How to choose a good spinning rod with Aliexpress
Choosing a fishing spinning rod in Chinese online stores is fraught with a number of difficulties, the main and obvious of which is the lack of an opportunity to examine the equipment in detail before purchasing. This fact puts consumers in an even stricter framework, but if you still decide to purchase a spinning rod in this way, we strongly recommend that you pay attention to the following technical and informational nuances:
- Completeness of the description. It is very important that the spinning rod is characterized as fully as possible and has comprehensive information on the test range, length in the assembled and transport state, materials used, class, level of stiffness, weight-ergonomic parameters and applicability. If the basic data on it is less than half filled or completely absent, make a request to the seller or pay attention to other models.
- Spinning rating. Since the evaluation of the product is carried out by people who have already ordered and tested it before you, the degree of objectivity of such a criterion is not in any doubt. If the rating of the spinning rod is in the range from 4.7 to 5.0 (the lower limit excludes the possibility of missing a good product due to the human factor), then the model is worth taking a closer look at. Moreover, the lower the score, the more weight the following other selection criteria gains.
- Customer reviews. After reviewing the average spinning score, we highly recommend reading the consumer comments. Pay attention to general design notes, impressions of using the models in real fishing conditions, as well as the speed and safety of the package during delivery.

And of course, what kind of rating can do without an outright freebie. SeaShark 0133 is an inexpensive but extremely high quality spinning rod designed for trolling and twitching. There is really nothing to find fault with here – the main criteria are far beyond the required cost. The length of 1.8 meters is complemented by high stiffness and medium action, due to which the bait (no matter how heavy it is) behaves smoothly and more restrained, switching to sharper movements at will.
In terms of the fishing method, the Chinese spinning SeaShark 0133 is more suitable for beginners than for seasoned anglers, since it does not require high skill in bait management. Its ergonomic parameters (even taking into account the 'crust' on the handle) turned out to be extremely high and appropriate. The same 'crust' looks much more reliable than on more expensive counterparts – and such trifles by themselves already dispose consumers to a low-cost purchase.
- very low price with high quality;
- a nice present in the package (usually a spoon);
- 'calm' wiring style suitable for beginners;
- variability in terms of the choice of lures (tails, spoons, wobblers, etc.);
- not detected.
The difference between kuying TTC632UL and the rest of the rating, at first glance, can be traced only by external parameters. Indeed, this Chinese spinning rod deserves interest from the outside for just one view – the finish of the handles and the area for the reel mounting seems so unusual. But the main difference is not this: the main emphasis in kuying TTC632UL was placed precisely on the quality component, bypassing the balancing between load capacities and cost characteristics.
The delicate calculation of the manufacturer has borne fruit: it is still too early to talk about the emerging trends, but the sales prospects of the unusual model are encouraging. Consumers are free to choose the length of the rod themselves, although the offer does not abound with options: 1.8 and 1.9 meters does not give a strong variety of actions. But the combination of a medium system and a low weight practically predetermines the class of “victims” of the equipment – they are mainly perch and river trout.
- high build quality;
- prompt delivery;
- test in the range of 2-14 grams;
- light weight (only 82 grams) and excellent ergonomics;
- original appearance;
- high price, leveled by quality.
Another debutant 'Aliexpress' made an impression not so much with the material part as with its appearance, leaving behind the rating of flimsy and less hardy competitors. Mavllos BLS-ZY-001 is a three-section spinning rod designed for river and ocean trolling with heavy lures (70-250 grams). Its own weight without body kits with the largest length indicator (and there are only three of them: 1.8, 1.95 and 2.1 meters) is 383 grams – for fishing, throwing from the ocean coast is somewhat difficult, although such an item is also provided for in application. Actually, everything in the model points to a phenomenal carrying capacity – it is able to withstand a load of 22 kilograms, which is too steep for river fishing and very modest for oceanic fishing.
In terms of delivery and ergonomic performance, there are no complaints about the Chinese spinning rod Mavllos BLS-ZY-001: everything is done first-class and with the utmost responsibility. Some of the potential buyers may be outraged by the cost of spinning, so we want to warn you in advance: something like this in retail fishing stores will cost several times more.
- high carrying capacity (up to 22 kilograms);
- reliable assembly;
- fair price;
- good ergonomics and prompt delivery;
- impressive run-up in weight of baits (from 70 to 250 grams);
- not detected.
Uncle wolf G81
The two-segment twitching rod Uncle wolf G81 appeared on Aliexpress quite recently, but has already developed some excitement around itself. This was largely due to the cost of the coveted model: at this level, store counterparts will be estimated at about three times more. Of all the variety of characteristics, the most interesting is the combination of hardness and medium-fast action, which are ideal for twitching fishing.
The length of the Chinese spinning rod Uncle wolf G81 is 210 centimeters, which also, as if by chance, hints that the rod belongs to the twich-tip class (and to a limited extent, with due professionalism, jig rods). In terms of ergonomics, one can distinguish verified balancing, a comfortable double EVA handle, low weight (only 96 grams) and a pleasant appearance. The only problem is that at the delivery stage, the product may lose its luster – apparently, the seller is not worried about the reputation of a reliable supplier.
- profitable price;
- a rod 'sharpened' for twitching;
- high ergonomic performance;
- bait test is in the range of 3-16 grams;
- fast but sloppy delivery.
TSURINOYA JOY TOGRTHER TOGETHER IV Area Trout-S602
Another representative of short rods, distinguished by better performance and a small variety of functionality. The length of 1.8 meters allows you to comfortably fish from a boat, as well as fishing from the coastline, in thickets of reeds and trees. Carbon was used as a material of manufacture, providing strength and elastic plasticity of a two-section blank. If we talk about class, the model takes an intermediate position between light and ultra-light, thereby expanding the tolerances for the weight of lures. The minimum rod test is 0.6 grams, the maximum is 10 grams, which makes it possible to use light wobblers, tails, spinners and jigs when fishing.
The obvious improvements of the Chinese spinning rod TSURINOYA IV Area Trout-S602 in comparison with the previous competitor relate to the ergonomic part. The handle of the Chinese spinning rod is divided into two segments and, most importantly, is packed in high-quality and inexpensive EVA material. All this raises the cost of the model somewhat, but the price tag is still too high.
- ideal equipment for twitching and light jigging;
- pleasant appearance and good ergonomics;
- comfortable length (1.8 meters);
- fast and delicate delivery;
- high price.
A small Chinese spinning rod for fishing with a jig, small spinners and wobblers, the contingent of users of which is mainly represented by Russian fishermen. In general, the high rating for Allblue MQS-UL562S is due to the quality of the seller's service and the delicacy in terms of delivery methods. If we take into account the characteristics, then a slightly different picture can be observed here.
The length of this Chinese spinning rod is 1.68 meters, which makes it very convenient for them to fish from a boat. The ultra-fast action allows you to make biting casts and actively participate in the fighting phases of especially active fish. It will be extremely difficult to catch a trophy at the same time – the model is designed for by no means large loads (about 2-4 kilograms) and is used for catching small pikes, perches and asp. By objective standards, the cost of Allblue MQS-UL562S is decently overstated, which naturally affects the level of sales, but does not at all affect the opinion of consumers (which is paradoxical in itself).
- biting and fast;
- high-quality case included;
- a small margin of safety (withstands up to 1 kg of extra weight);
- length that allows you to comfortably cast from a boat;
- high price;
- not the most comfortable and durable handle.
Chinese spinning rod with a somewhat comical and so familiar name for Russia has gained decent popularity among domestic users (more than half of the total number of orders). It does not meet the criteria for information redundancy, but the seller is extremely sociable and will gladly suggest all the characteristics you are interested in. Actually, about them: the rod is intended for river casting, has a fast action (what is needed for this type of fishing), and its length varies from 2.1 to 3.0 meters. Some anglers take an outright risk and use it for ocean fishing – it turns out well, but the catchiness and reliability when biting a large predator is clearly not enough.
The blank of the Chinese spinning rod ToMa TM0156 is made of carbon fiber, which ensures its low weight and good transfer of force to the lure. At a relatively low cost, the model is delivered in a special case (or tube), and the delivery process takes only 15-20 days (depending on the remoteness of the region).
- low cost;
- ergonomics (EVA handle + lightweight blank);
- an abundance of length options (2.1-3.0 m);
- the presence of a portable cover in the kit;
- not always careful delivery process (abrasions or scratches are possible);
- little load capacity for ocean casting.
