Both the Elite spinning rod and baitcasting rod models are built virtually identical. Outside a few layout changes, the main difference between these two different versions will be the type of reel you’re going to be using with the rod.
If you’re going to be using a spinning reel, you’ll want to get the Elite spinning rod version.
If you’re going to be using a baitcaster, you’ll want to get the casting rod version.
The rod itself is made exactly the same way, but since spinning reels and baitcasters attach to the rod differently, there are some minor changes that are required in order for the rod to work correctly with that type of reel.
Just make sure when purchasing the Elite you get the correct version to work with the reel you’re going to be using.
