Fishing rods are very important equipment for fishing man. A good fishing rod can make the angler more comfortable in controlling the fish, make the other operations of the angler more leisurely, and make the various operations of the angler more accurate and in place. Today I’ll tell my fishing friends.
First, let’s explain the material of the fishing rod. At present, the most important fishing rods on the market are carbon fiber fishing rods, and a very small number of glass fiber fishing rods. Glass fiber materials are almost out of the market. The reason why they can still exist is that they are cheap and strong, but the fatal disadvantage is that they are too heavy. Carbon fiber material has advantages other than price, and there are no fatal disadvantages, so it is the absolute mainstream in the market.
Both glass fiber and carbon fiber are rolled into rod sections of fishing rods with cloth like raw materials, and then formed into fishing rods. “Cloth” is the main raw material, and the quality of “cloth” directly determines the quality of the fishing rod. I won’t introduce the fishing rod made of glass fiber. I will mainly introduce the raw material of carbon fiber fishing rod, that is, carbon cloth. In short, the most important indicator of carbon cloth is the carbon content of carbon cloth. The carbon cloth with higher carbon content has the lightest mass under the same strength. That is to say, the fishing rod made of carbon cloth with higher carbon content has stronger strength and higher hardness under the same quality. Simply put, the higher the carbon content, the lighter, harder and stiffer the fishing rod.
Fishermen choose fishing rods according to some standards or parameters. This is because the fishing rod, as a commodity, must have various parameters or standards, but some of these standards are very important to anglers, and some can be sloppy. For example, the first refer to the thickness of the fishing rod. The retracted length refers to the length of the rod when it is retracted. The number of nodes refers to the total number of nodes of the rod. These indicators can be sloppy, but there is a little deviation, and the current production process will not be too poor.
When selecting a fishing rod, attention should be paid to weight, toughness (or strength, fishing weight), and tonality. These indicators are important indicators of a fishing rod, and they are closely related to each other. They are also the foundation of a fishing rod. Among these three indicators, as consumers, the indicator of toughness is not easy to detect. We can only place our hopes on the conscience of manufacturers and do not have too much moisture. The rest of the weight is easy to detect. Just weigh it. It should be noted that the weight marked by the manufacturer is the bare middle of the fishing rod, which does not include the front and rear plugs. In this regard, some manufacturers have resorted to trickery by using heavy back plugs to offset the problem of heavy poles.
Tonality is the standard of the hardness of the pole. This index means that when the fishing rod is stressed, it bends at that position. The closer the bent position is to the position of the rod tip, the harder the rod is. For example, when the fishing rod with 28 adjustment is stressed, it bends at two tenths of the end of the rod tip. Similarly, 37 is at three tenths and 19 is at one tenth. Now the popular hard pole is basically 28 key.
Why is it that these three items are the root of the fishing rod and closely related? Because the difference between fishing rods is mainly based on the price difference, cheap fishing rods tend to highlight one indicator at the expense of others. If the fishing rod has high tonality and light weight, the toughness of the fishing rod will be very poor and brittle. If the fishing rod has light weight and good toughness, the weight will be very heavy. Of course, this is a problem with fishing rods with relatively low prices. A good fishing rod will have a good balance between the three. If you work hard on the raw materials and production technology, the price will be higher. Anglers should choose cheap fishing rods. I personally think that the standard of sacrificing weight is the most reliable. That is to say, if the fishing rod is cheap, don’t consider the weight.
