Can I put a baitcast reel on a spinning rod? I have several spinning rods and would like to purchase a baitcasting reel, but really don't want to spend more money on a different rod. I heard somewhere that rods are built to flex in a certain direction. I don't know how valid that is because rods flex in various directions when pulling up a fighter. Can anyone chime in?

Usually a Baitcaster is shorter & stiffer than a Spinning Rod,the Rod is designed different to a Spinning Rod,go to:www.cabelas.com.outdoorsinfo.fieldguides.bass gear for some info.
Also It's something to do with the Spine not being in the correct position when weight is applied to the Blank/Rod & damage may occur as the Spine is supposed to be the Backbone of the Rod.
