What indicates the maximum casting weight on our rods?

Indicating the maximum weight for overhead casting (no specific model) does not include Pendulum or Off the Ground casting wich are both tecnical casting methods. The optimum casting weight could be less than indicated as maximum casting weight depending on the model.

What expresses the number of "Action" on our surfcasting rods?

The action expresses on an our rod indicated a number that varies from 0 to 1, where 0 means parabolic rod while a rod with action 1 is perfectly tip action. A rod with action 0.5 is therefore more parabolic compared to a rod with action 0.7.

Why do not we show the total weight of the rods?

The total weight of the rod is in most case a misleading indication One could think that a rod with a weight of 100g is lighter in hand than than a rod from the weight of 120 g.
This very often is not true.
The figure really important is in fact the balance in hand when stretched all the telescopic elements. Greater weight on the butt indeed leads to a definitely greater balancing, better management of the launch and more stable response to vibration.
In Italcanna this balancing process has always been an important question,so we invite you to take in a hand our rods.
