I hope this helps somebody out in assisting on selection of your next fishing rod.
Some fish are very lite hitters or just barly nibble on your bait down there and when you pull up your line to check your bait its gone and you never even knew you had a bite.
One way to assist you in picking out a rod for catching fish that are light hitters or niblers is to hold the rod in your hand, put the opposite end lightly up against the voice-box of of a assistant and ask then to talk.
On sensative rods you should be able to feel the vibriation in your hand, this will help you catch the shy fish and also a lot more of the smaller ones too!!
I hope this advice is appriciated if so please post a reply and I have a lot more tips from up here in Minnesota I could share.
