You mean medium power instead of med action don't you , there is a differance in the two.

You probably need a med-hvy or hvy powered rod for that application.

You didn't say how those fish got off. I've used medium in pads for years. Yes, it's too underpowered if line gets wrapped around pads and stems, but that stuff is so tough I doubt moving up one notch in rod power would make the difference.

Medium power varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.  I use a kistler medium light for saltwater that is every bit as stout as a mossyback medium.  I use a 7ft MH Powell for the pads and it does great.  I use a curado e7 spooled with braid (typically 30 or 40lb).
