Ripplefisher’s jigging rod series, the “Selfish” will be renewed as of 2020.
There will be 3 spinning models and 2 bait-casting models, each developed with their own new concepts.
The already existing 613S, 614S and 597S models are for the vertical jigging game and the 3 new models will specialize in a natural swimming (NS) diagonal jigging.
The 2 new bait models are categorized as sensitive bait (SEB) models.
These added models are developed to keep up with the demands from the ever changing jigging scene.
To slide the jig, swim the jig, naturally maneuver the jig to induce that “bite”.
All models have the inherited the characteristics of the Selfish series with the slim, light and sharp feeling able to cut through the current, yet possessing a contradicting powerful butt section.
The SEB (natural swim) type
- SEB633, SEB624
These are highly responsive bait models able to easily maneuver jigs simply or technically with various jerking methods. Anglers will be able to easily vary the tempo and speed of jerks capitalizing on the advantages of the bait tackle set up.
Jigging Rod Bending Curve
Static load comparison of Selfish,Ocean Arrow series (1kg,3kg load)
Here is an illustration of the bending curves of the rods ranging from PE2 class to PE4 class of the Selfish series with a static load of 1kg. The illustration below displays the bending curve of rods above PE4 specifications with a static load of 3kg. The Selfish NS are flexible rods designed to naturally swim the jig with the belly section instead of flicking the jig with the tip section done with other types of jigging rods. The Selfish SEB are bait-casting models with stiffer tips that are not only able to rhythmically flick jigs with the tip but also able to naturally swim the jig with the belly section of the blank depending on the angle of your line. The ordinary models are equipped with the ability to conduct one pitch jerking to high pitch short jerking depending on your preference. It is designed for vertically jigging so once the angle of the line is too acute, it may cause the jig to lose the tension.
Selfish SEB 633
The standard model of the Selfish Bait series - built up with controllability and sensitivity as the foundation - is equipped with the ability to handle various jerking patterns vital for bait reel setups and blank settings which support the angler when reeling up a heavy load.
By eliminating the wobbling of the blank after the jerk and giving it moderate stiffness, the rod responds well in high-pitch or combination jerks. In addition, anglers are also able to utilize slow tempo jerks which focus on the falling of the jig to induce the bite.
Once the blank is loaded, the rods bends over nicely and the resilience will allow the angler to take initiative.
This versatile rod is the standard model of the series ideal for vertical or diagonal jigging in your local waters or exotic fishing trips.
