Anybody have any info on these rods? I'm 99% a jig man, but I'm interested in getting a set of cheaper rods for trolling and these seem to be in my budget. Any of y'all had any luck trolling with these rods?

THEY WILL WORK FINE BUT THE 4 FOR 60.00 AT GRIZZLY JIGS WOULD BE A GOOD DEAL . PM REES GUIDE ABOUT THEM . HE HAS USED THEM SEVERAL YRS .:twocents

I had one Westpoint that I ran with PST's while cranking. My wife said to get rid of it cause it acted funny so I did.:biggrin It was an ok rod, but didn't match the action of the PST.

Like Eagle1 said go to Grizzly jig and get a set of Pinnacal Limit rods. 4 for 60.00 dollars.Tess Guide and I have been using them for a couple of years and we are both happy with them. Very good budget rods to start with and they catch fish just as good as my high dollar poles.

Pinnacles are way more flimsy than the west points. I ordered pinnacles an sent them straight back.

Thanks for yalls input. I love hearing mixed reviews and suggestions. I've never held the pinnacle before but I'll be sure to take a look at them as well. Just looking for some cheap, decent trolling rods for them days the jigging ain't so good.

the only ones that I have personally have used and thought were totally a bad purchase were slab seekers .zebco product .those WestPoint rods used to sell here for 25.00 but quickly went up to 45 .00 . At that price their are several better options . jmo

Check Grizzly They will have something you like in your price range. I have got a few different rods from them. Don`t use any high end stuff, I believe it`s all in the one holding the rod and rigging the bait. I have seen a guy with line on a beer can out fish a fellow with a 200$ rod. Just my 2 cents.
