New Walleye Spinning Crankbait Rod
Let us know if we can help.
it looks like the consensus is that a moderate to fast action is the accepted action for cranks, based on what power you need and the kind of baits you are throwing
my interpretation of how a fast/extra fast tip provides a shock absorber was OK, but for the wrong reasons, the faster action gives the rod a better ability to maintain tension on the line, but, as you guys are saying, gives you faster access to the power of the rod... think that makes sense? hahaha
here's a link with a lot of info, and links to videos with the rod designers, etc..... while on a bass related site, the science probably applies to whatever species you are targeting
discussion has definitely made me think harder about power and action and what the different aspects are...
but I maybe wrong
jerk baits get more strikes on slack, but most cranks you are reeling in ??
do like the discussion...always willing to learn
