What is “Rod Power”?

A fishing rod’s power is best described as how much pressure it can take to flex the rod. Impulse Rods are designed with specific power ranges for both line and lure classes. These can vary from ultralight rods to extra heavy rod powers.

What is a rod’s “Action”?

The action of a rod is best described as how much and where the rod bends when pressure is applied to the tip. Slower action rods will react slower than your moderate to fast action fishing rods. Depending on what type of fish you are targeting, and what fishing lures you are using will determine what rod action you need.

A moderate to slow action means it bends further down in the blank, think of a big rainbow bend. If it’s fast, it reacts quick and flexes quick in the tip.

  • Extra Fast Action Rods: These rods will have a very sensitive tip and the rod will shut down very quickly transferring over to the power of the rod.
  • Fast Action Rods: These rods have a more progressive tip with a balanced and solid backbone.
  • Moderate Fast Action Rods: These rods have a deeper bend than the fast action rod.
  • Moderate Action Rods: These rods are referred to as slow action rods, and have a much deeper bend down towards the handle.
How do I know what rod length I need?

If you want to make short, extremely accurate casts, a shorter rod 7 feet or less is ideal. When accuracy isn’t as important as distance, a rod 7 feet and over will be where you want to look. You’ll notice that each rod we manufacture has a purpose and those purposes can be viewed here on our rods by technique page. Our rods are designed for specific uses but can be used as a multi-purpose rod as well.

  • Short Rods: For when you are in “close combat” and have obstacles in your way.
  • Long Rods: Great for open water, deep water and when casting longer distance is required.
