What is a JDM Rod?

Shimano JDM Fishing Rods is an unabashedly hard-core saltwater Spinning Fishing Rods series designed to deliver the ultimate in casting performance balanced with incredible fish fighting power.

What do Rod numbers mean?

The first two digits represent the resulting weld’s minimum tensile strength, measured in pounds per square inch (psi). For example, the number 70 in a E7018 electrode indicates that the electrode will produce a weld bead with a minimum tensile strength of 70,000 psi.

What is a 7 foot medium rod good for?

7-foot, medium-action spinning rod You can use this rod for any type of weightless soft plastic, shaky heads, Ned rigs, lightweight Texas rigs and any other finesse technique you may favor. Having this rod, or one very similar, can pay off in a big way—especially if you’re fishing rural ponds or rivers.

What is a fast action rod?

A fast action rod bends closer to the tip of the rod blank making your lure more sensitive. To be more specific, the added stiffness of fast action rods makes them less flexible, but more powerful. This helps you reel in heavier fish but requires a little more skill to master.

Which is better 6011 or 6013 welding rod?

6011 vs. The E6011 and E6013 are comparable in tensile strength, welding positions, and current types. E6011 is more of a heavy-duty industrial rod better suited for deep joints. E6013 has a delicate arc that is better for clean sheet metal welds.

What is a 6011 rod used for?

E 6011 electrode is a general-purpose electrode performs welding in all positions and efficiently in vertical-up and over-head positions; it is used mainly for sheet metal welding and low silicon deposit application. The electrode arc is easy to control and produces a flat weld bead with light slag formation.

What is 7010 welding rod used for?

Applications: E7010-A1 is most commonly used for welding carbon-moly piping used in high pressure, high temperature steam service and structural shapes, plates and castings, which have a 1/2% Mo content.
