Grip or Handle : The best type is constructed “through the handle” rather than a glued-on grip. Grips are composed of different materials such as cork foam or wood which provide comfort while casting and reeling in a fish. Cork Grips : Comfortable and do not absorb much water Foam Grips : Lightweight durable comfortable and do not break Pistol Grip : Shortest type of grip contoured to the shape of your hand with a hook for your index finger to help cast more accurately.
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.
You may also find it a good idea to bring some sharpening stone with you as well. It is nothing unusual when struggling to bring such a strong fish out of the water to have your hooks becoming dull and ineffective. This is where a good tool for sharpening your hooks can come in handy.
