 Great downrigger and dipsy rods
Pros: Light weight, Plenty of backbone
Best Uses: Downrigger and dipsy
Comments: I have four that I use for downriggers and two two for dipsy rods. The soft gimbal butt is a nice feature. The rods have the correct parabolic bend for Great Lakes fishing, and they are also light weight. They have a fast recovery which helps you beat those big fish fast.

 Okuma Blue Diamond trolling rods 8' M
Pros: Outstanding action
Comments: I bought the 8' medium to use as my downrigger rods on Lake Ontario. One of the ceramic guides was cracked when I opened the box but as per usual FishUSA sent me a new one and a return label quickly. Completely satisfied with FishUSA's response and making it right. The rods are perfect as I didn't want a rod that was like using a 2x4 but still had enough backbone to handle a king on Lake O. These fit the bill perfectly and can be doubled right over when loading them on the downriggers. Only caught a couple of coho's and one small king (13 lb) but they worked great and I'm confident these will be my go to rigger rods from now on. I'm already planning to purchase a couple more. Thanks FishUSA for the great customer service!

 I own a couple of these rods and they are outstanding. I use them as standard trolling rods or with a downrigger. Outstanding action and durability.
Pros: Outstanding action, durability and hookset.., excellent rod for the money, Dave
Best Uses: Flatline and downrigger trolling
Comments: I fish for salmon, Brook trout and lake trout more than any other species even in the warmest of summer months and consistently produce nice fish. I have never had one of these rods fail.

 Okuma BD Trolling Rod (from prior model)
Pros: Strong, limber
Comments: I love this light medium weight rod in the 8'6" configuration. With the 12, yes 12 guides, the line has a super positive flow off and onto the reel even under the stress of larger fish. The ergonomic handle is ultra comfortable and keeps the rod from turning unwantedly in grip. The rod is two piece but ultimately makes a fine one piece with a good stron glue at the ferrule.

 Sweet! (from prior model)
Pros: Not wimpy, Durable, Darn good looking, Good Tip Action
Best Uses: Dragging dipsies, Muskie trolling
Comments: I hate wimpy rods that bend back so far they have no angle left for tip action when trooling big muskie lures at 5mph. Also.... wimpy rods make my spread narrower instead of keeping the lures away from the boat. Same thing goes for trolling Dipsies for walleyes... the rod needs to have somethong left after loading it up with such resistence. I don't need to spend [$] or more for that kind of rod anymore.

 Great Product A+++ on quality and price (from prior model)
Pros: Good Tip Action, Easy To Transport, Sensitive, Accurate Casting, Durable, Flexible
Best Uses: Ocean Fishing
Comments: Be sure to measure twice as these bad boys are pretty long, but are well built and perfect for trolling. I used them on my Okuma 15's trolling in the Keys for Mahi and Wahoo. Caught plenty of both, plus hooked a little Tuna. Great Action and control. We even had some fun with some 4-5 foot Cuda's in shallow water just to see how the rods and reels would do....Both Amazing. I asked my buddy how his Peen 30's were treating him and his wallet :-)

Pros: Flexible, Durable, Easy To Transport, Sensitive, Good Tip Action
Best Uses: Trolling-Atlantic Salmon, Trolling-Rainbow Trout
Comments: Trolling for Salmon,Rainbow Trout either using Boards or Down Riggers. Only rods being used on my boat. Can not beat the performance using light line and small reel (Okuma 20's LC)

 Okuma Blue Diamond ML 8'6" (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Flexible, Good Tip Action
Comments: I bought this rod to fish for salmon on Lake Ontario, mainly in the spring. This is a nice quality rod but the medium light version is somewhat to light /flexible. I caught a nice 20 lb salmon on this rod, but it does not have enough stiffness to guide this fish to the net at the end of the fight. Also with such a light rod I feel that the hook set might be compromised. I would recommend the medium version 8'6" rod, as it should provide more qualities for trolling for larger salmon. Overall it's a nice rod and I will keep using it.

 Lightweight rods (from prior model)
Comments: I have the 7,5' ML & 8,5' M downrigger versions. Both are very lightwight (so I doubt the durability in extended use). The action is on the soft side compared to other rods i'm using for trolling & downriggers(Ugly Stick Tigers). Good quality finnish overall.

 Great Downrigger Rod (from prior model)
Pros: Durable, Flexible, Good Tip Action, Sensitive
Best Uses: Large Fish, Ocean Fishing
Comments: Just returned from fishing the west side of Vancouver Island at Nootka Sound. Biggest fish was 36 pound Chinook. The Okuma Blue Diamond performed flawlessly. I purchased because a good friend has fished them for years and I saw how good the rods are. He catches lots of big salmon. Well worth the money, I purchased another, too.

 strong functional rod (from prior model)
Pros: Flexible, Durable guides, Durable, Rod holder butt
Best Uses: Diver trolling, Copperline trolling, Large Fish
Comments: For trolling on the great lakes this rod is a great choice for the price. It adapts well to heavy wire trolling. The butt end with crosslock seating for rodholders keeps the guides in line with the trolling resistence. The guides are durable enough for several seasons of wire trolling.
