There is much more to fishing rods than meets the eye. In this video I explain why expensive fishing rods are not necessarily stronger than cheap fishing rods. I also explain why I just recently broke my Venom fishing rod. I am not a technical person, and may be punching slightly above my weight here, but I think that you find this video particularly interesting as there is so much more to fishing rods than meets the eye. Graphite based fishing rods can come in many forms. There are so many different variables of graphite, graphite composites etc… Fiberglass fishing rods are similar, but maybe not quite as complex. The fiberglass fishing rod has been around much longer than the graphite fishing rod, and tends to live much longer as well as it is not as prone to being broken. So, the graphite fishing rods are more expensive and break much easier. Why on earth would anybody buy one then? Why not just buy a cheaper fiberglass fishing rod? In this video, talking fishing rods with Robbie Alexander I explain it all in a simple form that most people would understand. And for what it is worth, I could not explain fishing rods in a more technical form even if I wanted to because I am not an expert in that field. I use my fishing rods, I don’t study them.
