Choosing the Right Rod & Reel Combo
Regardless whether you’re a beginning angler or a seasoned pro, having the right fishing gear can make the difference in having a successful fishing expedition. No matter what type of fishing you prefer, rod and reel combos are assembled by experts in the field saving you time and money on assembling your own.
Available for both freshwater and saltwater fishing, fishing combos can be broken down into several basic types, some of which include:
- Freshwater Baitcasting Combos—Baitcasting rod and reel combos are recognized for a number of benefits that include greater control, fewer tangles and better performance with heavier line than some other options
- Spinning Combos—Spinning rod and reel combos are often valued for increased sensitivity and accuracy in a variety of conditions. Spinning rod combos range in length from just under five feet up to ten feet.
- Saltwater Combos—Built to withstand the corrosive properties of saltwater, these combos are your best option for ocean fishing.
For saltwater, longer spinning rods with extended handles are often paired with oversized reels to achieve greater distance. Freshwater rod and reel combos differ significantly, since extended distance is not always required.
