How to choose the best fishing rod

Choosing the best fishing rod is essential in ensuring a successful and enjoyable angling experience. With the vast variety of options available in the market, it can be quite challenging to make the right decision. However, by keeping a few key factors in mind and investing in top-quality fishing equipment, you can significantly enhance your chances of landing the perfect catch.

Determine your target fish species and the environment in which you'll be fishing. Different fish species require specific rod lengths, power, and action to effectively catch them. For instance, lighter rods are ideal for smaller species, while heavier rods work best for larger fish. Also, consider whether you'll be fishing in freshwater or saltwater, as this will affect the materials used in the construction of the rod.

Evaluate the rod's materials and construction. Focusing on the critical factors of evaluating a fishing rod's materials and construction, examining aspects such as rod length, material, power, and the balance between price and quality. Fishing Rod Length. We offer fishing rods that vary in terms of length from 1.68 to 1.9 m. longer fishing rods can be cast farther, but they are a little harder to manage than shorter rods. Shorter rods are more powerful but don’t really make a long cast. So depending on whether you are fishing for something big near your boat or throwing a topwater walking lure - we will have a fishing rod option to better fit your needs.

  • Fishing Rod Material. Our fishing rods are made of either graphite or composite materials. Graphite rods are lightweight, while reasonably stiff. Composite materials take the best of both worlds: graphite and fibreglass rods. They are also lightweight enough, super flexible and versatile - they are a great fit for almost any kind of fishing. Both graphite and composite rods are sensitive to the bait. So no matter what species of fish it is you are trying to catch and what kind of water you are making a cast on - you will find a perfect fishing rod.
  • Rod Power. The rod’s weight defines its ability to withstand various levels of pressure. This affects the kind of fish you can catch with the rod. We offer fishing rods in different weights from 2-5 kg to 6-10kg, so whether you want to catch bigger or smaller fish - there is a rod with just the right amount of pressure resistance for that.
  • Price and quality. Our selection of fishing rods comes from the list of top picks based on personal experience and expertise. We also offer our fishing rods for one of the most reasonable prices on the market, as we are all about providing that perfect fishing experience to everyone, from those just starting out with fishing to those who have been doing it for years. So if you are looking for great quality coupled with great prices - look no further.

Ensure that the fishing rod feels comfortable in your hands. The grip and reel seat should provide a secure and ergonomic hold, enabling you to fish for longer periods without fatigue.


What types of fishing rods are there?

There are several ways to divide rods into types:

  • By length. There are shorter rods and there are longer ones. They can range from 4 to 14 feet. Shorter ones are stronger and easier to manoeuvre, but longer rods can be used to make a long cast.
  • By material. There are fibreglass rods, graphite rods and composite tods. Each of these types differs in terms of stiffness, flexibility and weight, so they are used for different kinds of fish and waters.
  • By bending. There are fast, medium and slow action rods, and that is defined by which part of the fishing rod bends. Whether the rod bends in the middle, top or bottom part affects how fast the rod comes from the loaded position to its original shape. Rods that bend at the bottom part are slow action rods, the ones that bend in the middle are the medium action rods and the ones that bend at the top part are the fast action rods.
  • By rod power, Rod power is basically how much pressure a rod can withstand and that is defined by the rod's weight. The rule of thumb is “heavier rods for larger fish and lighter rods for smaller fish”.


What are the best fishing rods?

Which fishing rod will be the best for you depends on your personal fishing situation. For example, if you are after some larger fish, it is better to stick to heavier, shorter, fast action rods, and if you want to catch some smaller fish, opt for more lightweight, probably longer, slow action rods.


What material are fishing rods made of?

Fishing rods are mainly made of three types of materials: fibreglass, graphite and composite material, which is usually either a mixture of fibreglass and graphite or one of them with some other modern material. Rods made of fibreglass are considered traditional - they are heavier, stronger, more durable and more affordable but have less sensitivity. Graphite fishing rods are very stiff and super lightweight, but they are on a little pricier side when compared to the fibreglass ones. Composite fishing rods are flexible, sensitive and quite lightweight - basically, they take the best from both materials. The latter can be used on almost any kind of water.
