The main function of the rod holder is to support the fishing rod, which can free your hands when fishing. From a functional point of view, it is divided into two types. One is the form of inserting with the ground, which is directly inserted into the soil, mainly without a fishing chair. And the fishermen's choice of fishing box. The second type is a rod without a floor, which can only be used when it is connected to a fishing chair and a fishing box. This type of rod is currently the most mainstream.
The main pole, the horn head, and the rear hanger (antenna) make up a complete set of poles. The main rod is the most important part of the frame, and it is also the most expensive part. Its material is mainly made of three different types: aluminum alloy, stainless steel, and carbon, and the price is from low to high. The disadvantage of aluminum alloy is heavy. The joints of the expansion joints are mostly made of ordinary plastic material, which is rough. The stainless steel material is characterized by light and thin, but it will be relatively soft because of the length. It will cause serious problems when supporting long and heavy rods. Bending phenomenon; carbon material is the most mainstream material, light, hard, and various coatings, but the disadvantage is that it is more expensive than the other two materials.
Selection skills: The first thing to consider is the length. Generally speaking, the main rod of 2.1 meters is sufficient for fishing rods within 5.4 meters; if you often use fishing rods of 6.3 meters and above, the minimum length should not be less than 2.4 meters, otherwise it will It is easy to cause the front part of the fishing rod to be too heavy after the start, and the handle is cocked.
The second consideration is the hardness. After picking up the main rod to fully pull out the expansion joint, place the front end on the ground and press it down with a little force to observe the bending phenomenon of the main rod. If it is obviously bent, it means that it is too soft and thin. It does not matter if it is a short rod, but a long rod and heavy rod are not suitable.
The last is the expansion joint connector, which is basically made of plastic (rubber) and metal. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. The plastic material rotates easily, but it is easily damaged after frequent stress; the metal material is not easy to damage, but the quality of the product is easy to "slip" wire". So when choosing, you need to turn it a few times to see if it is smooth.
