Steel Bait Casting Rods
As a general utility rod for bait-casting probably nothing is better than a steel rod of the best grade — and there are many poor grades. They are furnished in different styles and in all lengths. The best rods are made with solid-cork hand-grasp and independent butt. They are guaranteed for three years. Any number of agates may be fitted, and German silver trumpet guides are furnished regularly on some of them. Provided the rod is wiped dry after using, to avoid rust, it is always ready for use — no frayed windings, warped joints and the like. Of course, considering a rod as merely a casting machine, the steel rod is not the equal of the good split-bamboo and solid wood rods. The steel rod is, however, about four times better than a split-bamboo of equal price. The steel rod is a good one to learn the game with and, also, a very handy tool at any time. Do not, on a trip which will take you out of striking distance of the tackle shops, depend solely on a steel rod. It cannot be spliced.
