Spinning around the UK shoreline for predatory species such as Bass, Pollack, Wrasse and Mackerel can be great sport but you need the correct lure rod to ensure you have the advantage.
There is a lot to thing about when you are picking your next sea spinning rod. The first thought is the length. A longer rod will definitely cast a lure further but it can be a hinderance in two ways. The first is when rock hopping, a longer rod can actually get it the way. The more serious downfall is the ability to effectively work certain lures. It generally bends more so when you want to twitch a shallow diving lure or ‘pop’ a surface lure it takes a lot of effort to produce a less than desired action.
Next is the casting weight of your sea spinning rod. As a rule, if you are working metals and soft plastic lures, its generally best to use a rod with a casting range of around 10-35g. You can still work the lures very well and cast them a long way as the rod is soft enough. If you are focusing more on hard lure which work on the surface and just underneath, its best to have a rod with a stiffer tip. The stiffer tip allows you to work the lure with less effort which results in a better action and more fish.
Next is fittings. Having a rod with cheap guides can affect the durability and casting distance. The most important thing is that the rings have a high quality ‘braid friendly’ insert. This is common on the vast majority of decent rods but its always worth checking before you treat yourself.
