What does PE stand for in braid? The basic construction of a braided line is thin strands of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), known as PE, braided together in either 4, 8, 12 or 16 strands.
What does rod rating mean?
The rating on the rod indicates the most suitable breaking strain line to use on the rod, with a correct drag for that line set on the reel. The rating is designed to achieve a working curve in the rod, without reaching a lock-up point. The rod should bend and flex as the fish lunges and darts in its efforts to escape.
What does fishing rod capacity mean?
Every fishing rod has a weight rating, which is also referred to as its power rating. This rating is given on a scale from Ultra Light to Extra Heavy, and indicates how much weight is needed to bend the pole. Essentially, the weight (or power) rating of a fishing pole refers to its resistance to bending.
What are PE ratings?
In short, the P/E ratio shows what the market is willing to pay today for a stock based on its past or future earnings. A high P/E could mean that a stock's price is high relative to earnings and possibly overvalued. Conversely, a low P/E might indicate that the current stock price is low relative to earnings.
How do you check a rod action?
To check the action of a rod, place the tip on carpeted flooring (to avoid damaging it) and gently flex the rod from the tip. This will give you a good sense of how the rod will perform when the blank loads during the back cast, when you set a hook, or when you're simply pulling baits through the water.

What test curve is best for carp fishing?
A 3lb-test-curve rod is now classed as an all-rounder, with 3.5lb and 3.75lb test curves more suited to casting long distances. A 2.75lb or 2.5lb rod will be softer and arguably more fun but won't have huge casting power.
What is a light rod good for?
As the names suggest, light power and fast action are for lightweight fish, like panfish, bluegill, crappie, and small trout. Light action rods lack stiffness and backbone that's necessary for heftier catches like bass, sea bass, catfish, trout and walleye.
