The swinging tip is an optical bite indicator that can be placed on a fishing rod . It can be compared roughly to the tip of the angle picker , as it has the same thickness and length. However, it is not firmly attached to the tip of the rod, but connected to the tip of the rod by a short silicone tube. The front part of the tip (the actual swinging tip) bends downwards at a 90 ° angle when the rod is set up. The tiniest and finest bites can be recognized by the slowly rising tip. In essence, this rod is, just like the feeder and the Winkelpickerrute for catching white fish , sea bream , white bream , Tench and other smaller fish selected.
