Convector 30d and an okuma pro glt dipsy rod (whatever length you like) and then a twilli tip for the end.   Convector holds the whole 1000 feet of wire after putting on some 20lb backing on the spool.   best bang for the money.   Probably looking around 225-250 for everything at the end of the day - rod, reel, line and twilli

I agree, also when I started, I used Rapala RSC rods ... they were pretty good too.

Are you close to Port Credit in Mississauga.
You have Bronte Outdoor and Shortwave in close proximity.
Not sure you'll get the roller rods though.

Woodstock had a great fishing shop ... not sure with COVID who survived the storm though.

Try Grimsby Tackle...they are fully stocked for Lake O trolling. They may even have a spring special combo

Angling Outfitters will receive a big order of custom made roller rods sometimes May/June (need to call to confirm whether the date did not change). The blanks are as good as (if not better) than Talora and the guides are AFTCO. There will be 9.5 and 10.5 ft sticks. I am waiting... impatiently.

Bitcoin is up 10% today, so now it's only 910,000 bitcoin.
