Which fishing rod should you get first? Which rods give you the best “bang for the buck?” Are there rods that can do it all? Should I use a spinning reel or a baitcaster? These are questions we get constantly so today we’re showing you the top rods every angler should own. We’re explaining the different lengths, actions, and powers so you know how to get the most for your money when you’re shopping for rods.

Choosing 5 rods proved more difficult than we expected. Matt and Tim had no problem deciding on the first 4 but when it came to that 5th rod they just couldn’t agree. As a result, you’re actually getting the top 6 rods every angler should own! Whether you’re a brand new angler, looking for one rod that can do it all, or a seasoned pro with an affinity for high-end gear, we’ve got you covered.

Today’s video description is very detailed. We’ve broken down the top 6 rods into 3 different categories. The first section is dedicated to versatile high-end gear, the second to mid-priced combos that bring the best “Bank For the Buck”, and the last section, to “budget” options that far exceed exceptions. The links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item.
