However, shorter rods provide more power to struggle with the fish. Categorically, rods and reels are rated based on their action and power. Action in terms of stiff rod – this means fast and a bending rod- which means slow.
-Power is simply the amount of weight the rod can bear from light to heavy. Another category of saltwater rods is by the pound test lines or lure weight that they are built to work with. Graphite or fiberglass is used for its production in most saltwater fishing rods. While Fiberglass is more powerful and tougher, graphite rods are more sensitive and stiffer.

Low-Speed saltwater Reels have a gear ratio of less than 4:1 to retrieve baits at incredible speed while High-Speed saltwater Reels are with than 6:1. The reel with a less ratio offers more power for fighting big fish. You can also switch from high speed to low speed using some saltwater spinning reels with a push of just a button.

SALTWATER JIGGING REELS AND RODS
One of the oldest fishing techniques is using metal jigs, but in recent years, the development of vertical and rubber jigs has given the technique new vitality.
In vertical jigging, streamlined metal lures are retrieved at incredible speeds using high-speed rods and reels. Rubber jigs, on the other hand, are made to gently bounce and float off the ground. These methods call for specialized equipment to operate a lure either very swiftly or very slowly.
Use a moderate spinning or casting rod with a whippy tip to swiftly retrieve the jig when vertical jigging. High-speed reels that can store hundreds of yards of line and have a retrieve ratio of at least 6:1 are necessary for vertical jigs. See examples
