There is a trend among rod manufacturers to build faster and faster blanks. It seems like a few years ago you couldn’t get a true “fast” action rod while today its hard to find anything less.
For a lot of applications in the bass world that was a great transition. Unfortunately, it has wreaked havoc on unsuspecting fisherman trying to fish a jig.
I hope this video sheds a little light on what I believe to be as close as you can get to the “perfect” rod for fishing 1/2 oz and heavier jigs.
I hope my insights into rod actions make sense to you. Is this something you’ve noticed? Or do you completely disagree? Either way, leave a comment, I’d love to hear what you think.
