    I am between these 2 rods for my next purchase. Was hoping to get some insight from those who have/used either of these rods and the pros and cons of both. Looking for a rod that will handle up to 3/4 oz jigs on the DR. Any info is appreciated

    Notice that the eyecons are only rated for a 5/8 oz lure weight. Any issues surrounding this? Seems like they should be rated for a heavier lure

    I have the eyecon but would rather have the elite tech 7'2 M riging you can jig and rig with that rod and it can handle 3/4 ounce jigs or sinkers.

    Has anyone tried the 8' ML Eyecon?

    ECS80MLF2

    I was thinking of picking it for casting lures for walleye, bass, etc.

    I love my 6'3" Elite Tech. Best Bang for the buck so far. It is by far the best jigging rod for the buck so far. Just picked up a second one yesterday.

    Just tried my new elite tech 6' 3" the other day and i have to say its sweet rod.

    As far as getting them for $90 bucks. Guys get them at a direct price and resell them on the web. I hope they dont ruin it for everyone! I'm sure Fenwick wouldnt be to pleased to see there premium rods getting sold for cheap on ebay.
