The Choice of Our Spinning Rod

The different modalities within the spinning rods require specific adapted to each. This fills the market with a brutal amount of models, and sometimes this confuses most novice fishermen. We will see how they are spinning rods and that will determine your choice.

According to, there are two types of canes well differentiated in the market of “casting” rods, spinning rods and the of ‘spinning’. The difference between these two types of cane is given by the type of film that assembles each. Apart from the reel, the differences between these two types of rods are the trigger in the porta reels and a ringed smaller and more glued to the blank in casting rods on the spinning. These two types of equipment can be used to fish with the same lure, but it is recommended to use one or the other depending on the techniques used.

One of the great advantages of spinning equipment is its ease of use, so are the teams that I recommend to start is whatever technique or modality that will start.

Even if, if we master well casting, in many cases him/her us easier to cast light lures as vinyl without Plumb or small jerkbaits with our spinning equipment. At sea these teams dominate nearly all of the market, we could say that the use of the “casting” is reduced only to the world of jigging. In this scenario we need very long hauls and collected very fast that usually may not provide us casting teams.

Casting equipment for fishing with lures that require collected very slow, high sensitivity, high accuracy with medium and large weights or to lure that offer great resistance in the collection are recommended. They are highly recommended for fishing with crankbaits, jigs, swinbaits, spinnerbaits, texas lead…

Casting reels are a little slower than the spinning and allow us to work these lures in a way more correct and comfortable as well as allowing us to control at all times the output of the line with your thumb. If we add to this that the casting rods tend to have more rings and smaller we are talking about very sensitive equipment and with a little practice will enable us to a precision casting and presentation of the incredible artificial.

Rods that will be used to catch a spinning tend to be gray 1’5 up to 3 meters in length depending on the baits that are going to use, it far that want to launch with our scenario of fishing (taking into account the foreign coverage and the need to be more or less accurate in our lances). While in small trout streams with lots of vegetation best choice is going to be a short shank on a cliff in Asturias you will need a rod of 3 meters or even there is who will use some longer rods.

After seeing two basic characteristics of the rod as the length and if they are spinning or casting manufacturers usually going to publicize other important parameters to find out more or less as it is a rod without having to prove it. These are the action, power,”Casting weight” and recommended line.

Before each of these parameters more detail there is to say that there is no measurement internationalized over these, each brand has a few eigenvalues and many omitted to specify any of these characteristics therefore are always orientated.

Started by action, sometimes called “speed”, this refers to the place where along this rod bends under load and the speed with which returns to its original position when released the load. Usually we catalogue the reeds in Extra Fast, Fast, Moderate and Slow action being the Extrafast cane folding more near the tip.

Fast rods tend to be more sensitive and accurate, are highly recommended for fisheries that need a quick dunk like when we use vinyl, jigs…On the other hand will rods use more moderate or slow when we use cranckbaits, jerkbaits…

The power of one of Reed refers to the amount of pressure required to Flex or bend the blank, and is typically described by the terms, Ultra Light (UL), Light (L), Medium Light (ML), Medium (M), Medium Heavy (MH), Heavy, (H) and Extra Heavy (XH)…

For practical purposes, may be the power with the weight of the lure, the line that we will use and the size of the fish that we intend to fish.

The Casting Weight is a basic parameter, is the range of weights that is capable of launching properly our cane. It is not recommended to wear gray hair to its limit superior, in the long run they reblandecerán and lost some of their early characteristics.

From the above parameters and layout and size of the rings to the blank manufacturers recommend a range of recommended lines. Mold us to these specifications will do that does not suffer unwanted breaks while we struggle with a fish.

Broadly the most important parameter to consider to choose our Rod will be the weight of the lure that we want to launch or “Casting Weight” and its topology.

Will choose different actions, depending on the type of lure rods more slow to lure offering much resistance (cranckbaits for example) or obtained when fine and cane play a major role in not to break the line. As a counter example should use Heavy rods and fast nailing with jigs in areas of abundant coverage since we need power to nail and get fish and great sensitivity to detect bites.

We could be much time talking about correct for each technique of fishing cane, to be an introductory article will simplify it a bit and choose one or two computers for the most common catches of our geography.

Starting with what would be the spinning more Light or rockfishing where as a versatile rod we will use a Light 1 to 10 grams of C. w… These rods tend to have a finer graft at the tip and assemble many rings to provide them with a great sensibility working thoroughly with small weights.

Most rods for the Rockfishing Caperlan catalog are Axion UL Rkf and the Illicium UL Rkf.

To fish for trout in river we use rods of L or ML of 1’6 to 2’1 m long depending on the size of the river. Lance intervals may vary from 2 to 8 grams for small jerkbaits and spoons to the 5 to 15 grams for the trout lure larger or heavier teaspoons. Especially for the use of jerkbaits for trout would use Fast action rod, so that we can more accurately handle these lures. Gray’s reference to these techniques would be the Wixom in L and ML as well as the seriesIllicium and Axion in a simple range.

The Black Bass is probably the most technical fish of all and which has more specific for each type of lure but as versatile Reed teams advise a MH Fast spinning from 7 to 28 grams and between 2 and 2’1 metres in length. For those who want to refine more with this technical fish I would encourage them to go fishing with two teams. A Reed M of spinning of 5 to 15 grams Fast or Extra Fast as Wixom M vinyl in general and artificial small and a MH’s casting asthe Wixom or Illicium MH for jigs, swinbaits content and some artificial casting more than a certain weight.

As unique equipment for Pike fishing I would advise who start is a MH or H Fast of 10 to 40 grams and 2’1 metres in length. An example would be the illicium SW H. The use of casting for fishing equipment of the Pike is highly recommended, your fishing is usually to great depths where the good sensitivity of the equipment to detect bites is essential and we often use lure of considerable weight. If we add to that which is not usually a fish requiring excessively fast pick-up is an option to take into account.

The Wixom MH and the Illicium MH and H would be preferable rods in our catalogue for those who want to start to fish Pike to casting.

For fishing for catfish spinning and depending on the size of these we will use more or less powerful rods. If we have to fight with big catfish you will have to use rods up to XH with a CW up to 200 grams. If on the contrary catfish aren’t as large rods of up to 80 or 100 grams will be sufficient. It is another type of fish that is recommended fishing casting. Spinning I recommend the Illicium 8′ XXH.

Fishing in salt water the dimensions increase, usually use longer rods with handles longer and more powerful blanks.

Above all when we fish from shore stage is determinant when choosing our cane. The bass fishing in the Mediterranean than in the Atlantic is not the same.

Taking into account these factors for sea bass , we will use a MH 2 ‘ 4 m in length and 10 to 30 Gr. in situations more “Light” up to 15 to 60 Gr. H rods and up to 3 metres in length. From boat to reduce the size of the reeds, used most are sticks as the previous ones but of 2, 2’4 meters in length. The Illiciumand Illicium SW 240, 270 and 290 are recommended for this type of fishing.

For the Bluefish and the reported I recommend rods H from 10 to 40 to 20 to 80 according to lure employees. Similar to sea bass rods length and we determine it according to the scenario. I advise the Illicium SW, the 210 from a boat and the 240 and the 290 from shore.

The tuna fishing requires very powerful Rod capable of pumping fish of more than 50 Kg incredibly powerful. We will use rods XH 2’4-2’5 meters and usually up to about 150 or 200 grams of C.W..It is often useful that these rods are capable of launching relatively small baits although they must keep a good reserve of power to not extend too much fighting with large specimens fatiguing in excess to fisherman and fish. As new this year we suggest theIllicium 8’XXH SW.

Remember that the spinning is a discipline very wide encompassing techniques very specific. It is not buy a cane expensive or cheap, but buy a shank that is specific to our needs. Choose a wrong rod for the use that we are going to give us can lead to serious problems as you launch too short, little sensitivity, too soft reeds to nail some artificial, etc., that will affect in a direct way to the success or failure of our days of fishing.
