    Having just got my first jig stick, I wondered about the lack of a reel seat. I'm going to have to get one.

    You can get them powder coated to closely match yor reels. They work well but as I hold my rod and reel to cast it does not feel correct in my reel hand. just may need to get used to it.

    I would like to see them with a trigger built into them. I have one on my jigstick, but I had to grind and work the washers so they wouldnt bite into my wrist while fishing with the rod in my armpit. Works great and its a solid mount. I mount my reel the night before the trip because I have a hard time mounting it on the waves.

    To each his own, Ghost. I would like to see a trigger model option along with the original line in all sizes.

    Jig Stop was working on modifying a Cork Puppy that would incorporate a rod trigger and a place for a safety line or hook hole. Yea I'm the guy that came up with the Rod Trigger. Just answering a question
