    ok ok i know this is going to seem like a dumb question for most of you, but i don't know what the diffrence between a spinning rod and any other rod, can anyone help me out?
     
  2. Let me post a couple of pictures. That should be the easiest way to explain it.

    Here is a spincast reel. Some refer to this as a closed face reel.

    A spinning rod is made so that the rod eyes are down when in use. A casting rod is made so that the rod eyes are up. Casting rods have smaller eyes that are closer together that spinning rods. Spinning rods usually have larger eyes and the braces back to the rod from the eye are usually longer. This is the case with cattin rods ;) CATKING
     
  5. I guess you did ask about the "rod" but I answered the question of the reel.:rolleyes: Catking answered that part for you as well. Now you got more info than you even asked for.:D
     
  6. You forgot to describe those rods that have the line running through the blank. :eek: Bet those are the kind that are used to sneak up on a musky and get it on the first cast. :rolleyes: :p :D
