Casting rods and trigger rods

4 posts in this topic

What is the difference between a casting rod and a trigger rod?I always wondered what the difference is.I'm guessing it has two trigger things on the bottom of the rod instead of the usual one.

Well, you could say that a "casting rod" requires the use of a levelwind reel, while a "spinning rod" needs a spinning reel.  Some might say that a casting rod is a shorter stick with a pistol grip while a trigger stick has the straight handle.  I say it can go either way.

Casting rods and trigger rods are one in the same. Most 5'-6" casting rods have pistol grips, and most of the ones over that length are trigger rods.  Spinning rods don't usually have triggers or pistol  grips. Although I had an ultralite Daiwa spinning rod at one time with a pistol grip  :-?

The rods are the same made for baitcasting. The difference is in the reel seat, a casting seat has no trigger (made for the larger casting reels), were as a trigger seat has the trigger (much like you see on the majority of baitcasting rods today).
