Each of the rods in the Bass pro series were designed differently – some have fast taper, some have medium. For our rigging rods we prefer a medium taper (most of the bend occurs in the last half of the rod). This makes for a “softer” tip. You want this for rigging because you are trying to feel the fish and release the line before the fish feels you. The other thing to consider on rigging rods is to get a sensitive rod – look at graphite modulus – more is better. Bass Pro Walleye rods are a good place to start.

- Will removing split-rings from my crankbaits and attaching line directly give them better action?
