Rod actions are essentially and historically three: TIP ACTION – PROGRESSIVE ACTION – SLOW ACTION
TIP ACTION – Only the tip sections of the rod flex
PROGRESSIVE ACTION – The rod flexes progressively from the tip to the butt section
SLOW ACTION – Mid flex. Principally the mid and butt sections flex.
POZZOLINI RODS ACTION
All our rods can be defined as progressive actioned rods but with different grades of velocity. The velocity is the time required for the rod to return to the rod straight position from the flexed position. The velocity of the rod varies according to the bend in the rod, the dynamic response of the rod materials and the rod length.
All our rods have been designed to guarantee the best performance in precision and distance and to obtain this we vary the rod’s curve according to principally, their length and the use for which they are intended.
In the same series of rods, a 9’ Rod will have the curve more towards the tip and therefore. theoretically, will be faster than a 6’ 6” rod with a more progressive curve which in reality will appear faster given the quicker response time to return to the rod straight position and the lesser curve of the rod.
