Truer word were never spoken.

A 'good' instructor will bring along at least three rods (same line weight) to as many as six with different 'actions.' "One man's meat is another man's poison" so to speak. With a bit of line swapping you'll get a good feel as to what 'fits.' On top of that, there are rod actions that you'd never hand (save for dead last) to a Newbie. This is even more true with 2-handers.

Will/can this change over time? Would be surprised if it didn't.
