The Abu Garcia Veritas Cast Rod is a superb rod coming from a great company. Available at lengths of 6’6” and 7’, this rod comes at a fast action, with a lure power of medium to medium heavy. When making this rod, the Nano-Technology was used, strengthening a tool that is usually already known to be strong, but making it light as well. Coming with EVA handles for your comfort and titanium guides to hold that line straight, the rod is fully equipped.
This rod was made for strength and balance. For the price, this rod may be one of the best deals we have seen yet from Abu Garcia. It is well-balanced, making it easy to carry. It actually feels light enough to hold for long periods of time. In addition to being well-balanced, this rod is strong. It is tough. Expect to fight with the big fish with no problem when using this rod.
Not only is this rod well-balanced and tough, but it is sensitive. You’ll fight those big fish, but have enough sensitivity in the rod to feel even a light bite. What can be greater than a rod that is strong, light, and sensitive? Not much can beat that.
I would recommend this rod for the fishing enthusiast who knows that they will be fishing a lot. This is not a hobby rod, due to the higher end price. But even as a first fishing rod, this is a great start. You really can’t do much better than the Abu Garcia brand, and you will understand why as soon as you get your hands on this. Use this rod as your main rod for bass and other freshwater fish. This is one rod that I can confidently say is worth every penny of the asking price.
The design of the fishing rod has evolved immensely over the years. The technology used in the manufacturing process as well as on the rod itself has progressed since the old days when flies were tied to the tip of a stick. Rods are getting lighter, faster, and stronger year after year. With this progression, it is easy to see why some of the best fishing tackle companies have a major focus on technology. One such company is Abu Garcia.
In 1921, the engineer Carl August Borgstrom founded Abu Garcia in Sweden. Abu Garcia began as a manufacturer of telephone timers, pocket watches, and taximeters. After World War II, the company turned their focus to fishing rods, developing innovative technologies applied to the angling world. And the company hasn’t looked back since. Picking up one of their rods, it is easy to see the years of technology and development that is packed inside their pieces. Some of the rare pieces can be sold for thousands of dollars as collector’s items.
