Guys, don't try and do some of these things. 
Just went through a bunch of jig photos to find some shots of bent rods and some high sticks that make you cringe. Censored .  The action shots are enough to make the heart beat harder and the senses ready for that imminent explosion.  These are all experienced guys with some of the best rods money can buy so don't expect all rods to perform like this.

Sooshee bent over on a 110kg Bronzie (est) at White

Okada San at the 3 Kings
 
Jimi Jig bent at the Princes Group - 3 Kings
 
The following are photos from an International jigging group at the 3 Kings aboard Oracle. Jimi Jig & Chopsticks were also on this trip.
 
Ohhhh the PAIN!

Chris.  I liked your thread so much, that I started one on the US site.  Also, got the rod and will try it this weekend hopefully, after being off the water for 2 months with a broken foot.

Here is my contribution to your wonderful thread idea.

Heres a couple of Dobbo testing to the max, the prototype Jigstar spin series. Kojacks magic is clearly evident, The rod made short work of the resulting kingfish, untill it got sight of the boat and peeled off 30 odd meters again.

I have seen some goodies on this thread but this one appeared on 360Tuna today. We somethime never see the fish when rods get bent out of shape and high sticked. The cause of the bend in this Synit Venom V450FT is shown in the last pic's.
At these angle a rod has lost any lift it may have had and is heart stopping for blank and rod designers to see... but it's why we do those deadlift tests on the blanks before we go into the field.
 
The Stella 20000SW was nearly spooled even with the drag set at max and well over the rods maximum rating. Not recommended but makes for some wicked visuals.
 
For the full pic's and report visit 360Tuna forum thread " JPR and Hooked up II"
 
Warranty on the rod.....LOL

Not the biggest bendo pic, but one for the books... 55 Kilo Yellowfin Tuna on a JSR 450 Spin and Stella 20K... about 15 seconds later I got SLAMMED against the gunnel at 14 kilos of drag as the fish decided to put her after burners when she was 5 metres from the boat....
 
JSR 450 performed flawlessly...

Capt Aspara the fish was ok. It put up one mad fight for little old Kelly. It was 15 kilo and fought harder than any 20 kilo fish i have seen. We just went out for a quick evening Jig and she was onto this within the first drift.
