#5 Rapala

The first name which I am going to take in my list of top fishing rod brands is Rapala, a company which started in Finland in the year 1936. A lot of credit goes to Rapala, for the way the fishing rods are being designed these days as it was this particular brand which brought in the whole concept of rods to catch fish. This brand is world famous for its different types of fishing lures, rods being one of them. Rapala uses the highest grade of Titanium to create very light yet strong fishing rods. Its rods have good sensitivity and the balance is also decent but when it comes to the longer rods, its low range models are very shaky and tentative, which adds up in the negative column of this brand. Go for its Ti-Series models for a delightful experience, it is one of the best series by Rapala.
