Dipsey rods

Recommended Posts

We've been running the Daiwa Great Lakes diver rods for a few years now. No complaints here. We've run their wire rods with rollers and they are a bit beefier and much heavier in the hand, so we sidelined those. The models we're currently running are GL902MHR and GL962MHR


You can buy them at FishUSA - fishusa.rv5k.net/knnaL

Yankee I actually looked at them last night in our local store . They feel like a real decent rod. 

I had the same question Ryan. Rick sent me the link from fish USA  for the diawa diver rods and they were out of stock a few weeks and came back in a week ago. Just got them in and paired them up with Diawa sealine 47sg reels. Definitely a solid setup for under $200

I ended up going with the Great Lakes 902 rod. Feels like a nice setup. Should definitely be better than the ugly stick med light that I am running currently. Definitely not enough rod for wire dipseys. 


Nice choice. I run that one too. ,

I run 10' Eagle Claws. For the money I don't think you can beat them.


Wooden poles? Or have they changed that?

I snapped 2 Eagle Claws after 1 year of use, one on a laker, another on a big king. Snapped right above

the first eyelet. I swore I'd never buy Eagle Claws again after that.
