    Spinning Blank into casting rod
from ukey28

Rated:

 I can't find a casting rod that spans 1/8 - 1/2oz. Most start at 1/4. There are many spinning rods that are rated for 1/8 - 1/2. Is it possible to build a decent fast action casting rod on a spinning rod blank?

   Why can't you from Jeff Hahn  4/29/2012 8:12:30 PM
 Why can't you just ignore the rating listed on the rod blank? Most of these ratings are just used a guideline or an estimate, rather than some absolute rating. Find a rod that feels good to you and use it to fish what you want. I use several casting rods for fishing an 1/8 ounce jig or small worm with an 1/8 ounce sinker that are rated for much heavier baits.

   yep, do it all of the time from Fisherboy #10852 #10852  4/30/2012 5:20:56 AM
 That's the beauty of custom, to fill a need where a factory option dosen't exist.


Many rod companies use the same blank for casting and spinning rods. So it has been done forever.


This might be an opportunity for that first rod build. If you need any help just ask.
