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.

The ugly stik diver rods are absolute pool sticks.  Not much action at all.

Daiwa wilderness they were the cheapest but I gave them a try this year and they work awesome for the price

This. FishUSA had a sale last year-buy 2 at 20$ each, get one more free. Great deal. They have been great rods for cheap.
