    looks like a spinnin rod to me. I have a casting reel on a spinnin rod myself n have had no problems doin that. other than the fact that theres no trigger on the reel seat, and the stripper guide is bigger, theres not much difference between a spinning and casting rod. There are other subtle differences that alot of rod builders will tell you dont make a lot of difference anyway. Ive noticed that mass produced rods generally arent splined anyway, but even if it was splined correctly, the guides on the bottom of the blank wont make that big of a difference to worry about. the main thing is that the guides are on either the 0 or 180 axis of the spline.
    also, i would find out cabelas return policy and see if you can return it if it doesnt work out for you.

    Those looking spinning rods. But a casting reel will work on a spinning rod.

    That is a spinning surf rod. You can read the reviews at the Cabelas link. Tica has casting surf rods unless you want to try St. Croix.

    Yes I was looking at the Tica's to, I don't think I wanna spend the money for a St. Croix though, thanks.

    this code varies from one rod maker to another. so here it goes

    EL- eliminator
    SA-salt water
    100-length 10 feet in this case if the 3rd number was a 6 then it' 10'6"
    2-number of pieces
    MH- medium heavy taper NOT power 2 different ratings
    R-
    S- spinning

    if you want a casting rod simply order the above rod like this EL-SA1002MHRC

    hope this helps.
