I try get a feel for the action from a waggle and someone pulling on the tip and how it balances and weighs in the hand from just generally holding it. Then the finish comes into it. I like to have full cork or at least almost full cork handle and I prefer a Matt finish and subtle graphics. I always like to get hold of more expensive rods before I buy them but will gamble on buying cheaper ones blind as its not quite so bad if you get it wrong then.
