Default rod action

I see ads for bamboo rods described as "medium fast action". Is this medium fast as compared to other bamboo rods........ or compared to all rods including graphite. I cannot imagine a cane rod would ever compare to a graphite rod in this respect. I prefer the hypnotic, rhythmic feel of a medium to slow rod, so tend to shy away from bamboo advertised as fast.
