    just wanted something a little more "stiff", do most run the mediums?

    I'm no rigger expert, by a longshot. But.......most downrigger rods have a relatively light action, mainly (I think) so you can 'load' the rod up nicely without tripping the release.

    I like the Ugly Stik BWD-110183

    The 'BWD' stands for Big Water Downrigger

    i have 2 diawa heartland heavy downrigger rods. they are 9'6" and are rated for 12-30# line. you can try them out and if you like them, we'll talk. not too sure i even want anything else for them but maybe few "playin hookys" or something:p :p :p
