Shimano Rod Notation + Long Rods

Post by sparkyman »

Hi All,

Can anybody advise how Shimano notate their rods to differentiate between Multiplier, Fixed Spool & Combi type guides ?

Also, in searching I noticed that a 13' Beachcaster is no longer a "long" rod, there seems to be 14', 15' and even 16' rods available now?

I'm well behind the times - what's the reasoning between these longer rods ? I'm looking for a fixed spool distance beachcaster and wondering if this is what the longer rods are aimed at ?

Many Thanks
