"casting Rods"

Recommended Posts

why do some rods say "casting" on them when we cast with all rods? do they specialize in distance casting or something?

Because some rods are made for SPINNING REELS while others are made for CASTING REELS. or SPINCAST REELS.

Casting = it's to be used with a casting reel or baitcaster as we call it. Nothing special about it.

"Casting" as in bait-cast as opposed to spinning tackle.

I know this lol let me ask it better, so on baitcasting rods the label "casting" is just to represent that it's for baitcasting? i thought maybe it represented that rods primary use like how crankbait casting rods say "cranking" on them.

I wasn't sure if maybe the OP was part sarcasm. lol A "casting" rod is just a non-technique specific bait-casting (usually trigger) rod.

I sometimes troll with my spinning rod, cast with my jigging rod, and jig with my casting rod.

 

I also park in my driveway and drive on the parkway, so what do I know....

 

Tight lines,

Wife: "And which kind is that?"

Me: "That's a spinning reel."

Wife: "Don't all reels spin?"

Me: "Well yeah, but let me show you the difference; now this is the baitcaster, and --"

Wife: "Don't they all cast bait? Or is that JUST for bait, not lures? Or is 'lure' the same as 'bait'?"

Me: "Yes, no, and sometimes. Here, let's back up and start with the spincast reel--"

Wife: "Which spins and casts...?"

Me: "Er... yes, but--"

Wife: "But they all spin... and cast... right...?"

Me: "..."

Wife: "You don't know either, do you?"

Me: "I know what they're called, it's just tricky to explain..."

Wife: "...why there are three different names based on the two things that all three of them do?"

Me: "I'm gonna pull up Wikipedia here, gimme a sec."

Wife: "Wait, don't you want to ask your buddies on Fishbook?"

Me: "IT'S NOT! CALLED! FISHBOOK!!!"
