Choosing your baitcasting rod & reel combos

The rod and reel are the heart of fishing. The brand, the length, and the specifications are all components in making the right choice for you, so how do you narrow the selection down to the perfect baitcasting rod & reel combo for you?Brands of baitcasting rod & reel combos

One way to sift through the huge selection of baitcasting rod & reel combos is by brand. There are a number of brands that sell rod & reel combos, but some are more well-known than others. Shakespeare and Shimano are two brands that are known for their quality and technology. While Shimano began as a cycling company, but soon came to produce world-class fishing and tackle equipment. Shakespeare fishing rod & reel combos date all the way back to 1896, when its founder wanted to find a better way to reel his line back on its spool.

Choosing a brand of baitcasting rod & reel combos comes down to trustworthy brands with quality products.

Lengths of baitcasting rod & reel combos

Another way to decide which baitcasting rod & reel combo is right for you is to consider the rod length. The length of your rod has a lot to do with how the rod handles, which type of fishing it’s suited to, and how comfortable it is to manoeuvre. For example, you might choose a different rod length in your fly fishing rod & reel combos than you would in your baitcasting rod & reel combos. Before you make your choice, consider the type of fishing you’ll be doing. Generally, longer rods are more balanced but can become difficult to handle because of their size.
