Rod Types

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

Just looking to confirm the differences between rods which are labled "Spinning" and "Casting".

 

Rod's labled "Spinning" are rods which are disigned with use of spinning reel.?

 

Rod's labled "Casting" are rods which are designed to be used with conventional revolving spool reel.?

 

or, am I just way off base and need some help.

 

Thanks

You hit the nail right on the head. The rods are constructed differently with the guides either on or 180 deg. off the spine of the blank, thus letting the rod "load" properly when casting.

I believe your assumption is correct. Although I've seen people catch fish with a spinning rod/spinning reel turned upside down as if it were a "casting outfit"..hummmm. What kind of fishing do you want to do?
