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.
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.
Whether they are made from different materials or are suited for various fish species the fact is that combos also differ when it comes to their design. If you were to ask us what we would recommend for a complete beginner we would suggest a spinning combo as it is by far the easiest to use and comes with probably everything you need.
