Great Fishing Rods
by AK Fisherman -
I use rods on Cannon Down Riggers and they work great for salmon.
Works surprisingly well

I purchased this rod for a 400 foot copper setup. It pulls this well off the stern or off a planer board. It really transmits the action so it is easy to see what's happening.
best all around, walleye to king salmon
by nothing but luck -
I think shakespeare rods are the best for all around fishing.Trolling mi rivers & downrigging the great lakes you can use the same rod.
Won't buy another this size

This is an 8'3" downrigger rod. While I like the action, it has several problems: first, the halves are unequal lenght with the tip half being about 10" longer than the butt half. This makes breakdown, storage and transport more difficult and exposes the thin parts to breakage. Second, the rod started to delaminate at the female joint on the first day of use. I like the action and it does work great as a downrigger rod. I also enjoy fighting fish with this rod.
