Fishing rod is a kind of fishing tool. It looks like a slender multi section rod. It usually has a handle, which gradually becomes thin and sharp from the handle to the rear end. It should be used by connecting a fishing line with a hook with bait. Up to now, more functional fishing rods have emerged, which are the knowledge that a fisherman must understand

When choosing in a fishing shop, you should first look at the instructions There are instructions on the outer packing box and the rod handle.
Contraction length: generally divided into rod contraction length (the contraction length of platform rod is generally 1 m to 1.1 m);
Carbon content: above 98%;
Weight: the weight of 3.6m rod should be less than 85g, the weight of 4.5m rod should be less than 120g, and the weight of 5.4m rod should be less than 180g.
