Ok so managed to loose my Trinidad 10 set up the other day thanks to the crew so looking at options.

One being the CATCH ACID WRAP ROD & JGX2000 REEL COMBO
Anyone using these reels, any comments/problems?

Used for metal lures/slow jigs

Cheers

The obvious option, although quite pricy, is an Ocea Jigger 1000 or 1500. Extremely similar to the Trinidad, only has the big handle and a spool lock, plus the buzz when line is taken. I've fished a 1500, really really nice reel for slow jigging.

Otherwise, if you're ok with lever drags, the next option is a Talica 8, or Okuma Andros 5N - ideally with the Andros you want the second generation silver ones.

Other interesting option would be a Poseidon (Kaveman may be able to help you out there), or maybe a Daiwa Saltiga 10H

Have you tried the latest JXG2000, a definite upgrade from the original jg2000 reel.
