Everything about Fishing Rods

How To Choose Best fishing Rod?

Basically, fishing rods are made of carbon material. Manufacturers combine the three different material together to make a strong fishing rod. In order to make the perfect rod for fishing Plastic, Composite carbon and Kevlar are used together. Mass of carbon is light as compared to its strength which allows some thinner fabrication while keeping the length and span. Lighter rods are easy to use and you fell low pressure on your shoulders while handling them in windy conditions.

Silicon carbide, chrome (hard) and ceramic rings are most commonly used in quality rods to letting the line pass through without much resistance. Next time when you go for buying a fishing rod choose one with these rings for an excellent fishing experience. We all know silicon material is bit costly but if you want can choose ceramic rings like Zircon. These are cost-effective but not strong as silicon ones. If you want stylish, shining rings chrome ring are good option to choose. The downside of chrome ring is they need to be replaced every year. Approximately 13 rings are must in a rod from handle to tip for a better experience.

Length of the rod:

You have to choose length according to your plan of fishing. This means if you have a plan of far out fishing you need the larger rod, this will give you the more control over in every situation. On the other hand, if your plan is to fishing in an enclosed area you need a shorter rod for great fishing. To know more about fishing rods we spoke to the guides of SARASOTA FISHING CHARTERS. They said for fishing in Florida people use 13ft (3.9m) long rods.


Cork or Foam are used to make handles. This is the matter of personal choice. Got to the seller, ask to show you the rods with cork and foam. Check the handling, see which has more comfortable grip and go for that. There is nothing complicated in the handles almost all are same.
