Great all around dipsey rod for walleye and salmon. I use the 8 footer for inside dipsey and 8 1/2 foot for the outside. I like the medium heavy rods.
Pros: great price, just the right back bone, good tip action.
Cons: no hook holder, I did have snap in half on me one, may have been a fluke though been using them for awhile now.
Best Uses: dipsey rods

I have 2 9ft rods with okuma line counters. These are great for trolling with walker deeper divers. They are limber but still have plenty of backbone to handle big fish. I will be buying more of these in the near future.

If you want to get a bunch of trolling rods, that are cost effective, will work for any type of trolling, are light, and built well. Get some of these. I am using the Med Heavy with Walker Tripz Jets for Walleye as well as for Salmon and Brown trout. These would work well for all species including musky.
Pros: Flexible, Durable, Easy To Transport
Cons: none
Best Uses: Large Fish, Ocean Fishing, River Fishing

I have fished with this rod for several years, primarily used for ocean salmon fishing. It has proven itself on many occasions, sensitive enough to provide excellent hookups yet tough enough to battle a 40# head shaker. I liked the rod so much that I purchased one for my fishing buddy.
Pros: Durable, Good Tip Action
Cons: none

My husband wasn't sure when I bought these rods,mainly because of the price, very reasonable, but when we used them and when he saw the bend he could put on them, he cranks them down quite a bit when they are on the downriggers, he was very impressed. We have 4 of these rods and use them every year Salmon fishing Lake Superior.
