Shimano TLA-80MRG-2

Recommended Posts

just picked this rod up for wire dipsy fishing. 8ft med-med/fast action just wondering its too light for 30lbs steel wire the rating is only 10-20lbs.

do i need a heavier rod?

I'd use that rod on the downriggers. Excellent rod for that.

For the dipsy, I'd go with the MH (medium heavy).

If it is the one with the fuji roller guides then DO NOT USE IT FOR DIPSYS, contact me and I will take it off of your hands and give you a Heavy Shimano TDR rod in return!!

No really dude it is a very good rod for wire dipsys, just bought another myself last week!!

Hey Angelo,

In my first response, I didn't realize the 80-MRG was the Roller Guide version. Obviously that is not a good downrigger choice.

The 80-M or 86-M are great downrigger choices for Salmon. The 80-ML is a good choice for Spring trolling for brownies and cohos off the riggers.

Of course the roller guides are great for wire, but I still like something beefier for pulling the dipsies deep. All my wire dipsies are MH action, both in 8' and 9'6" lengths.

Sorry for the earlier confusion. :$
