Saltwater Casting & Conventional Rods: The reel and line are seated on top of the rod and the trigger grip lets you hold the rod securely while releasing the thumb bar/line release. A quick taper at the rod tip for accuracy and a large backbone at the lower portion of the rod for stability. Saltwater bait-casting rods can be made from fiberglass or graphite. Fiberglass is more durable and has greater lifting power than graphite which makes it a preference for larger fish such as tuna and yellowtail. Graphite rods are more bait sensitive and work well for surf fishing and open water when bait is cast over a greater distance.
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.
Action determines how much control you have over the fish. The faster the action the more pressure you can put on the fish. The power is your rod weight so deciding the type of fish you want to catch will determine the power you need for your rod.
