How to choose spinning?

For every spinninist, it does not matter who is startingor experienced, it is important that in hand was a handy tool. Let's try together to figure out how to choose the right spinning. For this we need to answer two important questions:

  1. What kind of fish will you hunt with this spinning?
  2. On what waters are you going to fish?

Why is it important for us what kind of fish are we going to catch? Let's say you were lucky, and you caught a pike with a light spinning kilogram that way at 15, the chances of getting it out of the water will be zero. For this production, this class of spinnings does not fit. How to choose a spinning on a pike?

Spinning test

So, we approached one of the maincharacteristics - spinning test. This characteristic indicates the weight spectrum of the baits that are optimally suited for this rod. Suppose, when choosing a spinning rod, you saw on the rod 8-25g. This means that if you take a bait weighing less than 8 grams, you risk when casting, just do not feel the bait, and taking a bait more than 25 grams, you simply can not properly drop it. Remember, the greater the weight of the lure calculated the spinning the greater its stiffness. There are four classes of spinning:

  • Heavy (40 grams or more)
  • Medium (15 - 40 grams)
  • Lightweight (7-15 grams)
  • Ultralight (up to 7 grams)

Spinning structure

Another characteristic that needs to be guided when choosing a spinning is the spinning system. There are three types: fast, medium and slow.

With a fast system with load on the tipThe upper third of the rod works. With the middle system under load, the upper half works, the rod with such a system is also called a semi-parabolic. In the case of a slow build, the deflection is three-fourths of the total length, otherwise such rods are called parabolic. The structure we need to know for more accurate casting bait. Quick build helps us to accurately cast the bait and provides the greatest sensitivity when catching. But the casting distance in this case is the smallest. Rods with a slow system allow the most far to throw the bait, but have the least sensitivity. As for the length, then you need to decide where you fish. In the case of fishing from the boat, you will have enough length of the rod to two meters, in case of fishing from the shore, choose a rod more authentic, for example, 2.7 meters, such a rod will allow you to make the longest casts.

Material for spinning

What material to choose for spinning? If you are limited in means and do not have the opportunity to fork out for spinning, then for you the most successful option will be spinning from fiberglass. Cheap and unpretentious. Such spinners have a large mass and, if you are going to often throw spinning, then you should have very strong hands. They are suitable for fishing by trolling.

Rods made of carbon fiber, carbon fiber, graphite,carbon all the same. Strong enough, and most importantly lightweight fishing rods. Tackles made of carbon fiber have differences in graphite content. The rule is simple, the lower the module, the more flexibility, the more flexibility, the shorter the casting range and the lower the reaction speed. Greater rigidity makes the rod more fragile, but more sensitive. The lightest carbon fiber rods. Optimal choice.

If we add fiber from fiber glass to the carbon fiber reinforcement, we obtain a composite. Rods made of composite are less successful than carbon fiber rods, but much cheaper.

Spinning rings

The last point that will help you answerthe question of how to choose the spinning, which you want to disassemble in this article is the spinning rings. Their main purpose is to distribute the fishing line on the rod form. Therefore, the number of rings affects the casting distance and the fish's survival. As for the material from which the rings are made, the most common rings are SIK, silicon carbide. These are reliable rings that usually do not fail. Their great advantage is low weight and great strength. When choosing the spinning, you should pay attention to how well the rings are fixed and on the integrity of the rings, because even a small chipping leads to a quick grinding of the line.
