I'd give it a good long drop and a big slow build up to the hit, start from halfway down the rod at least on the drop and work down from there.

And no fish talk on this SACRED forum!! :D

If my memory serves me right they have a stiffish tip and are designed for off the ground casting with a quick pick up of the lead.
Kstaff has always been the new black in my eyes anyway!!!!!!!
