Choosing The Best Spinning Rods
Are you looking for the best spinning rod on the market? It may seem like there is a lot to consider when buying a spinning rod because of the varieties available. There are freshwater spinning rods, saltwater spinning rods, and even travel spinning rods. However, despite the ever-increasing options, there are only a few things that you need to check to ensure you pick the best spinning rod.
The rod’s power is the backbone of strength and fighting ability. It refers to the amount of weight the rod can pull and its extent of the bend. The heavier the rods, the more the weight they can pull with less curve. A lightweight rod will pull less weight and will also have a lot of flex. The rods come in a variety of weights ranging from heavy to medium to light to ultralight options. Other weight combinations also exist in-between. Why is this important? When it comes to rod weights, the bigger the fish, the bigger the rod you need. This is because a bigger fish will be heavier and will have more power to fight, hence the need for a secure and stiff rod.
Spinning rods come in lengths ranging from 2ft to 12ft. Your decision on length will depend on your fishing endeavors. Casting from a beach and casting from a boat requires different lengths. Other factors that determine the measure are the lures you want to use and the target fish species.
This refers to how the rod bends. They come in a range of three bending combinations. Either fast, moderate, or slow. While faster rods bend only near the tip, the slow action ones bend almost throughout the entire length of the rod. The action you choose will be determined by the fish you are targeting and lure sizes. For heavy lures, faster action is ideal, while the ultralight lures require a slow action. This is all you need when reviewing spinning rods for sale.
