Post office (the cheapest method) allows a package less than 150cm long. SPJ rods are usually about 2-meter long 1-piece, and I will have to ship by FedEx, which can be expensive as USD200+. One package can contain 3 rods without changing the shipping fee. You may want to get your friends involved to share the shipping to reduce the cost.
Please be generous with jig colors. SPJ jig comes in many kinds, weights, and colors. Shops do not have such a big inventory. Keep in mind that the color choice is very limited. You can tell me your preferences such as “silvery”, “blueish” or “pinkish”, or you can say “I don’t like orangish colors.” And I will try to follow your preferences as much as I can with whatever is available in the market. Please do not expect me to send you the pictures of available colors and back and forth. This will take too much time and the stock can be gone by the time we decide. If you don’t say any color preferences, I will always try to get as much variety as possible with glow colors, which I always do with mine.
When you are just learning SPJ, I always recommend using only 2 or 3 kinds of suitable jigs for your fishing conditions. Many people want to have many kinds of jigs, but instead, I recommend having many jig weights of a few kinds. Different jig weights offer you different actions, tactics, and adoptabilities to the ever-changing ocean conditions. If you use only a few kinds, you will get familiar with them and know what they feel like in action. With that consistency, you will feel it when the ocean is different. This sensitivity is the heart of SPJ. Don’t think jigs will bring you fish. Your goal is to use them purposefully in any given condition.
