Rod actionBending action of fishing rods explainedThe rod action decides how fast or slow actions are implemented by the rod. By bending the blank, the action (for example a light pluck when jigging to let the lure jump over the ground) is transferred to the end, i.e. the lure, at different speeds. But even if you want to make a bite, for example, it takes different lengths of time until it penetrates the lure, depending on the rod action. Important and decisive for the action of the rod is the so-called taper, i.e. the construction of the rod. Types of rod actionA basic distinction is made here between 3 different types: tip action, semi-parabolic action and parabolic action. The semiparabolic action can be divided into 2 different strengths, namely fast and medium tip action – fast actionRods or blanks with a tip action bend only in the upper third and not very strongly there. They are ideal for jigging or twitching when the lure is guided with the rod tip through fine movements, especially when fishing for zander, where the bite must be very strong, fishing rods with a tip action are suitable. Due to the short distance, the power of the rod can be transferred to the lure very quickly and the fish can be raked safely. Semi-parabolic action: Medium-fast actionRods with a semi-parabolic action are basically all-round rods that are suitable for various types of fishing. The advantage is that even smaller fish can bend the rod neatly and the fight is more fun.parabolic action – slow actionRods with a parabolic action bend strongly down to the lower third and therefore convert the energy more slowly under load.Especially very light spinning and fly rods for example have a parabolic action. This helps to cushion the flight of a fish on the last few meters of the drill. Also the shaking of a fish is cushioned during the fight and the associated vibrations are absorbed by the flexible blank, thus preventing the hook from being cut. This describes how quickly or slowly the blank returns from the bend back to the straight starting position. Here it is only necessary to mention that rods that return to the original position faster are better and of higher quality than those that do so more slowly. In practice this is most noticeable in the casting and lure handling characteristics.taperThe taper describes the tapering of the rod from the grip to the tip. The degree of this taper determines the action that the finished rod will have later on.the different strengths are distinguished in:Extra-Fast-TaperMedium-Fast-TaperProgressive ActionCompound-TaperRegular-Slow-TaperDown-TaperDown-Taper Action should not be confused with the load or test curveDown-Taper Action should not be confused with the load curve/test curve. This provides information about how much power a rod has. This is measured by the maximum weight that can be attached to a horizontal rod so that the rod points downwards at an angle of 90 degrees, which is particularly relevant for heavy sea fishing, boat fishing and carp fishing.
