What is a spinning rod?
Spinning Rod handle on a bass rod. Spinning rods require larger guides as the line comes off of the spool. Spinning rods don't require as many guides as a casting reel, as the line on a spinning reel is pulling "below" the rod when you are fishing.
What is a casting rod?
A casting rod is equipped with a reel seat that positions a spincast or baitcast reel above the rod and all the rod guides face upward. When fighting a fish on a casting rod the rod bends over with the guides facing up so the force of the fish pushes the line down on the eyelets and the rod blank.
What is difference between casting and spinning fishing rods?
The way the casting is setup is by pushing downward on the rod eyelets, forcing them into the casting rod. ... The main difference between the reels is that the spinning reel makes friction which leads to easier snapping of the line while the casting reel lets the line run smoothly.
