Avid fishermen know that it is both the tool of the craft and that method in which they wield them is what makes catching
fish a simple or a challenging task. A lot of people may not know this, but there’s
a lot more variants of fishing poles than you think. One of them are whipping fishing poles.
Whipping rods have different names depending on where you are, but they
are similar to the more popular popping rods, which are about 7.5-8.5 feet in
length and can catch medium to large sized fish.
If you’re wondering why it’s called a whipping or a popping rod
it’s because of the strain you would see the shaft of the rod
be under when reeling in fish. There’s a system of pull and release when
catching fish, where you apply both lack to the strength of the catch. When
fisherman apply that strength, the pole’s shaft would create an incredible arc.
The tension of both the string and the flexibility of the shaft makes it
resemble that of a rubber-band about to bounce back after it’s been stretched to
its highest degree. Due to this, it’s important that you don’t buy some shoddy
version of a whipping or popping rod. You have to make sure the shaft is
outfitted with highly durable material and that the grip is incredibly easy to
use and grasp firmly.
If you’re looking to buy a whipping fishing pole
you must know that every single Whipping and popping rods differ from say the jiggling rod, which
is the more conventional type of fishing rod with the spinning reel a lot of
associate with fishing rods. Whipping rods are more directed towards the
experienced fishers, because it is designed to catch decently sized fishes. An
example of a well-made whipping fishing pole is the Okuma Popping Rod
Despite its significant length, the shaft of the pole is made of strong material that is powerful enough to reel in
large catches. People who have purchased this product have only said good
things about it. Two verified customers even said they used it to catch a GT,
which is short for Giant Trevally aka ULUA.
Here is a picture so you can see how big it is. The fish even has the word “giant” in its name which
means that this pole has the power to handle large catches.

Another example of a well-rated whipping/popping rod is the Invicta HG40 Popping Rod. Made out of some of the
strongest material in the world, carbon fiber, this fishing pole is both
lightweight and incredibly powerful. As you’d expect with poles of this quality,
it was handcrafted by experts for experts that can be used for all sorts of
actions and lengths. Since you are aware of the intense arcing motion of the
pole that requires a strong grip, the pole has an ergonomically designed grip
that is both comfortable and easy to hold on to. The grip gives the user better
accuracy when both casting the line and when fighting fish while reeling back
to shore. Although the product only has one person who reviewed it, it is a
perfect 5-star rated product.
the G. Loomis Classic Popping rod collection. These rods were originally used
for catching small game like fish, but people were quick to notice the
potential they had. The rods are available in various lengths for people with
different needs. They are incredibly light, described as having a “featherweight feel” but are surprisingly
strong when it comes to handling large fish such as a “small tarpon or
These can get costly!
Now be cautioned that if you are looking to purchase from
this collection you better have the money for it. Fishing rods such as these
and other ones mentioned are made with high quality material, and none of that
in today’s world come cheap. However, the fishing rods are durable. As one
verified buyer said in their review of G. Loomis Collection, “This is no ugly
stick and is not meant to take a beating.” With that in mind, despite it being
made of strong materials that are able to last a long time, you have to take
care of it properly.
Another Review by a customer of the G. Loomis

you know the quality of G. Loomis rods far surpass other common fishing poles.

that person says they have been fishing for over sixty years.
If you know someone who is an avid fisherman
Looking to catch big game, recommend them a whipping rod such as the ones
mentioned before. Or why not try it out for yourself? I know I said before that
they were designed to catch big game fish such as Giant Trevallies / ULUA’s, but they
were once used to catch very small fishes such as shrimp too. Plus, with them
coming in various lengths and not the standard 7.5-8.5 ft, it can be easy to
When thinking about fishing
You have to prepare yourself for the most intense moments in your life that seem to follow
the most calming ones. You can be by the lake or at the beach sitting in a chair all laid back,
but the next thing you know something is going to bite your bait and try it’s
best to take off. You will see the intense strain and tension the pole will
experience as you try to whip it back towards you. The series of lacking the
pole and then pulling it and reeling with all your strength will be quite the
experience. There’s a lot of places to buy fishing poles, either from your
nearest bait and tackle shop or online.
If you’re looking online I do recommend ulua.com because they have a great selection of
fishing poles, and if you kept in mind those reviews you know that quality made
poles are being distributed from there.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
