Rods action

 

Many manufacturers classify the actions of their rods according to a traditional and historical classification which can be reassumed in three different actions: TIP ACTION, PROGRESSIVE ACTION, and PARABOLIC ACTION.

 

We do not follow this classification.

We consider it out dated and imprecise. We prefer to talk about the action of every individual rod as the action “of and when” fishing.

 

 

In each of our series of rods we offer different lengths and line weights. In essence each of the rods within a given series has been designed to have its own precise and definitive action. To explain in a little more detail, we can affirm that all our rods have a progressive action but with different grades of speed. The speed is the time which the rods takes to return to the rod straight position from a curved or loaded position. This varies in function of the rod curve. Its material and its length. All our rods have a speed studied to obtain the best performances in distance and precision which is obtained by varying the curve according principally, the rod’s length.

For example, in a series of rods, a 9’ rod will have its action more towards the tip and therefore a faster action than a 6’6” which moreover will be perceived to have a faster action given the lower inertia and minor flexion arc.


OUR FISHING ACTIONS

 

An action which is definitely moved towards the tip with the lower rod bending only when highly loaded. The rod will produce tight loops in short and medium casts. The loops will tend to open out due to overload of the rod tip on medium to long casts which can only be effected by double hauling.

 


 

The rod’s curve initially is towards the tip and latermore towards the lower part of the rod thus allowing for fairly long false casts without hauling. It will form tight loops in short and medium casts and the reserve of power in the lower part of the rod ensures good loop control and facilitates long casts.

 


 

The lower part of the rod flexes progressively as the load increases. Excellent capacity for false casting and moderate performance in distance where the loop tends to open.

 


 

The whole rod loads harmoniously and the action could be improperly called parabolic given the type of curve it makes when fully loaded. Easy to cast without hauling as long as its timing is rigorously respected. Casting long distances requires a perfect control of the moment of maximum acceleration to avoid the counter flex of the rod tip and the consequent opening of the loop.
