Best $20.00 I ever spent
by Greg Bozick
Great rods! I have been using the 8 ft. medium rod for Dispys rods the last two seasons with great results. NO rods failed. I run six Dipsy rods on any trip. I Run # 0 and #1 divers off the rods in waves up to 5 ft with complete confidence. These rods preformed way better than expected. At $20.00 They are a steal.
Great Value and quality
I have been using these rods on Lake Erie for three years now. I have them matched up with Okuma Magda reels for planer boards and Daiwa Great Lakes Series reels for dipsey diver fishing. These rods have performed very well. They have withstood some rough handling and rough seas. I have broken two rod tips but both were from our own fault. I steeped on one in heavy seas and the other was pinched in a door onboard. I would highly recommend these quality rods for trolling hands down. I have 10 planer board rods and six dipsey diver rods. Yes 16 total and they have performed better than ever expected. Things I like about them is the ability to handle big fish , nice line guides and having all the same rods for your lines when fishing allows you to see the tension on all the same rods allowing the slightest difference in pull.
Bought two of them for Raystown striper trolling, used them for river catfish. Been having them for 3 years and no complaints. Great rods for the buck
Rod Tip Broke 1 Month
by Adam G
Rod looks nice. After a month of trolling, maybe 5 or 6 uses, ceramic insert popped out of the last rod guide eye. $5 fix, but you get what you pay for.

I use these rods on my boat and often fish 10-12 rods at once. Use them for dispy rods and planer board lines. I have had a few rid tips break because I have caught them in the tip- my fault...they are 8 feet long! How can you beat $20 per rod. I have several as spares but have not had to open them. I think they are a great value.
