Spinning rod

Choosing a rod fishing rod generally falls into one of two broad categories: casting rods and spinning rods. We'll be looking at the latter model in particular, for its versatility of use.

Spinning rods offer a number of advantages. For example, they are easy to handle and come in a wide range of lengths and powers. A rod spinning fishing rod will easily reach long casting distances.

Different brands have developed entire ranges of fishing rods that have a wide reputation among anglers.

Here are just a few names:

  • Spinning Rod Westin W3
  • Spinning rod Spro Mimic
  • Rod spinning Spro Freestyle Litz
  • Rod spinning Shimano Beastmaster Fx
  • Rod Spinning Illex Night Shadows
  • Spinning Rod Sakura Ionizer
  • Spinning rod Daiwa Prorex
  • Rod Spinning St Croix Mojo
  • Spinning Rod Hearty Rise Red Shadow

What's more, entire brands have a great reputation across their entire range. These include spinning rod Abu Garcia and spinning rod St Croix.

In this maze of choices, you'll need to take many aspects into account to make the right choice. Between power, action, construction and the quality of the rings, you'll need to rack your brains to make the right choice.

We're going to try and guide you a little between a rod spinning shimano beastmaster, a spinnning Sakura Ionizer finesse or a spinning Spro xtender.

Why are they called spinning rods?

The name comes in direct contrast to casting rods. In fact, it was the name of the reel that led to a different name for the rods. These fishing rods will therefore accommodate a spinning reel which is located below the rod.

The fixed spool, which only rotates during the fight, has led to the development of a series of rods with very specific advantages. For example, the spinning rod Westin W3 will come in a range of lengths for long-distance casting.

The guides will be larger so you can cast your lure as far as possible. The Shimano Beastmaster FX spinning rods will come in lengths of up to 3 m for easy fishing from shore.

They can be of different qualities depending on your use. For example, they will be specially treated for sea use on a tenryu injection sp xh, whereas freshwater use does not require this.

The rod spinning fishing rod also has a handle. It can be solid for use over the whole forearm, in EVA foam or cork as on the St Croix Mojo spinning rods.

Finally, a spinning rod can also include small accessories to make your life easier. These include a cover to protect it from rubbing, like the neoprene covers on the Sakura Ionizer spinning rods.

It can also be small details and technical innovations. For example, the Spro Freestyle Xtender spinning range has a slot in the butt to fold the rod in 2 for transport.

Major brands and manufacturers

Despite the obvious need for technical sophistication, a large number of brands have developed their own vision of the rod spinning range. From all horizons and all countries, models have had to be adapted for all techniques and all species of carnivorous fish, including sea and freshwater.

The United States, with its father-and-son following of enthusiasts, offers a huge choice, with brands that set the standard the world over. Americans can choose from a spinning rod St Croix or an Abu Garcia spinning model.

Japan, also a country of fishermen, is not to be outdone, with brands that have made their mark through their quality and unique expertise. Their mastery of carbon materials and state-of-the-art blanks have given them a huge advantage over the competition.

The European market is not to be outdone, with series of rods that are even more suited to our situation. To fish with certain very French techniques or species specific to our part of the world, a series of rod Hearty Rise Red Shadow or a Illex Night Shadows spinning rod will have a definite advantage.

Daiwa with its range of spinning rod Daiwa Prorex specific to Europe is not to be outdone, just like Sakura which offers a wide range of products for all horizons and all anglers.

Questions to ask yourself to make the right choice

To make the right choice for your future rod, it's important to ask yourself some very important questions. Fishing is full of little details that you shouldn't forget if you want your days to be, and remain, a real pleasure.

The length of the rod is surely one of the most important aspects. It should take into account your casting needs, the areas you fish regularly and your ease of use. For example, a long rod will be comfortable casting long distances in open spaces, whereas the opposite will be true on a tight spot.

The power of the rod is the second point that should not be overlooked. It gives you the range of use. If you don't know the weight of your lures, then it's time to use the kitchen scale. Once you have a clearer idea, you can choose a range that suits you.

Action is the third important point. We'll opt for very fast actions, known as extra fast, for fishing with soft lures. Intermediate actions, called fast or tip actions, should be chosen for more versatile fishing. The softer actions should be reserved for the use of swimming fish, whether for surface use or crankbaits reaching greater or lesser depths.

Rings can be the last point. They need to be adapted to the line you will be using and designed for use in your fishing environment, especially if it is salty.

Spinning rods are the type of fishing rod most regularly used in France and Europe in general. They are fitted with a spinning reel that can be installed under the rod. The choice is immense and never stops growing from one year to the next, with models that are ever more advanced and ever more technical. We'll help you make sense of it all.

The power of spinning rods

Spinning rods have a particularly wide range of uses. That's why it's vital to match your choice to the lures you're going to use, whether they're of the lightest weight or the heaviest. Making the wrong choice could prove to be either very disappointing for your spinning rod or dangerous for it. This criterion should be one of the first to choose.

For example, you'll generally be fishing between 1 and 14g for perch, between 0.5 and 10g for river trout, between 5 and 40g for zander and between 10 and 100g or more for pike. But spinning rod can also be chosen for other reasons, once you've taken this into account.

The technical characteristics of a spinning rod

Choosing a rod can be difficult, but you'll be able to sort through the long list of spinnng rods we have in stock.

  • Length is one of the first aspects to consider. You're more likely to choose short rods for boat, float tube or street fishing. On the other hand, all fishing requiring long casting distances will require longer spinning rods.
  • The size of the rod can be an obstacle if it is not chosen at the outset. Models are now available in 2-strand, single-strand and multi-strand versions. Depending on your use and your requirements, it's important to have thought about this aspect with reduced overall dimensions for travel fishing rods.
  • The number and quality of the guides you choose will give you confidence in your rod. Opt for components such as Fuji for an ideal glide or Alps to face titanic battles.
