Saltwater Guides: Made of plastic metal or ceramic. Circles are positioned to the rod′s shaft to control fishing line. In casting rods line guides are on top of the rod. They are smaller to reduce the play in the line and allow for easier casting and quicker retrieve. Spinning rods place the line guides on the rod′s bottom. These guides get larger toward the base of the rod. The number of line guides is determined by the rod′s length as well as by the quality of the rod.
Fiberglass Rods:Typically geared towards beginners. These rods require little maintenance and are of an average weight and solid rod strength. If you are fishing for larger fish such as muskie walleye or pike where you need a heavy durable rod for retrieving the fighting fish fiberglass rods work best.
Action: Affects your casting distance and accuracy also relating to the lure or bait you need and the strength of the reel that should be used. The smaller the fish the lighter the action needed while the heavier the fish the heavier the action. An action may be slow medium fast or a combination (e.g. medium-fast.). An extra fast action rod bends just at the tip. A fast action bends in the last quarter of the rod. A moderate-fast action rod bends over the last third. A moderate action rod bends over the last half. A slow action rod bends all the way into the handle.
