Action determines how much control you have over the fish. The faster the action the more pressure you can put on the fish. The power is your rod weight so deciding the type of fish you want to catch will determine the power you need for your rod.
Saltwater Casting & Conventional Rods: The reel and line are seated on top of the rod and the trigger grip lets you hold the rod securely while releasing the thumb bar/line release. A quick taper at the rod tip for accuracy and a large backbone at the lower portion of the rod for stability. Saltwater bait-casting rods can be made from fiberglass or graphite. Fiberglass is more durable and has greater lifting power than graphite which makes it a preference for larger fish such as tuna and yellowtail. Graphite rods are more bait sensitive and work well for surf fishing and open water when bait is cast over a greater distance.
Spinning Rods: Ranges in length from 5 to 8 feet positioning the reel and guides on the bottom of the pole to provide smooth accurate casts. Features graphite or fiberglass with a cork or PVC foam handle: Longer spinning rods with elongated grip handles for two-handed casting are for saltwater or steelhead and salmon fishing spinning rods are also widely used for trolling and still fishing with live bait the handle length is balanced against the rod′s length triggers are not used on spinning rods spin casting rods are rods designed to hold a spincasting reel which are normally mounted above the handle.
