The Tenryu Fast Finess M and Fast Finess ML have been specifically designed for linear (straight retrieve) styles of fishing. This style of fishing has become very popular here in the UK and in France, where anglers have realised the potential in getting a weightless soft plastic lure out at distance and retrieve it slowly back across the flow.
These rods incorporate the latest CNT (Carbon Nano Tubing), from what I understand CNT in its molecular form is formed in tubes, making it extrememly strong for the amount of carbon used. This translates to a fishing rod that is very light but also very "steely", which both atributes are needed to perfect a rod for this style of fishing.
As for the action of the rod, well it is indeed "steely" to the tip, making it very sensetive, but the tip has a little life in it, just the slightest bend, but the power comes straight in when you hit the rod to strike the hook home. This is indeed a rod and a style that I am personally really looking forward to learning. So in a nutshell, if you like using weightless or very slightly weighted soft lures, the team at Ultimate Fishing in France have designed this rod and have taken into account all the formats needing in this form of fishing here in Europe.
Personally I think the M is the one for bass and SW fishing, the ML is more for FW and smaller SW fish.....but of course that is up to you, both rods will without doubt tame decent fish.
