Oh geez .......here we go.....Im gonna chime in on this as well, and toss one more opinion into the ring. If I take a complete novice out to the park, I venture to say that I can have them casting just as well with a fast action rod as I could with a slower action rod in the exact same amount of time. IMO it has wayyyy more to do with what you learn on than the action of the rod itself. In fact I believe in the long run, fast action rods are easier to control if learned on from day one. So much for conventional wisdom...
