Why do you say 28g? All the micro jigs are pretty much above 28g

micro means small so true micro jigs normally from 10-30g max, i do know some fisherman call jigs up to 60g micro.

Holy crap.....that's one helluva long rod for micro jigging.

You could try Tenkara jigging ..... might start a new trend!Clown


Hi Kev. My got to micro rod when i first started was a Synit 8'6", absolute beauty of a rod, rated around 3-5kg, caught snapper to 9kg with it and heaps of kingies to 1m without feeling under gunned
Since sold that rod as i bought out my own range of rods so thought it only right that i use my own design. Best kingy was 20kg caught on a 30g Hornet jig in 50m( it did take 45min)
Anyways, a hell of a lot of fun. Longer rods are normally used overseas because micro jigs were invented for shore casting and most jig have lots of action and weighted to flutter so to not get snagged on the bottom.
My rods are 8' 2".btw and you can also use these rods for softbaiting
