Rod tip actions

Recommended Posts

I got into an argument with a buddy about rod tip actions and I need it to be cleared up. This is my take on them. xfast=whip like fast=a little more stiff than xfast mod fast= almost stiff. He says xfast=almost stiff fast= same as mine mod fast= whip like. So which is it? Am I right or is he? I understand fast on one rod may be different than another.

Action

The action of a rod is a rating, which describes the amount of curvature that occurs in the blank due to loading with weight. The faster the action, the further towards the tip the rod bends. The slower the action, the further towards the middle of the rod and so on.

Action categories include:

Extra-Fast: Bend very near the top of the blank.

Fast: Bend in the upper 25-30%.

Moderate: Bend near the middle.

Slow: Parabolic curvature throughout the entire length of the rod.
