Very few jigging reels better than an old Shimano Trinidad 40N (the old gold reel)... if you can still find one...
JX raptor's are tough reels but I don't like the lack of instant anti-reverse for high speed jigging. It throws my rhythm off. Accurates are good if you can afford them.

I've used my release SG for jigging and fishing from the kayak this past year and really like the little reel. Even landed a 60 lb yellowfin jigging with it last fall. Lightweight, good drag, lifetime warranty (warranty service usually back to you within a week if ever any problems), just not considered a narrow spool reel. It does have more of a mechanical feel to it (like Accurates do) as opposed to buttery smooth (like shimanos).

I just picked up the release real and used it on Sunday. So far so good. Super lightweight
