Can't Go Wrong
Never fished saltwater...but what i CAN say and will is these are a very good choice for Large Cats "over 30 pounds and up" on the MIssissippi and Missouri Rivers. I landed a 65 lbs Blue several years ago with a garcia 6500c and 40 lbs Trilene Big Game line. From Shore at that on the MIssissippi in Jefferson County Mo....these rods hold their own for my use and the price can't be beat. I have 2 - 1041 and 2 - 1042 rods the 50 pound class i load with Garcia 6500c's and the 80 poud rods with Penn GT330 levelwind. the bigger poles are best suited for boat fishin the larger rivers since they are not going to cast well. That being said...load up a pair or 3-4 of these instead of buying one single rod for the same amount...throw them a smorsgaboard of live and cut bait...hold on for dear life. GOOD FISHIN

For the $$$,cannot be beat!!!
I have 4 of these rods (2 @ 30-50 & 2 @ 50-80). They are GREAT!!! Wear the guides & put on better ones. These rods are tough! They will handle anything you can hook. From 4lb triggerfish to 50lb amberjack, hook-em & hang on. These rods will not fail. For $25, nothing else even comes close. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

You Did'nt say which Model other than heavey and there are several...the 50 pound class work really well with Garcia 6500c the 80 pound versions i use Penn GT330..i am not familiar with that model Shimano...you can't go wrong with Garcia or Penn for reall crankin in biggins' but it is mostly matter of personal likes... best of luck
Other rods with a top line rating of 80lb (see Shakespeare Ugly Boat rods) are rated to handle up to 12oz weights. So - it appears that the these, rated for 50-80lb line could handle jigs up to 12oz also.
