Brand is your choice.. I throw it on a 7'2" Heavy action rod, a use Daiwa reels but that's just me. I use a 6.3 reel spooled with 50 lb Daiwa J/8 braid. I was using 65lb line and really didn't see any difference when I made the change. It was just time for new line and I had the 50 lb stuff. I'm sure some will say certain brands or models are what to need, But just keep in mind your will be throwing a very heavy rig that will wear you out using. lol well I'm getting older so. It does catch them when the conditions are right! Good luck!

I have trolled u-rigs in the past for stripers. I use a Cabelas 9' inner flow planer board rod, daiwa sealine line counter reel with 40# test braid. I have used some heavy u-rigs too. I used the Offshore planer board, I upgrade the line release. I have used this in Elephant Butte lake quite some time ago, worked great using a Co-Pilot Minnkota bow mount trolling motor to keep me on track. They don't make the inner flow any more so now a Cabela's DepthMaster III Trolling Rod 9' planer board rod is what is up. I guess the inner flow was too hard for people to figure out how to thread the line. Using it for contour trolling with live bait is very effective.

I like the Yumbrella Jr set up, comes with flashers hooks and white grub with a curly tail. I use a 7 Ft MH Temple Fork Outfitter TFO Rod, with a Plugger president reel with 30 lb braid. Or a TFO rod with a Mettle Reel and 50 lb braid for trolling
