to lace some of your shoes when it comes to plugging know how.\n\nI 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:\n\n1. "Titanium frame Japanese impregnated high modulus Graphite” - is a frame what the Japanese refer to as a blank? Also, what is modulus graphite?\n\n2. What is a "fast TAPER action" - what does taper refer to? I thought a rod was either slow, meduim, medium fast, fast etc etc? \n\n3. Also, nothing to do with rods, but what does a "quarry" refer to when talking about fishing?\n\nI'm looking for a freshwater baitcasting rod and points 1 and 2 have come up a few times.\n\nThanks in advance.
