Thoughts on Dipsy Rods

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at replacing two mismatched dipsy rods. Right now I have one 10' and one 8' Browning probably 20 years old. Is the rule of thumb for dipsys the same as downrigger rods -  you can go cheap on rods and spend more on reels? Or is there merit to spending more on a dipsy rod? I've been out of this type of fishing for a bit. Got back into it last year. This year I went to braid, not sure the Browning Silflax even has the proper guides. Was looking at Okuma classic glt dipsy rods in either 10' or 10-1/2' because of price ($38). Not sure if Ugly Stik makes one or how their action is for this application.
