Jerkbait & baitcaster rods
You want something different than a spinning rod with spinning reel or do you need more power? Then a baitcaster rod with reel might be a possibility. Both a jerkbait rod as a baitcaster rod can be recognized by the "trigger" grip, a sort of handle on where you can put your finger behind, also known as pistol grip. Because you fish with a baitcasting reel, this grip makes sure you hold the rod firmly and it can not rotate. The advantage of these fishing rods is that the reel provides extra strength and you can throw with your reel in one hand. There are also differences between these rods.
These rods are often also called baitcasting rods. They are basically the same rods as the spinning rods, only then for a baitcasting reel. Where care must be taken is that most baitcaster rods can not be used for light weighted lures. A reel casts less fine for light lures, but often throws again fine for heavy lures such as large swimbaits or softbaits. Often, a drop reel (which is a flat, baitcaster reel) is the best for this purpose.
You can also get jerkbaits with as a strong spinning rod, but a jerkbait rod with baitcasting reel is the best way to go jerkbait fishing.
Jerkbaits are often heavy and with a stiff jerkbait rod with reel you can easily cast them and reel them in. Jerkbait rods are officially up only 220 cm long and can be combined well with a round reel for example, ABU Garcia. Most jerkbait rods are made of 1 part and sometimes 2 parts. 1 part rods have a better feeling during a drill, but the rods are funerable during transport. Rods made of 2 parts have the exact opposite characteristics.
