The rod tapers from one end to the other. The degree of taper determines how much the rod will flex when stress is applied to it. Slower rods are easier to cast. A wider loop on the forward cast reduces casting distance.
Action: Affects your casting distance and accuracy also relating to the lure or bait you need and the strength of the reel that should be used. The smaller the fish the lighter the action needed while the heavier the fish the heavier the action. An action may be slow medium fast or a combination (e.g. medium-fast.). An extra fast action rod bends just at the tip. A fast action bends in the last quarter of the rod. A moderate-fast action rod bends over the last third. A moderate action rod bends over the last half. A slow action rod bends all the way into the handle.
As with any other gear and equipment destined for fishing before making a choice you have to look at a set of details pertaining to your needs and preferences. Where will you be fishing? What kind of size and fish species are you going to pursue? Are you a weekend or vacation angler or would you rather do it as often as possible? Just how much are you willing to spend on a new setup?
