Falcon Bucoo

For the rod, A Bucoo will fit you nicely. They're only $99 but they fish like a $150+ rod. They're incredibly light and balanced. And you need that when fishing a jig all day. I have zero complaints about the Bucoo.

Lew's Speed Spool LFS

For the reel, I'd go with the Speed Spool LFS by Lew's. These reels are fantastic for their price! I have several and have put them through a lot of abuse. They've stood strong through lots of cover and big fish. Give 'em a shot.

Take a look at the Megabass Levante Perfect Pitch rod. Its a lot of rod for the money. Incredible jig rod and has a lot of other uses too. One of the most versatile in the lineup. You get the Megabass quality rolled into a lower price.

The MB Levante Perfect Pitch is 7' 2". The tip on the rod makes in an apt name. Pitching accuracy is amazing as is the backbone of this rod though its not a broomstick type feel either.

My pref. would be at least 7' broomstick with a 7.1 reel, so with that in mind and 200 budget, this is what I'd do Falcon BuCoo BRC-7-173, or a BRC-6-174, with a Orra SX 7.1.
You could use this also on frogs and spoons
Hope this helps

7.0H Daiwa Airx....Just to test it out I boat flipped a 5#er at Arlington. It performs flawlessly. Built like a mid level rod without the high price tag. Next would be the all new Daiwa Fuego 7.3H full cork grip...this rod was just released 2 weeks ago and has some pull to it. We will have one available to demo at fun n sun. At the end of the day get what you think will give you 100% confidence.

IMO the type of equipment you need depends on the type of jig fishing you are going to do. I have the Perfect Pitch Rod that Mark is referring to and it is a great rod, but its more of a flipping jig rod. I have a power tackle and Loomis NRX that I use mostly for deep water applications (Football Jig) and they perform better than the perfect pitch.
