Entry level jigging rod and reel (spinning)

StevoStevo Posts: 25 Greenhorn
After reading and thinking about the idea jigging I'd like to buy my first jigging rig. I only recently got into saltwater fishing after buying my first center console. I think I prefer trying out a spinning combo and was wondering if something like a Penn Battle 5 or 6000 combo rod and reel would be good for starting out jigging.

My home inlet is Port Everglades so I'd be targeting snapper on the reefs and maybe some wahoo and tuna in the deeper waters a few miles off Port Everglades. Also, I know I can buy rod and reels that are specifically designed for jigging, but it seems those all cost $500+ and I'm not ready for that kind of investment yet and the main reason I'm thinking about trying the Battle route.

Please advise, and thanks in advance!
