Guys, is there a recommended lenght of reel rod to be used off a small fishing boat (bahri)?

Also, there is a Xzoga Rod for sale in a forum, with lots of specifcations - which are the main features of the rod itself to compare when considering a rod used purely from a boat?

This particular rod is 200 - is it the material that makes it expensive or is that the going rate for a good rod?

thanks

That Xzoga is a top of the range jigging rod, specifically designed for jigging and large fish.

What type of boat fishing do you intend to do, what size is your reel and roughly what do you plan to target.

Rods are usually designated by line class and lure weight as the main ratings, though on the smaller lighter rods things may be a little different.

Then you have rods meant for popping (7ft), Standard spinning, 6ft6 etc, jigging usually under 6ft though also a matter of preference etc

bahri for that type of fishing a few Euro rod will be more than enough. Go to Ta Bormla (Mosta) or to Spitec (Rabat) an they can help u in making a good decision. I have a rodnd reel that cost 18 Euro and I brought up a Hmar of 1,2 kg and I tell u it was fun seeing the rod bet double with the small reel going berzerk yep ...........
