Fishing poles come in many shapes, sizes and materials and each type of fishing pole is designed to do a specific job. But most of them have one thing in common: they are made up of several sections which are numbered.
The sections of fishing poles are often referred to as “eyes” or “rings”, and they come in three different ways: single eye, double eye and triple eye. Single-eye sections consist of a single metal ring that is attached to the pole by a screw or bolt.
Double-eye sections consist of two metal rings that are connected by a screw or bolt. Triple-eye sections consist of three metal rings that are connected by a screw or bolt.
Each section is numbered for easy identification when assembling the fishing pole. The numbers start at the butt end of the pole and go up in succession as you move towards the tip end. The first section is usually marked with a number one (1) and so on up to the last section that is usually marked with either an even or odd number depending on how many sections there are.
Higher quality fishing poles usually have more than just three or four sections; they may even have as many as eight or nine! Each additional section allows you to adjust the length and action of your rod depending on the type of fish you’re Targeting.
Fishing rod sections are numbered for easy identification when assembling your rod for different types of fishing trips. The first section at the butt end is marked with a number one (1) and each successive section increases in number until you reach the tip end which is usually marked with an even or odd number depending on how many pieces there are.
