FAQ - Wade Rods

Can I change the retrieve direction of my reel?

Absolutely! It's as simple as flipping a bearing over and re-spooling the reel. If you've never done this before, reach out to our team and we'll be happy to guide you through it!


Does my Ripper come with line?

All Ripper combos come pre-rigged with appropriate backing, floating line, and a leader so it's ready to fish right out of the box!


Do you guys still offer rod subscriptions?

We are no longer offering rods purchased on a subscription plan. Anyone who has an existing rod subscription will not be affected by this change however.


What do I do if I'm not sure what rod is best for me or I don't know what line to put on my new reel?

Reach out to our customer success team and we'll be happy to help put the right outfit in your hands! 


Is a fiberglass rod weaker than a graphite rod?

Despite being looked at as an "old school" rod material, the increased flexibility makes a fiberglass rod far less brittle than a graphite/carbon rod, so it's equally strong just in a different way!
