I would use the Pinnacle Marine STX 2050 with TLD 25s for flat lines. I have two of the Pinnacle Marine STX 3080 rods with TLD 25s for my outrigger lines and they work great. I like the stiffer action of the STX 3080 on the outriggers so the release clip trips cleanly. At ~$100 ea. delivered, these rods are hard to beat.

The Pinnacle STX2050 is a great rod for the money and I have 4 of them. Also the Star Aerial 30-80 RG rod is good for heavier trolling, but is more than you need with the TLD25's.

Crowder rods get my vote. Their e-series in the 30lb class are great stand up/trolling rods. I have quite a few. So do several of my fishing buddies. We all like them. They also stand behind their product.

I've been using Connley rods for the last couple of years and I'm suprised with quailty for the price.
You can call Bryan Direct at 561-685-3474 he is great to work with.

I have sets of Crowder and Tallus rods matched to TLD 20's and 25's, they are decent rods but my Connolly's have them beat in every facit. Quality, durability, and price. I am using the Connolly 6'6" Kingfish rods.

i vote for pinnacle as well, he is very willing to help you with the cost and is extremely nice to deal with.

The Shimano Talavera 63HRS is an excellent match for TLD 25s. They cost $139.99.

I have 2 pinnacle 30-80's with two speed Okumas on them. I gotta say, either the other guys are ripping us off or Pinnacle is selling for less than cost. They are fantastic and I would look no further.

Hey J,

I like the TLD 25s, but I was thinking about the Okuma Solterra 30II two speed on a Pinncale 3080 for the way way back line. Is that the two speed you have on them? How do you like the Okumas?

I have 30-50lbs Stalker bent butts, I've fished them with Shimano Tiagras and are perfectly balanced. Selling them for 150.00 each, firm. Thanks Capt. Chris

I agree with the recommendation for the Connley Rods. The 30/60's would be my choice. You can troll them or live bait um!
Harold or Brian are great to work with!
