Does sensitivity on rod really matter?

Recommended Posts

Does sensitivity on a rod really matter? Because I really don't use the rod to feel bites. I use the line. So do you think that sensitivity really matters much on a rod?

Nah. Just take a 3/4" dowel, duct tape and paper clips and make a rod.

Are you hinting that you're about to start making your own custom rods?

Let me be the first to pre-order.

Even though the line is what is in contact with the bait, the rod makes a difference.  Take two rods at the oopposite ends of the spectrum and see which feels better bites.

I only worry about sensitivity on my rods that are used for bottom contact baits(T-Rigs, jigs etc).

Anything with trebles, it dosn't matter as much to me.

Paint it a bright color, give it a clever name, and the masses will flock to it.  ;D

Don't forget to make it a split grip.
