      I would have to look - I think one was shimano, not sure of the other. I remember they were both name brand.

                I don't really like them - they are medium action and I like heavy. My go to is still my 40yo UglyStick Alpha Boron. Bought two and they are the best I have ever had for Lake Walleye.

                  I'm guessing your trolling with the heavy rod. Medium should work. I got a 9ft medium ugly stik and had no problems with it. Caught some nice big ones on it.

                    I don't do much trolling - have 1 downrigger and hardly use it. I have a large reel with wire line and use it very little. Just my preference is for a 'heavy' rod.

                      Just have two heavy rods mostly for musky fishing. Other than that all my rods are light action.

                        These are my two Boron rods, heavy action. Each has caught thousands of walleye, including hundreds of Fish Ohio walleye - over 10lbs. (I put them back). - I bought them both in 1980. If you ever see one in a garage sale - buy it. You will not be disappointed.
                        On a tile floor with 12" squares, where there are real tight seams, hold a pole lightly and slide the tip back and forth over the seam. You should feel the seam in the handle on a good rod.

                          Saw a guy and his boy out fishing the other day. The guy was making superb casts with a rod that was obviously new. I asked him, "Is that a boron you've got there?"

                          The guy looked at me, then looked at his son. Then he looked back at me and said, "Well, he ain't too bright, that's for sure."

                            How old are those surprised the gas is still in them. How’s the flex on those.
