Outrigger Recommendations

Well after tuna fishing out east for 4 years I'm looking to purchase some outriggers for this season. Can anyone recommend a reputable manufacturer? I run a 22 ft edgewater center console and already have the mounting plates on the t-top. thanks

HAMMER TIME!

Taco 1.5 " HD 15 or 18 foot telescopic poles. Those are the one I use. They work well. Plus you trailer so you need fold up ones unless you want to take them off every trip. 1.125" poles will break under load and pulling bars you really need the 1.5 HD by Taco or other reputable brands. Rupp and Lee make outriggers also although not sure if they have retractable ones.

Whatever you do don't buy Schaeffer, they are pure garbage. Rupp and Lee make good riggers, but I don't know if they make them small enough for your boat.

I use the 1.5" taco's. I know I'm in the minority but I like them on the gunnels.

I have the Rupp Z30's and fixed Top Guns poles. They work great on mt 23 Parker. Recently Rupp came out with the telescopic versions but they are pricey.
