I am moving to Hawaii in about two months and trying to finish up getting some gear before I head over. I will be doing most of my fishing from kayak when I am not fishing from shore so I am in need of some rods.  They will be used for trolling small live bait or smaller x raps. I would like something moderate and probably around the 20-40lb class. Any honest input or especially from real life experience would be great. Thanks

I recommend 6'8" Charter Special Slow Pitch rod. We sold many to Kayak fishermen at the shows. The price is about $200.

I am not looking for a jigging rod. I am looking for a trolling/livebait rod that is parabolic

You don't have to use them for jigging. The rods are excellent for bait rods as tip is delicate and soft and it has backbone.  You need light, but strong rod as you don't have much mobility on a kayak.
