to lace some of your shoes when it comes to plugging know how.

I know a little about plugs, but it's my rod knowledge that is lacking and after looking through some of Vidars links could you tell me what the following means please:

1. "Titanium frame Japanese impregnated high modulus Graphite” - is a frame what the Japanese refer to as a blank? Also, what is modulus graphite?

2. What is a "fast TAPER action" - what does taper refer to? I thought a rod was either slow, meduim, medium fast, fast etc etc?

3. Also, nothing to do with rods, but what does a "quarry" refer to when talking about fishing?

I'm looking for a freshwater baitcasting rod and points 1 and 2 have come up a few times.

Thanks in advance.

Modulus is another word for the graphite's tensile strength, and as Tunny points out the higher tensile strength the stiffer and lighter the material is.

Titanium framed does in 99.99% of circumstances refer to the guide frame material. Titanium is used in the blanks of some extremely high end rods such as in the Megabass Evoluzion Ti and DTi ranges. ... em2=1#1341

This is a very, very good explanation of rod power and action.
