    I'm looking to buy a new bottom bouncer rod and I plan on putting a level whine reel on it. Looking for suggestions.

    How much $ are you looking to spend? Any specific features you're looking for?

    Fiberglass ugly stick or the like for trolling, get one that's a bit heavy and you can run inline boards, bass pro has some for 30 bucks, ugly stick is 60, you don't need the sensitivity of graphite in a trolling rod, the main concern is power and it not breaking.
    if your not stuck on brand new facebook marketplace has some, you may want to take a look

    Cabela's Fish Eagle II rods may be worth a look too in that price range.

    Take a look at Northwoods, they have some nice combo’s and you can put together a nice rig for $100

    Are you going to be trolling with it rod in hand? If so, you do want a sensitive, fast action rod. If you are going to stick it in a rod holder and use planer boards, then a relatively cheap soft action rod will be much better.
