Expensive boat rods do they catch more fish ???

Two boat rods and two different costs but which one has caught more fish and hasn’t broken yet ?? The question is do expensive boat rods catch more fish, last longer, look better etc.etc. against an equally good looking high workmanship but low cost boat rod.

I put these two rods into my arsenal end of 2011 and fish with both last year and a couple of times so far this year and guess what yes the more expensive rod has caught fish nice Pollock and Cod but the cheapo X fibre Mako 12lb and 20lb class rods have done the business as far as quality fish, a 19lb+ Turbot, 19lb+ Pollock and plenty of Cod to over 20lb so the fish aren’t choosy on what rod they get caught by are they.

I have used the 20lb class Mako for wrecking and the 12lb for plaice/turbot fishing and I like it for virtue of the fact you can use them and at les than £25 quid you don’t worry about breaking it and so far they have taken the strain no problem. The Akita rods are just as nice to use in being very light and full of all the action you could want to feel good fish.

The point I am making cheap rods can perform just as well as the more expensive and still make fishing enjoyable and without worry too. As I get to sample and test all the rods I sell and go out of my way to try and break them so far apart from my own clumsy handling and managing to try and wind a swivel through a tip ring that is all I have managed so far.

I may be talking myself out of some extra profits and what I will say if you want to look the part buy the Akita if you’re on a budget buy the Mako or one of my other low cost rods, even the Akita at just under £70 quid it’s not a bank account buster is it.

Travel rods for sea boat and lure fishing

We are well under ways getting all the photo and video work completed for our visual Marketing of the new Fishzone range of rods and good they are looking too. I have just bought for myself the full set of Akita Japanese boat rods. Class ranging from 8-12lbs, 12-20lbs, 20-30lbs and 30-50lbs is the only one I haven’t got just yet but it will be here before the wrecking season gets going and regular trips aren’t cancelled.

I digressed there as this post is about the new travel rods, when I first took one out of the case and started to assemble it I noticed the spigots wouldn’t allow the section to slide all the way along it. I was nearly tempted to get some wet and dry and ease it so they closed up but then I thought best speak to the company boss who imports them.

Good job I didn’t get the wet and dry out as the rods are finished that way for the very simple reason it allows the joints that are continually being made to bed themselves in over a period of time. Now if I had eased them then the obvious will happen and even I didn’t think about it at the time, if they fitted perfectly from new then a few years down the road they will have become very loose and allow sections to twist so some clever forward planning has already allowed for this, “Clever These Japs Eh !!”

Here are a couple of images showing you what I am talking about:
