When we look at a fishing rod, many anglers will shake the rod up and down subconsciously, and judge the waist strength by bouncing the rod up and down. In fact, this method is not very meaningful. It is basically a kind of psychological comfort. In order to make fishermen feel harder, many fishing rods will achieve their goal by adding two hard sections. This kind of fishing rod will make you feel that it shakes. Very hard.
In fact, the waist strength of such a fishing rod is very poor. The easiest way to judge is to straighten the fishing rod and look at the rod slightly from the back. You will find that the second section suddenly becomes thicker, and the place where it is slightly connected to the rod is weird. Fishing rods are commonly found in some low-end products, and manufacturers who have the strength but don't play with the virtual disdain to do so.
How to judge waist strength
The more accurate way is if two people can let the other person pull the rod and the other person can use the fishing rod to observe the overall curvature, and at the same time can observe whether there is a dead angle. If you are alone, you can put the fishing rod on the roof or flat ground, and you can achieve the same purpose. The fishing rod can also be curved, but it is easy to scratch the fishing rod.
The hardness of the fishing rod is determined by the size of the taper when it is designed. The greater the taper, the harder and straighter the rod will be. The taper is determined by the thinnest part of the handle, which is called the front diameter. This place determines the taper of the entire fishing rod, so looking at the back yuan path is not as meaningful as you imagined. At most, you can find out whether it fits the palm of your hand.
The front element diameter must be determined first during the design of the fishing rod. No matter how you modify it later, the parameters here will not be changed. Once you modify this, the parameters of other sections must be changed, so you can roughly judge the fish by looking here. What is the performance of the rod.
Therefore, the best way to test waist strength is to bend the fishing rod to see the arc, shake it a few times to see if there is a rebound impact, of course, if it can be combated, it is the best, so those actual combat videos are more referential.
