Graphite vs Fiberglass Rods


Graphite rods are lighter in weight, more sensitive, and have a faster response than a fiberglass rod. Graphite rods are ideal when a lot of casting and retrieving is required and when it is vital for you to feel the most subtle bite. Fiberglass rods are very durable and less expensive than graphite. Fiberglass is often used in less expensive rods. Ideal applications include downrigging and big game fishing.
