Basically it's how the rod "flexes" during casting, retrieve, and fighting a fish.
Fast action has not much and medium is more parabolic.
Each has its own positive and negatives.
I recommend you go to a tackle shop and feel a couple and read the actions on rods.
The actual power number is strength of that particular blank.
Century 1327= 132" long with a 7 on their power
