keep 5kg of drag smoothly is MORE than enough.  Inchiku is a LOT more relaxed than Jigging, and target fish like Pagri, Tanut, Pagell and Cipullaz, aprt from the usual dentex and amberjacks. They way the lures are worked is also different.

im no inchiku expert benri, however buy a good rod from the start as youll end up having to buy another one.  clutch_kick can guide you well about the major craft rods which are good rods Smiley

i would go for a baitcasting reel (obviosly the rod must be the baitcaster type of rod).  a medium priced shimano 300 size reel should do the job Wink

Guys I am no expert at all but due to my probs I was lately going to buy some jigging equipment to spend some time at sea.

I gave up on my first attempt to buy since that after going to angler and mr fish I was shown 1000 rods and 500 reels and did not have a bloody idea what to do. Some said do not care about the rod, the most imp. is the reel some said otherwise... Then I was going to see some okuma due to your good words about norbert, but here you are saying that they aren't good for jigging?Huh Clutch kick also wanted to sell me his equip. but I gave up since that as an interested beginner, I have no clue what to do.... Obvously I as still thinking about this possibility...

Price is also imp. I do not want to spend 500 euro to go once and give up....
So any comments??

I am no expert Baghira but I'll try to help the best I can and hopefully you will also get some input from the experts. Basically first you have to decide what type of jigging you are interested in as there are different types. The ones I know of are the "normal" vertical jigging (with which I caught nices aj's), then there is Inchiku and then there is Kabura.
The most popular is the vertical jigging as I think it produces most results, but the drawback is when like me, people suffer from back pain! After a days jigging I couldn't stand my back for 2 weeks! I am also not the fittest type of guy in the forum and that doesn't help my back either Smiley For this type of Jigging I use the Okuma Cedros which in my opinion is one of the best set-ups.
Following my back pains however, I was going to try and switch to an electric reel, but then started considering lighter jigging following the advice of a couple of forum experts who told me that it would no longer be fun with an electric reel! This is when I started looking into the other types of jigging.
Inchiku is a lighter form of jigging where you have less jerks and slower but constant reel ins. Different type of jigs are used which are sort of split into 2 parts, the weight and the lure. The idea is to sort of "dance" the lure about. For the Inchiku you also need a differerent rod and reel set-up which hoever is very similar os the same as those used for Kabura.
With Kabura you are using different lures which are kept to the bottom.
I invite other members to please correct me where I went wrong and to continue adding on!

ONE second, how come if u use an delectric reel itsd not fun?!?!?!?!?!
when using an electric reel all u are taking off from vertical jigging is the turning of the reel handle to recuperate the line.
if you use an electric reel all u have to do is put it on slow retrieve and u still have to jerk the lure. this makes it esier for those with back ache. if you are very sensitive to back ache then the full jigging reel is the only option. The part of jigging is the physical stuff is out BUT u still have to fight the fish and this can be done like a normal reel that is reeling it in by hand.....so how come this is not fun.
If one is young and strong and can keep up with the jigging action, then fair enough do it, but for those who cannot keep up the stress of jigging (no matter how balanced the rod and reel are), then dont shy away from an electric reel.
Initially when we started using the rod and reel for fishing in Malta and we imported the large lures for Alungi (150mm) I was branded. I was told that I was going fishing for sharks and that its not fun with the rod and reel. I was also critisised that the liner is toooooo thin and would break with the first fish caught. check with the ones who started fishing for alungi they used lines of 100.
Now everyoneis going down down down......even certain reels are considered as overkill.....
