Based on the same design platform as the casting model (5+1-piece) but just 3” shorter, the spinning version of the Wanderlust is equally versatile and can handle a wide variety of lures. It is armed with a sensitive tip to feel the lure when bouncing off the bottom and can quickly detect any bites. This is especially important for slower presentation with soft lures.
Available with the same Jiggerlust extendable butt as the BC model, The Jabbers Wanderlust is designed to work light vertical jigs up to 100g and packs plenty of power to stop inshore pelagics. Achieves a perfect balance with spinning reels between 3000 (Daiwa) to 4000 (Shimano) sizes. Carefully constructed using Toray carbon cloth and featuring Fuji SiC K guides/reel seat, this travel stick closes down to a packed length of only 45cm and is definitely the one rod to pack in your suitcase no matter where you may be going.

All the joints on your Jabbers Wanderlust Spinning have been carefully constructed to provide a good fit. However, with continuous use, there is a chance that the joints may start to loosen due to wear and tear. The use of a thin layer of ferrule wax will eliminate this problem. Jabbers recommend the use of Loon Outdoors Graffitolin Ferrule Wax. For proper application of ferrule wax, please refer to instructions on Loon Outdoors website.
After exposure to salt water, high temperature and humidity, there is a chance that the joints become hard to dismantle. Do not try to twist the rod by holding onto the guides. This may damage the guides. Instead, wash the joints with fresh water, use a rod wrap and coil snugly around the blank. This provides an excellent grip on the blank and will help you dismantle your rod with ease. If this does not work, further cool down your rod with freshwater and try again.
All Jabbers rods like the Wanderlust are constructed using quality Fuji guides and do not require extra maintenance. It is however important to thoroughly flush down all the guides and the reel seat with fresh water after use to prevent corrosion.
The high-density neoprene rod bag that is provided will adequately shield your rod from scratches and harmful UV rays. Always keep your rod in the neoprene bag until you need it. If you plan to transport your rod in a checked-in luggage, the use of the Jabbers Expedition case is highly recommended to protect your rods from rough handling.
