No they won't, but they will aid many fishermen in buying a rod that will do what they intend to do without having to do a lot of research or worry. That is the point and it sells a ton of rods.

I guess an inexperienced fisherman could benefit from a species specific label. Pretty sure that most of the guys on this board can pick up a rod off of the rack and determine what species it would be best for.

So my fish hooked to fish landed ratio didn't go up because I started fishing a drop shot on a rod I built on a blank that was specifically designed for the drop shot technique?

I wish I would have known it wasn't going to make a difference before I built the two drop shot rods I built ... I could have saved a lot of money

Most fishermen aren't rod builders nor experts. Just weekend guys and the task and/or species specific rod marketing has been widely appreciated by them.
