hey mate, any rod suited to 1-3kg , 2-4kg .

Reel anything around the 2000 / 2500 size

8lb flurocarbon line... some people use up to 20lb to avoid snags...

My favourite squid jigs are yamashita egisuittes in 1.8 PINK / GREEN
Daiwa MDs 3.5 in fire red and the gold colour....

Hope that helps, Brad
