Can a rod be built for both spinning and conventional? is there such a backbone that can bend both ways? if there is, pls advise of a place to build such a rod. thanks

    Well... such a rod would only work if there is no backbone. Else the rod will tend to bend in 1 single plane only. However, I'm not really sure if there is such a blank available in SG.

    Good luck hunting for it.

    i believe only linear guide / inner guide rod will not have a backbone.

    i'm using penn powergraph bass surf, 11'6'' long.

    its blank is builted for both fixed-spool and multipler.

    there are a few more penn rods that can be used for both reel.

    Don't think so, backbone / stripper guide / guide spacing is a problem for medium to heavy tackle. For light tackle you can do either way you want, it does'nt matter. ( 4lbs - 12lbs )

    2 cents worth

    Cheers
