On a recent outing with David Harrison, I was introduced to the ice reels from Clam. I have to admit, I doubt they were ever intended to be on a 10ft jig pole but that is where this particular one found itself and they sure are a perfect reel for it. With the trigger, dropping a jig down to a brush pile in twenty foot of water a one handed breeze. Easy to operate, smooth drag system, and very durable. I really like mine after fishing with for a few weeks and plan on owning several more in the very near future. They have several versions to choose from in varying price ranges but the gravity elite has my vote.
