I am looking into buying a new football jig rod and was wondering what other people use.

Dobyns Xtasy 755 is what I use. It works well.

This is a good one. I'll also throw the Falcon Amistad in there also.

Not enough info.

What type of water?
What weight jigs?
What weight line?

I pick a suitable rod based upon the type of bait and the weight of the bait / line to be used.

AAE ..... I fish football head jigs at times that weigh 1/8 ounce on a M rated spinning rod. Far cry from the rod I use with 3/8 ounce baits. wink

Most sensitive would be a NRX followed by a Shimano Adreana.
I use a Power tackle football head jig rod because I have had it for a long time.
Dobyns Champion Extreme or Xtasy are good choices also.
Kistler Z bone is another one that would work well.
