Which fishing rod would be right for me?
There are several different types of fishing rods to choose from, and the one that you pick will depend on what kind of fishing you do the most. If you are not quite sure which of these Shimano rods would be the right choice for you, then check out our handy guide below:
Spinning rods: Spinning rods are amongst the most popular types, and they have are usually smaller and lighter than the typical casting rod. The reel hangs underneath the rod, and this is a popular type of rod used by amateur anglers.
Casting rods: Bait casters, beach casters and other casting rods have been purposely designed so that you are able to place your bait and lure correctly into your target spot., The reel is used on the top of the rod, and
Surf rods: Surf rods are usually long which allows for a heavy sinker and bait, thus allowing the angler to cast further or to use a two-handed casting technique. They can be used from the beach, rocks, or from the shore#
Overhead rods: These are the classic rods used for boat fishing, and they work alongside an overhead reel and yet are shorter and more powerful than a casting rod. These are designed for catching big game fish, and you should not cast with these. Just drop the line in, and wait for your catch of the day to start biting.
Telescopic Combos: Telescopic combos are popular amongst beginners, as they include everything that you need to get fishing right away.
How should I care for and maintain my Shimano rod?
If your care for your Shimano rod properly, it will last for years to come, helping you to keep catching for longer. After you have finished your fishing for the day, always wash your rod down with fresh water, being careful to remove any salt or residue from the ocean. Wipe down your rod properly with a damp sponge or cloth and then allow it to dry off. When cleaning, pay particular notice to the guide and reel seat, as these are touched continuously while you are fishing. Check your rod and guides carefully for any damage. Even the smallest fracture in a guide can snap your fishing line. Store rods when they have been properly cleaned and thoroughly dried, and always avoid the use of any harsh chemicals.
