I got an email the other day from someone who had purchased a rod of mine on the secondary market, a Hunt Pattern “M”, and he was curious about what the “M” stood for. It’s a question that crops up from time to time so I figured it might be a good idea to address it. Basically, the “M” stands for medium action, which is a tweak I offer for those who generally prefer more moderate actioned rods. Since on the whole my rods tends to be a little on the quicker side — in the spirit of the Catskill tradition — that’s usually what customers are looking for when they seek me out so I don’t generally get a ton of requests for “M” rods.
I’m guessing that will change a little bit though, since, in the last year, I’ve introduced a particular taper that I’m really wild about — a 7′ #4 “M” — which I have to say is a really sweet casting rod, one of my current favorites. It’s a taper that I’d been working on for a while and when I finally got it where I wanted it, it just came together really beautifully. If you generally prefer more moderate action rods and are on the lookout for something in the seven foot range, I’d suggest trying out the 7′ #4 “M” Spinoza which is the next batch of Spinozas that I’m planning on putting out.
