Baitcaster Rods

Baitcaster rods are designed for precision and control, so they’re generally more popular with experienced anglers. They pair with baitcasting reels and spincast reels, allowing for more accurate casts.

Baitcaster rods are generally short, [1.7-1.8m] to make single handed casting easier. They suit low profile and round body baitcast reels and spincast reels. Baitcaster rods are known for accuracy and control while fighting fish, ideal for canoes, kayaks, boat and shore fishing where close range accurate casts are required.

Baitcast rods are perfectly suited to Australian bass, Murray cod, Yellowbelly and for stream or lake fishing around snags and structure where accuracy and precision positioning of your lures is important.

In recent years, we’ve seen longer rods come on to the market as anglers crave longer casting distance. This has occurred from light finesse baitcasting rods for bream and bass fisherman, right through to extra heavy swimbait style rods that often measure up past 2.4 metres, designed for land based Mulloway, Kingfish or Tuna fisherman.

How do I care for my rod to ensure it lasts a long time.

Fishing rods are made from varying materials from heavy duty fibreglass (common in old school bait fishing rods) right through to super sensitive lightweight carbon graphite material which are prevalent in most lure castings models on the market today.

Fishing rods are designed to load right through the full extent of the rod - importantly including the middle and butt section. It's important to note that you should never focus the full load zone on to the upper section of a fishing rod, where the rod blank is the thinnest.

The term high-stick is where too much load is placed towards the top of the rod - usually happening when anglers try to lift a fish into a boat, jetty or bank, or try and bend a rod too much whilst snagged in a close proximity to the angler. Often the result of this is a broken rod which will ruin a day on the water and unfortunately is not covered under warranty.

Best practice is to try and avoid lifting the rod beyond 45 degrees to the horizon when loaded up. This ensures the weight is distributed across the entire rod.
