Bamboo rods do indeed fish slower. I don't get to use it much because it's not really what you want for salt although some are trying it now. But for small waters it's great. For a faster rod you have to increase the weight due to the taper being different. The rod I have was made by my brother to be a small stream parabolic action rod so when you hook a nice sized fish you can feel it bend all the way through your hands. For saltwater stick to the fast action graphite sticks. I don't love glass rods at all. All i remember is when I was in my 20's and I got my hands on a graphite rod after years of fishing with glass, it was like a revelation and I've never understood the need for folks to bring them back,.
