Default Sesitivity Test

Someone showed me a great way to test the sensitivity of a rod. This is great if you are out rod shopping, the only problem is that it takes two people to do it. Hold the rod like you would if you were fishing. Now put the tip of the rod lightly against the other persons adams apple and have him/her talk. With a good rod like an upper end Loomis, you will feel quite a vibration going to your hand. With a cheaper rod, you will get little to no vibration. I just bought a Loomis GL3 8'6" 8 - 12 drift rod and the salesman at FMS showed me this trick. Pretty Cool. What are some other ways you ifishers use to determine the quality of a new rod (Before you buy it)?

Work is for people who have an expensive fishing habit to support.
A people that values its privileges above its principles will soon lose both.
