7’6” or 7’ rod for wire? Not roller.

Recommended Posts

I have some twili tips, looking for 7-7’6” foot rods for wire diver. Will the aluminum oxide rings on standard talora rods work? Or TDR with same guides? If not any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Standard rings with a twilly tip will work fine.  I would be concerned that a shorter rod doesnt have enough forgiveness for a diver especially a large one.  Big advantage in running a longer leader with a longer rod as well as working fish around riggers, outboards etc.  A short one will work fine I'm sure but most of the rods specifically designed for wire divers are  9 or better.  I think all of mine are 10 footers.


Most of my shorter freshwater rods designed for trolling dont have near enough backbone for a diver. If you have some heavier ones they should work fine.  If you arent sure, run your TDR.  At least if something goes wrong you arent out an expensive rod.
