Rod Action

Rod Action
The action of a fishing rod refers to the amount of bend in the rod when you put weight on the tip. The slower the action, the more bend there will be across the entire rod. Conversely, rods with faster action will only bend near the tip. The image below shows examples for common rod actions.
