What Are Medium-Fast Action Rods Good For?

Recommended Posts

That rod will have more flex before the "backbone" of the rod. They will help keep a fish buttoned up with a treble hook bait that doesn't need a hard hookset.

Some flipping rods are also Moderate action. This makes me scratch my head some because you can turn a fish around faster and keep them out of trees better with a faster action. I guess this is done with the rods length.

Medium fast is a good all-around rod that will do just about everything well. A medium with a moderate/fast tip is a great rod for lipless cranks, squarebills and smaller spinner baits. I have a 7'M Moderate action Bu Coo that has no problem driving the hook home with a texas rigged work either.

Yep, an all-around rod.

Most of my rods (spinning) are med fast, a good hook set can be obtained with any kind of lure, exposed hooks or not, imo good timing is the key factor.

In regards to Hi Salinety's comment about moving or turning a fish, a very good way to do that is to move your hand up onto the shaft of the rod, you now have leverage on the fish, another reason all my rods have a foregrip. This is basic " landing fish 101", as with anything it's just a matter of getting the feel for it.
