I go back and forth between telescoping and two piece.

So of the rods listed what is the consensus interms of which is going to be the best bet for a reasonably priced solid rod? What about the action of the rod to use with cranks, harnesses and using them primarily with boards running mono or fireline.

Gander Mountain has a good line of trolling rods in 3 very economic price ranges. Many 2 piece long downrigger class rods, leadcore rods, and slip-stick rods.

They are made from IM8, IM7, IM6, and the Advantage economy line in composite class.

Range from $59 down to $29 or less. Some on clearance now so there are some deals to be had.
