I like the Diawa Wilderness rods 9 foot medium power. I use these for pulling dipseys and spoons on Erie

I just use cheap okumas for Dipsy salmon fishing. https://www.fishusa.com/Okuma-Classi...-Trolling-Rods
Eith 9 or 10 foot. For walleye fishing they do make a 10 foot white diamond dipsy rod. Unless you are running long boom downriggers. The 9 foot is as long as you should need. The okumas are really stiff in the lower half. So they do not bend all the way over with the pull of the dipsy. If you are walleye dipsy diving. Look into to slide diver lite bite dipsys instead of regular ones. You can set the slide diver lite bites to release really easily with small fish. https://www.fishusa.com/UCharters-Slide-Divers

Shimano TDR and Taloras have served me well over the years.

I use a 7' Shimano TDR. I like the 7' rod as it is easier to handle on my 18' boat. I tried a set of 9' rods but found it harder to land fish....would have to back up almost to the console all the time. That and I prefer one piece rods.

That being said lots of fish are caught on Erie every year with Shimano TDR, Daiwa Wilderness, and Ugly Stiks. Right now you might be limited to what you can find, not necessarily what you want.
